Year 1 and 2 2018-2019


Hello and welcome to Year 1 and 2. I hope that you have had a great summer break and are ready for the new, exciting challenges that Year 1 and 2 have to offer.


The children have settled in really well this week to our wonderful new Key Stage 1 department and they have been working really hard to develop their growth mindset by trying lots of new challenges.


Please have a look at our class welcome letter and curriculum map for further information about our daily routines and what we will be learning this year.


If you have any questions please don't hesitate to come and speak to me at school.


I look forward to meeting you at our 'meet the teacher' meeting on Wednesday 12th September at 2.45pm. If you can't make the meeting I will post the information on this page.


Kind regards,

Mrs Talbot

Summer term

Nocturnal animals come to visit

This week Lyndsay from Animals Take Over came into school to show us some of her nocturnal animals. We met a millipede, a ferret, a tree frog, a field mouse, a scorpion, a tarantula and an owl. The children were very excited and also very brave, stroking and holding some of the animals.

This half term in year 2 we will be learning all about nocturnal animals. In our English lessons we are reading 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark' by Jill Tomlinson and we will be writing our own stories about another nocturnal animal.

In our topic lessons this half term we will be researching nocturnal animals and writing an information book about an animal of our choice. On the 10th May, in the afternoon, a lady from 'Animals Take Over' is bringing some nocturnal animals into school for us to look at.

We had fun dressing up on World Book Day.

Autumn term

We have learned about the Great Fire of London. We made models of houses and then we burned them down on the playground to re-enact the fire.
