Spring Term 2019

This term our topic is The Great Fire of London.  We will be learning all about how the fire started and spread so quickly.  We will meet Samuel Pepys and find out about his famous diary and look at several genres of writing as well as enjoying numerous non-fiction and fiction books.  Our own writing will include diaries and newspapers - different ways of recounting what happened.

We use a mastery approach to mathematics which allows the children to experience numbers through practical equipment, showing what they have learnt visually and finally showing their understanding through formal written methods.  This term we will look closely to understand multiplication and division, fractions, and then measurement.

In science we are investigating humans and other animals.  We will look at our place in the animal kingdom and find out how we can stay fit and healthy.

In RE we will start with our Harvest celebration before thinking about the special ways that Christians welcome their babies.  We will talk about the Bible and particularly the lessons that Jesus taught us through parables.

PE is every Wednesday afternoon.  Please ensure that children have their named PE kits in school at all times.

Spellings happen for Year 1 and 2 every Thursday.  The current spelling week and a link to the spelling lists is at the top of this page.

We strongly encourage you to read with your child every day, even if it's just for a few minutes.  You can record their reading in their home-school link book.  This book can also be used to pass any messages on to us.

Parents of children in Reception can see daily updates on their child's progress through the Tapestry app.  Please speak to one of us if you need help with this.

We are available on the days we work with the children from 3:15pm if you wish to discuss an aspect of your child's learning.  Alternatively, you can make an appointment through the school office.
