Year 1 News And Whole Year Events

As part of our Holy Rood 42, Year 1 visited the cenotaph in Swindon town centre. Cenotaph means 'empty tomb'. It symbolises the people who have died during the First World War. We noticed there were lots of poppies around the bottom with messages to remember the soldiers. Finally, we took some time to reflect during a two minutes silence.


The children have had a fantastic start to Year 1 with lots of exciting lessons. They have explored numbers to 20 using tens frames and enjoyed counting backwards on 'Backwards Day'. We had a special visit from Miss Thomas and Milo. She thought Year 1 would able to write a fantastic non-chronological report about him for the office so they know what to do when they look after him next week. We will show you some of our writing when we have finished 🙂.
