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, Mr Chapman and Mrs Walpole.
LITERACY AND TOPIC
We will be taking inspiration for our learning this half term from the books 'Zog and the Flying Doctors' and 'Lost and Found'. Zog will link to us looking at nursing in the past and present. We will find out about Mary Seacole and have fun making herbal potions to cure some imaginary ailments. We will role play looking after some toy patients: recording their symptoms and writing instructions on how to cure them. 'Lost and Found' will link to us researching where penguins are from and to learning all about about the South Pole. We will also imagine the conversations that the boy and penguin may have had on their long journey and the stories they might have told each other to make the time pass more enjoyably.
In maths we will counting, writing and ordering numbers to 20, adding and subtracting numbers to 20 and exploring place value within numbers to 20.
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.
