'Our school is committed to inspirational teaching to create aspirational young people.'


Hello, welcome to 1/2 BD

We are about to start a great adventure in key stage one!

We are lucky that there are two class teachers! Mrs Brown to start the week and Mrs Dixon to end the week. 


We are very excited about what will be doing this term. We are really looking forward to continuing our learning journey in Key stage 1.


To begin our time together we will be looking at Julia Donaldson books, such as ‘Fox’s Socks’, ‘’ and ‘The Gruffalo’.

 We will then be learning about ourselves and what keeps us healthy, fit and what makes us, us. A healthy diet is on the menu and we will be visiting a local supermarket for inspiration to help us create a healthy meal.

As artists we will be looking at portraits by various different artists especially Julian Opie. We will then create our own self-portrait in his style.

As the nights get darker, we will be thinking and finding out about the events of Bonfire night and in particular, about Guy Fawkes and learning why we celebrate Bonfire night.


In 1/2 BD we have Our Everywhere Bear who will be going adventures every weekend with one child from our class. The children will be encouraged to record their adventures through pictures or sentences, their entries will then be bound into a class book. We hope Our Everywhere Bear enjoys all of his exciting adventures.


Please note that PE for 1/2 BD will be on Wednesday afternoon, we will need our PE kits on that day with all our clothes named.
