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.
Please find below our class timetable and planning for Spring 2019
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 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!
Year 1 and 2 have been demonstrating their dancing skills in assembly this week. Parents, pupils and staff were amazed at the wonderful dancing. Huge thanks too to Mrs Battelley, who has been teaching the children their dance moves this term. Enjoy….
What a fabulous way to end the term, well done to everyone involved.
The whole school enjoyed celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday,with a tea party in the afternoon of June 10th, followed by an evening of entertainment. The school would like to thank everyone who donated cakes, helped organise the day and came and shared a lovely afternoon and evening of celebration. It was lovely to share the celebrations with parents, families and members of the local community and village.
