What an unusual spring term; with the snow taking several of our learning days away from us!! I hope you enjoyed having fun in the snow and creating memories whilst learning outdoors on those days!
Even though it may have been a short term; we have managed to pack in a lot of learning!! Our topic My World, Your World has been really interesting and we have enjoyed sharing about our own lives and our locality. It has been wonderful finding out about Africa and our recent workshop and African art allowed our creativity, music and PE skills to flourish.
In Literacy we enjoyed our learning about Beegu. For those that were able to attend our Class assembly you will have seen how proud the children were of their achievements, which is always wonderful to see. We also enjoyed looking at the text Handa’s Surprise and Handa’s Hen and creating our own stories. I know the parents that attended family learning were impressed with our descriptive skills.
We continued to develop our Maths skills- learning about shape, money and revisiting the four calculation areas; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Well done Class 2.
Thank you to the parents that were able to join us for family learning, open book days and the open Science afternoon during this term. We hope that you enjoyed experiencing our classroom environment and taking part in some of the learning which we do. These opportunities allow you to see just how hard we work each minute of every day!!
It was lovely to finish the term with an Easter Egg quiz hunt and now onto our long, but equally busy Summer term!
We’ve got a trip to the Butterfly House coming up soon to launch the beginning of our new topic, which is Creepy Crawlies. Our new topic (and hopefully the weather!) will allow us to take part in more outdoor learning this term; we really enjoyed doing this last term as part of our Andy Goldsworthy inspired art work. We’ll be undertaking lots of Science, Art and D& T linked to the topic and links will also be made with other subject areas when appropriate. To find out more about what we will be learning for each part of the curriculum check out our class curriculum document, available to download from this page.
Thanks for all of the support received over this term. We look forward to seeing you at our class assembly later in the year. In the meantime, we’ll keep working hard, supporting one another and having lots of fun!

The Phonic Screening check is for all year 1 Children. The following is a link to the RWI website where Ruth Miskin explains a little more about the process. http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/parent-tutorial-phonics-screening-check/
We have also added a parents guide. This was first produced last academic year, but the advice and information is relevant to this years phonics screen.
We have also attached a copy of last years phonic screen,so you can use this information to support your child at home.
