Years 1 and 2

Our classroom has moved into a new room this year in the main school.  The emphasis is different from reception as the children start to focus on the Key Stage 1 curriculum and the National Strategies for mathematics and literacy.

Reading continues through the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme with progression onto chapter books as appropriate.
Weekly spelling tests are part of the curriculum, to support those non-phonetic words that just have to be learnt.
Homework is also set, focussing mainly on reading, writing and maths.

The class is involved in the school Nativity play which is part of the Christmas service at the church.
An outing is planned for each term, with a joint Christmas visit with Years 1 & 2. In recent years we have visited the toy museum, Park House, the Royal Stud, the Butterfly Park, Thursford, Princess Theatre, Sea Life Centre.

Fantastic sporty morning for KS1 at Active Kids Festival

Posted on February 19th, 2018

KS1 class has an amazing sporty morning at Lynnsport’s Active kids festival on Monday morning. They were taking part with pupils from Flitcham Primary Academy and were organised into 3 mixed groups for a rotation of activities, that kept them busy all morning. They enjoyed running, jumping and team games, but by far the most popular were the parachute games. A great time was had by all and the school received a pack of resources to use back in school, along with certificates for every child taking part.

After a wet morning, the sun managed to burst through just at the nick of time, for The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall to see the children’s fantastic work. They thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of their hard work.

Year 1 and 2 woodland art

Posted on July 18th, 2016

Year 1 and 2 have been creating art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy today. Having looked at his work on line for inspiration first, we set off into our woodland area to create our own natural art in small groups. Have a look at the stunning results. The children then voted for their favourites and we had 3 winning teams with joint first place :- Thomas Strudwick, Stanley Farr-James, Oliver Herbert and Elliot Wright, Chloe Southwell and Clara Moreland and finally Libby Johnson, Elizabeth Wright, Daisy May and Alicia. Well done to all the children who were so creative. I think Mr Goldsworthy needs to watch out!
