    Try starting from the beginning:

    \frac{d^2y}{dx^2} = \frac{-M}{EI}

    Integrate with M you have calculated for 0 <= x <= 1m. You will get a constant which you can eliminate using your known boundary conditions i.e. what sort of supports you have at either end of your beam.

    You now have an expression for the slope in the region 0 <= x <= 1m.

    Integrate again for an expression for the deflection - you have to eliminate another constant.
