Current Staffing Information
Our two Year 1 classes are taught by Miss Linger (1L) and Mrs Cousins & Miss Finn (1C)
Year 1 are supported by Miss Neale and Mrs Stainthorpe.
Our two Year 2 classes are taught by Mr Charnock (2C) and Miss Rush (2R)
Year 2 are supported by Mrs McLean and Miss Begum.
The topic in Year 1 this half term is called “All about me”. The children will be writing descriptions of themselves and their family members. This will eventually lead into the children preparing questions so that they can interview members of their family. In Maths, the children are currently focusing on their 2s, 5s and 10s times tables and learning a range of multiplication facts. The children will then begin their work on weight, mass and measure. In Geography, the children will be focusing on the area they live in and in History, the children will use their knowledge of their families to create family trees. The Science focus in Year 1 this half term will be plants.
In Year 2 the focus will be “Pirates”. In History, the children will be learning all about the “Golden Age” of piracy and will be finding out about the different kinds of pirate ships. In Geography, we will be researching how pirates used maps and compasses to navigate. Our English work will link strongly to this topic, as the children will be creating a set of instructions for making a pirate sandwich. Additionally, remaining with English, our focus text this half term will be,
“A new Home for a Pirate”, which the children will change and re-write. The Art work in Year 2 this half term will be focusing on the artist “Georgia O’ Keefe” and in Science, we will be learning all about plants.
