Welcome to Wren Class. We are a mixed class of Reception and Year 1 pupils.
Our Class Teacher is Mrs Pickess and our teaching assistants are Mrs Knight and Mrs Codury-Dunn.
Our topics this half term are 'Celebrating Me' and 'Africa'. We will start the new school year by getting to know each other; finding out about each other's birthdays, families and homes. We will discuss the games we like to play and our favourite places to play. In out Africa topic we will compare our home lives with those of an African child and explore the landscape and houses they live in.
We will be reading the book 'On Sudden Hill' by Linda Sarah and Benji Davies and 'The NEW Small Person' by Lauren Child. We will discuss how the children's lives are similar to our own. We will learn to write lists and use capitals for names. We will also read the book Handa's surprise, thinking about how life in Africa is different from our own. We will write lists, labels and information texts.
In maths we will be working on place value within 10, addition and subtraction to 10 and exploring 2D shape.
Every Monday afternoon we will be taking part in a Forest School session within the school grounds. These sessions will provide an valuable opportunity for us to be outside in the natural environment exploring the world around us. This will enhance the development our language and communication skills, help us to build trust with others and the world around us, take leadership of our own learning and build resilience and self-esteem. Our science curriculum will be taught through these sessions.
Welcome to Chestnut Class! We are a Year 1 and 2 mixed age-group class. Our teacher is called Miss Laurie. We also
have other specialist teachers working with our class too: Mrs Coleman (PSHE) Mrs Pickess (Art) and
Miss Thompson (PE.)
Learning: This Summer Term our new topic is Food and Farming. In Literacy we are basing our work on popular
stories including “The Enormous Turnip” and “Farmer Duck.” We are embracing the creative curriculum, making
links to other subjects such as art in which children are making farm animals and chicken hutches based on the story
"Rosie's Walk" by Pat Hutchins. To bring alive this topic through first hand experience, Chestnut Class will be going
on a Farm trip in which they can learn more about the different types of farms, machinery and how food produce such as sugar beet and corn are grown in our local area.
