 Wren Class








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 Mrs Coduri-Dunn and Mrs Edhouse. 



Our topic thread for this half term is 'What can we do to help Planet Earth?'. We will be thinking about what we throw away and finding out what happens to it gets taken by the refuse collectors. We will learn about how we can dispose of things responsibly to help protect wildlife and Planet Earth. We will be finding out about climate change and the negative effects it is having on the planet. We will learn about ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint to help prevent global warming.


Our Literacy will link closely to our topic theme. We will be writing persuasive texts in the form of posters and leaflets to share what we have learnt about protecting our planet with the rest of the school community. We will be writing questions and sentences containing facts, working on using the correct punctuation for different types of sentences. reception children will be using their phonic skills to write labels, lists, captions and simple sentences.


In maths we will be measuring and comparing capacity. We will consolidate our understanding of addition and subtraction and the methods we can use to support our working out. We will build on our counting on in 2's, 5's and 10's by dividing quantities into equal groups.


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.
