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.
Our topic for this half term is 'Food and The Four Nations'. We will begin by locating and naming the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. We will then look at the capital city of London; heading off on a virtual tour, spotting and naming some of the famous landmarks there. Finally we will look at each of the four countries in turn, comparing the physical and human geography and researching the historical roots of celebrations unique to each one.
This half term our work will be based around the traditional tale 'The Gingerbread Man'. We will be writing instructions, retelling the story in our own words and making adapted versions of the tale.
In maths we will be measuring and comparing length, height, weight and volume. We will build on our counting in 2's, 5's and 10's by dividing objects into equal groups. We will also be looking at halving and quartering shapes and objects.
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.
