Year 1 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 6th May


The next few weeks of Literacy will be based on the story of The Papaya that Spoke, by Pie Corbett.

We will be:
• Creating actions for the story.
• Learning and performing the story.
• Identifying events that happen in the beginning, middle and end of the story.


In Maths we will be having a very practical week investigating position and direction. We will be describing different turns such as whole, half and quarter turns. We will finish the week by applying these skills in designing and making our own mazes. A fun way to practice at home would be to let your child direct you to different places at home or if you are feeling really brave to direct you somewhere familiar in the car!

In Topic we will begin to use our knowledge of buildings to compare old and new structures from around the world. We will also look at the similarities and differences between the United Kingdom and Bahrain, by comparing their landscapes, and begin to learn more about the United Kingdom and its four countries. We will end the week by beginning to look at the Houses of Parliament in London, England.


Morning drops offs

Please be reminded that children are not to be left alone in the playground in the mornings. Please choose one of the following options instead.

  • Drop your child at the morning club (in the main sports hall) from 7am
  • Drop your child at the ‘drop off zone’ from 7:15am. Children will be escorted to the morning club and then to their classrooms after 7:30 when classrooms are open.
  • Drop your child to their classroom at 7:30 when school begins. Registers are taken by 7:45am.

Children’s jackets/jumpers

While it is hotting up outside, the children often feel a little colder inside under the AC units. It is not always possible to turn the AC off, when many of the children are still warm, so children should continue to bring their over wear in case they are cold in class.


Swimming lessons have now commenced for some classes. Please remember that swimming is part of the curriculum and it is expected that all children will swim. A doctor’s note must be provided if your child is unable to join their session. They MUST wear a swim cap in the pool and must be able to dress and undress themselves quickly to be ready for their slot.
