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


Welcome to 1/2B’s class page

Our class teacher is Mrs Brown. We are very lucky to have Mrs Heron and Ms McCartney to help us with our learning this year. We are very excited about getting back to school and learning new things.
To begin the autumn term the children have a transition unit based on the author Julia Donaldson, we will be focusing on the story ‘The Cook and the King’. This is to help settle the children who have moved into Y1 from the Foundation Stage as well as continuing the work from our transition day.

We will then be starting our autumn term topic called ‘Houses and Homes’. This is a science-based topic when we will be looking at and naming a variety of different materials, thinking about their properties and how they are best suited to make different objects. This will then link into the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ when we will investigate which material is the best to build a wolf-proof house! No spoilers please!
In design technology, just like the three little pigs, we will learn how we can join different materials to create a strong structure and then construct our own houses. We will be looking at the local area and the different houses we can see using our sketchbooks to record different designs. Throughout this term, we will be learning various poems and looking for quality vocabulary to help us make our writing more interesting.

Please note:
PE is on a Monday so the children need their indoor kits.
Our Library time is on a Thursday so please can the children ensure they bring their books to exchange on this day.
We have a busy and exciting term ahead and can’t wait to get started!
