Teaching Assistant : Miss Whittard
We are a mixed year 1 and 2 class with 29 children. Each week our learning consists of reading, writing, maths and topic. Alongside this R.E, P.E and computing make up the weekly curriculum. P.E (curriculum map) take place twice a week on a Monday and Friday. Pupils are expected to bring in appropriate P.E kit every Monday which should include a t-shirt, shorts/joggers and trainers or daps. This can then remain in school until the end of term wen it will be sent home.
Homework will be given out weekly, usually a Friday, which will include reading to an adult, spellings and number facts to learn at home, alongside a writing and maths activity linked to class learning.
Our pupils enjoy learning and we love inspiring them to learn more, but we can only do that with help from home. Please listen to your child read at least three times a week and encourage them to complete their homework.

The subject focus for this topic is science and DT. The children will be introduced to the topic by bringing their wheels to school. They will investigate different materials before designing, making and testing a new vehicle for Mrs.Armitage. To achieve this they will be taught how to use a variety of different tools alongside learning how to overcome problems. We hope that by writing our own set of instructions on 'How to make a moving vehicle' will help us here.
We will also be taking inspiration from The Way Back home and writing our own journey tale.
In maths this term, will start the term focussing on number and place value, before moving onto addition and subtraction. Measuring will also form an important part of making a vehicle for Mrs.Armitage.
Term 2- Can party food be healthy?
This term we will be looking at a range of party food and combining this with learning about a healthy lifestyle. Our literacy explanation text will link here nicely- 'how to keep healthy'. This term we will also look at the traditional tale 'Cinderella' where the children will explore the characters, describe them and innovate the story to create their own. This term's P.E topic is dance and the children will have a chance to learn some ballroom moves, hopefully with a few performing in the Christmas production on -
Tuesday 12th December 2017 at 2:00pm and

In maths this term we are looking at 2D and 3D shapes linked to food and packaging, comparing measures of food and drink and solving number problems with a food and drink theme. We will of course end the term with some Christmas activities and look forward to seeing you at the Christmas fayre on Thursday 7th December 2017.
