Included for this week are the numbers 2-9, this is to help with number formation.


Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Chadwick and the Milhazes team



We have had a wonderful week and the children are settling into class well and I have loved getting to know them all.

This week we have acted out our ‘Walking in the Jungle’ story perfectly, using lots of expression and actions. Children have been writing sentences using capital letters and full stops correctly. We have also started looking at number and place value to 20, representing numbers in a variety of different ways.

We are holding a meet the teacher evening to discuss life in Milhazes on the 20th September at 6.00pm. This will last for 40 minutes.


We will continue to use Tapestry and this will be set up over the next few weeks.


PE is on a Monday and Friday. PE kits should remain in school and will be sent home half termly for washing. Please note that children need a pair of trainers for all PE sessions.

Forest School

We will be getting mucky so they can bring a change of clothes on a Tuesday, they will need trousers and a long sleeve top, with wellies or sturdy footwear such as walking boots, along with a waterproof coat. Please do not go to any expense, if you have any problem with any of the clothing please come to see me at the end of the day. Clothes will be sent home that day as we do not have space to keep them in the classroom and they will need washing.

We have decided to keep wellies in class, so from next week we will not send the wellies home. Children will also be coming home wearing their forest school clothes, as this allows us to have more time in the forest.

National Dot Day

On Monday we are having an art themed day to celebrate national dot day. Our class focus is happy. Please can children bring into school on Monday an object/picture that makes them feel happy.

I look forward to meeting you next week at meet the teacher.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Chadwick and the Year 1 team.
