Hello and welcome to years 1 and 2!
Key Stage 1 leader: Miss spencer
In year 1, we are taught by Mrs Jardine, Miss New, Mrs Dennison and Mrs Pattinson. We are helped in our learning by Miss Bilton, Miss Dryden and Mrs Williams.
Our year 2 teachers are Miss Spencer and Mrs Foxton. Supporting us in class, we have Mrs Hutchinson.
In year 2 this term we are looking closely at how animals adapt! We will be carrying out a study on the life of Charles Darwin, creating animal documentaries and writing some brilliant factual pieces. We will be looking at habitats, adaptation, food chains and overall just how amazing our world and the animals that inhabit it are. Keep an eye on our website in the ‘what we’ve been up to section’ for up to date photographs of your child in action. You have been so supportive throughout the autumn term and we can’t thank you enough for your continued support.
In Year 1 our topic for this Spring term is Top Traditional Tales! We are really looking forward to reading lots of the famous stories like The 3 Billy Goats Gruff, Hansel and Gretel, The 3 Little pigs and lots more. We will also be comparing old and new versions of these stories. We will have many maths problems to solve including our favourite fairy tale characters in maths and helping the 3 Billy Goats gruff find a new way to cross the river. Keep checking to see exactly what have been designing and making in DT and Art. In Science we are really looking forward to learning all about healthy eating and how to stay fit and healthy. Plus we will be designing and making our own houses for the witch from Hansel and Gretel! What an exciting term- photos to follow!
Thank you for your continued support.
Key Stage 1 staff.
Dates for your diary
All Key Stage 1 homework is given out on a Monday and returned by Friday. Children will receive 1 piece of homework each week in their homework books. This will alternate between a literacy and numeracy piece of homework which will be linked to what the children are learning that week in the given subject.
Year 2 will receive weekly spellings each Monday, we ask that you practice with your child as many times as possible during the week in preparation for them to take part in a spelling challenge containing those words on Friday.
If your child has any problems with their homework, please pop in to see the teacher who set it we are always happy to help!

Year 2 PE

We ask that you leave your child’s PE kit in school as we do so many different PE activities throughout the term. Staff in Key Stage 1 will ask children to take their PE kit home at the end of each half term to be washed.
