Welcome to our class page!
Our class teacher is Miss Amjad and we also have Miss Mothersole in with us to help us.
Our exciting topic this term is Turrets and Tiaras. We will be focusing on knights, castles and dragons.
We enjoyed our trip to Windsor Castle looking for our lost dragon as we walked around. We also got to learn lots about knights and even got to try on their special armour.
As part of our geography, we will make ourselves more aware of the world around us by watching the BBC Newsround and reading First News. This will support our speaking and listening skills as well as helping us gain knowledge by identifying countries, continents and oceans.
Please visit our page regularly to see what we are up to!
Our Christian value this half term is Thankfulness.
PE: Our PE days are Monday and Wednesdays Please practise getting changed at home so you can be super speedy in school!
Please ensure that the children have their PE kit in school every day as we try to keep the timetable flexible so that we can make the most of the weather and other opportunities to teach PE.
Star of the Week:

We are creating a raincoat for our dragon to use protecting him from British weather.
We are learning about the first castles that were made in the UK, developing our knowledge of William the Conqueror and the Battle of Hastings.
If your child reads at least four times a week for ten weeks throughout the term then they will receive a certificate which they can proudly show off. So please remember to write in the partnership book about the reading your child has been doing! Reading books will be changed if there is a note saying the child has finished their book. Your child may come home with three books towards the end of the week, this is so they can build their fluency and also have books to read over the weekend.
Maths homework is given fortnightly. The year 2's are focusing on multiples of 2, 5 and 10. The year 1's are focusing on number bonds to 10 this week.
TT Rockstar is an online maths activity that we have subscribed to and is to be used to develop fluency at home.
The children have been shown how to access the app and it should help the Year 2s to develop the fluency of 2s,5s and 10 times tables.
It may be a little tricky for the Year 1's at this moment in time but they will eventually be learning multiplication in which case it can be used at home. The logins are within the children's partnership books.
Spellings will now be sent home on a Monday, ready for a test the following Friday. We will be practising some of the spellings in school, but, as always, your support would be greatly appreciated with the practise of this. The spellings are usually put together from the phonics sounds the children are learning within school or spellings the children have found difficult within their writing through the week.
Each term the children are asked to complete one activity from a selection that is published at the beginning of term. This will allow you to share the children 's learning and hopefully complete a task together with your children. The deadline for this term is 16th December.
Here is a list of different websites which your child can visit if they wish to complete some extra practise at home in either maths, times tables, literacy or phonics. To follow a link, copy and paste it into the search bar.
