Hello and welcome to our class page!
Please remember that we are always happy to speak to you in regards to your child or any concerns you may have - please ask at the office to arrange a suitable time to speak to one of us.
This term we are headed out of this world - our new topic is Space! Over the coming weeks we will be looking at planets, stars and other space related things. On 24th January we are having a very special topic day with a themed lunch put on by Mrs Heap. Keep coming back to see what happens!
We had brilliant fun on our Space day with Captain Darling and learning lots of space related facts.
In the term leading up to Christmas we are looking at our new topic - 'World War II' - from the point of view of a child. This includes the 11th November and Remembrance as well as how hundreds of thousands of children were evacuated to the countryside for their safety during The Blitz. We will also be incorporating an 'Evacuee Day' on 15th November - please see the main Y1/2 page for a copy of the letter about this.
Our Pirates topic has been great fun and the children especially enjoyed the Pirate Day, making our own pirate chants, sharing their summer holiday projects and the wide range of pirate themed stories we have read together.
Homework this year
Homework sent home on a Friday will consist of a piece of Phonics (set by their phonics teacher) and a piece of Maths. Please ensure your child's homework is in school before Friday of the next week so that it can be marked and updated.
This is in addition to their reading books, we ask for reading five times each week if possible and any reading your child does to be recorded in their diary.
Spellings will be sent home every Wednesday for our class and will be tested on the following Wednesday. Their spelling diaries do not need to be returned to school before the Wednesday, to allow them to learn their words!
Thank you and keep checking back here as this page will be updated.
