Friday 28th May
Thank you for a wonderful final week of the Summer term 1. The children all deserve a rest during the half term holiday. Thank you to all parents and carers who helped the children produce the fantastic lighthouses, the children were so proud of their work, check out our Waverley Instagram for further pictures. Hope you all have a great holiday.
Super proud of Year 1 this week, WE WON THE TROPHY! They ran in the rain to achieve an average score of 5.18 laps in 2 minutes around our Circle of Fitness. Congratulations!
Week 5 - Summer 1 - 21st May
What a busy week Year 1 have had! From writing stories about Mr Grinling's adventures, making equal groups in Maths, learning to use an atlas and name the four countries of the UK in Geography, painting flowers in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe in Art, singing sea shanties with Mrs Robson, completing our coding programme in the Computing suite and learning about the religion Buddhism in R.E.
Week 4 - Summer 1 - 14th May
The children are so excited to hear what Mr Grinling gets up to next in our story of the week this week called... The Lighthouse Keepers Tea. We have found out so far that he needs to find a new hobby, he tried baking some bread but he was too messy and gave up. The children decided that they should try to make some bread for his tea as they know how to sta nice and tidy. So on Tuesday we made some bread sticks that we baked on the fire at Forest School on Wednesday. The children enjoyed discussing the process of baking and cooking the bread with each other. We encouraged the children to talk in full sentences and discuss what they would write about their experience. Well done Year 1, you were so safe at Forest School this week and you could all recall how we stay safe next to the fire. Some of the children gave their bread sticks 10 out of 10, others gave them a 0 out of 10.... maybe Mr Grinling won't like his tea after all.
Week 3 - Summer 1 - 7th May
In Maths, this week the children have been learning how to subtract from 20, taking away a 1 digit number and also taking away a 2 digit number from numbers 11- 20 eg 18 - 11 = 7. The children have been solving these in many different ways, ten frames, counting back on a number line and mentally, then writing down the number sentence and answer. Take a look at their work...

The Circle of Fitness...
A huge thank you to Miss Cowling is needed for organising the whole school exercise project called The Circle of Fitness. The children are challenged daily to run around the track on our bottom yard, in Year 1 we are currently working on 5 laps each day. Then on a Friday morning Miss Cowling takes Year 1 down to see our progress, and challenges the children to do as many laps as they can in 2 minutes. The children love this and I have really seen a different in their running progress, determination and then their concentration when we go back into the classroom. Well done for coming 2nd this week Year 1!
Week 2 - Summer 1 - Friday 30th April
Lots of fun and learning this week! Take a look at our learning...
Week 1 - Summer 1 - Friday 23rd April
Welcome back to Waverley. I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday. The children have came back into school very settled. We have had lots of great experiences, learning and fun this week. The children went to Forest School with Miss Cowling on Wednesday morning, they were learning about the 5 senses and completed 5 different activities about each sense. The children thought that this was a wonderful morning and learnt so much. It was so nice to be all out and about together and hear the children talk about their outdoor learning and laughing together. In Science, we were looking at how much our bean plants had grown over the holidays (A big thanks to Mr O'Brian who water them for us and kept them growing). We measured their progress, looking at the roots and then we decided to plant them in our school garden so their roots can spread. I am now setting the weekly spellings on Seesaw. Thank you to all parents who are accessing them and practising spellings at home. Well done Year 1.
