 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 and Mrs Hotchkiss



This term our topic theme is 'China'. The children will be finding out about the children who live there and how there everyday life is both the same and different from ours. We will be learning about it's famous landmarks, culture, festivals and food.


In literacy we will be producing a variety of different types of writing. We will begin by looking at China and some of its traditions and customs. We will write postcards describing the landmarks, traditions and customs that we experience. Midway through the term, the class may receive a surprise parcel from China containing a mysterious egg. What will we do with it and what might it contain? We will read the story 'The Egg' and hear about a mysterious egg that hatched into a dragon. We will be writing descriptions and dragon poetry. After half term we will look at the story 'The Magic Paintbrush' which is a Chinese traditional tale.

We will continue with daily phonics sessions and guided reading three times a week.


In maths we will be counting,writing and ordering numbers to 20, adding and subtracting numbers within 20 and exploring place value with numbers to 50.



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.
