Class 1

Welcome back to Term 2!


We had a wonderful Term 1 and the children settled in really well.  We hope the children enjoyed it too!

Our topic for Term 2 is called Journeys Near and Far and will incorporate work completed in our English, computing and History. 

Our first English text will be Little Red Riding Hood, followed by Snail and the Whale. 

Thank you for all your support in completing homework and sending this back in on time.  Spelling books will be coming home this week. 

Our value this term is TRUST.


Reading books will continue to be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Books will only be changed if the reading record has been signed to say the book has been read twice.  This supports the pupils in recognising words so they become more familiar and increases fluency.  Please colour in the reading fingers on their homework sheet.  If they complete 5 each week they get a ticket to enter our whole school reading raffle. 

Library books will now be changed on a Thursday from next week (15th). 


Sadly, we said Goodbye to Miss Reeves at the start of this term as she is moving on to another position nearer her home.  The children made her a lovely card.  We wish her well.




In maths we used comparative language when comparing numbers.

Term 1


Our value for this term is Thankfulness.


Our Topic title is Toy Story!

What are your favourite toys to play with?

What did your parents, carers or grandparents like to play with when they were young?

We will be looking at how toys have changed over history and asking the children and their families to share some of their favourite toys. 


Linking in with our toy topic, our core text this term is Traction Man is here by Mini Grey.  We have been acting out Traction Man's adventures around the house as he explores shipwrecks in the sink, rescues toys and battles evil pillows.


Reading books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please record in your Reading Record each time you read. Children need to read the book at least twice before it is changed.

Library books will be changed on Tuesdays. 


Our PE session with FutureStars is on Tuesday afternoons, however, please have your PE kits in school every day as we often do PE on other days too. 


Homework sheets will be given out on a Friday, to be returned on the following Wednesday.
