​​​Welcome to Year 1 / 2

 

Hello and welcome to our class!

We are a mixed year 1 and 2 class who love learning. Our teachers are Mrs Cufley and Mrs Davies and our teaching assistant is Mrs Dunbar.

We like to learn using cross-curricular subjects. We have one topic per term and do lots of exciting activities! 

Our topic for the Autumn Term is     Towers and Turrets


 


                                                 

 Please use this page to learn more about us, and to access the websites that help our learning in class.

Homework 

Children in Year 1/2 are expected to read at home everyday. Please read the book your child brings home, ask them questions and make reading fun! 

Children in Year 1/2 have a Spelling Test every Friday. Spelling tests will always be based on the 'phonic focus' of the week.

Tests are marked with the children, with new spellings handed out directly following this. Please ensure that you help your child to learn their spellings.

 

  

 

 

We enjoy educational visits to different places, such as The Black Country Living Museum and The Kingsbury Waterpark.


 

Maths

We use lots of different resources to reach our potential.

We enjoy using our outdoor learning environment and we explore the Conservation Area as part of our maths lessons.

English

All of our learning is cross-curricular. Our English lessons are often based around a book related to our topic, such as Fantastic Mr Fox when we were learning about animals and Where the Wild Things Are when we were learning about rainforests. 

Science

Our science lessons are interesting and fun! They link to our topic, so we have designed a space suit for a bear, investigated the conditions needed to grow plants in the rainforest and compared different paw prints. We particularly enjoy investigating and exploring outside.
