 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, Mrs Edhouse and Mrs Kent. 



Our topic thread for this half term is 'Can We Be Weather Experts?' We will be learning about types of weather we experience across the UK and how the weather changes with the seasons. We will think about the ways in which weather affects our day to day life across the year. We will explore the weather that is experienced in countries close to the equator and near the poles and learn how weather in these places is less affected by the seasons.

In English will be listening to, performing and writing weather poetry. We will explore patterns of language, rhyme and repeated phrases. We will use vocabulary collected from both listening to poetry and our topic work to aid us in writing our own weather poems.


In maths Year 1s will be working on place value withing 100, multiplying and dividing in multiples of 2,5 and 10. They will also be learning about position and direction and time.

Reception will be counting, comparing and adding numbers to 10.


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.
