 Wren Class







 Autumn Term 2020


 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 and Mrs Edhouse. 



Our topic thread for this half term is 'How does the type of land there is affect the farming done?' We will start by exploring the type of farming that takes place locally. We will look at the features of farms and the type of land they use. We will find out where Wales is on a map and compare the geography and farming there to that locally. We will think about the effect of weather on farming and investigate if there are differences in the average annual  weather between Wales and Wilby. We will put the knowledge we have learnt to test, by designing farms to suit different terrains and climates. Finally we will get any unanswered questions answered through interviewing a local farmer via Zoom. 


To fit with our topic theme our work in English will be based on the books 'Rosie's Walk' and 'Farmer Duck'. We will be applying the skills that we learn in phonics to write names, labels, captions and sentences. We we analyse the characters and plots and plan and write our own versions of the stories.


In maths we will be working on place value with numbers to 10 then 20. We will be counting, ordering, comparing and recording numbers. We will begin to add and subtract with 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.
