Year 1 and Year 2

Happy New Year!

We hope you have had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas and New Year. January is already in full swing...we are keen to learn new things, show what we have remembered and are asking some excellent questions!


Our topic is called 'Polar Lands' and will continue until the end of the Spring Term. If your child has any ideas for our new topic, they can put them in our treasure chest. Our webpage is for sharing all the exciting things we could learn in our class as well as giving you and your family hints and tips to help support and extend your learning at home. 


Woodland Learning will continue on a Friday. It will continue to be a mixture of learning out on the Englefield Estate, in the pond area, class garden, Super Spot and Cookery Room. Woodland Learning will begin on Friday 17th January. If your family would like to help with Woodland Learning, speak to one of the Year 1/2 staff team or Mrs Frith (James' Mummy). Please make sure your children have a change of clothes just right for staying warm/keeping cool and possibly getting muddy.


If you're looking for different books to read, see how many stories, poems and information books you can read about polar lands. Why not visit our school or local library? 


P.E will still be on Mondays with Mr Chard (games outside) and with Mrs Carney on a Wednesday (gym or dance in the hall). Please bring your PE kit into school on a Monday and take it home for washing on a Friday. In order for your child to use the wall bars they must have shorts and a t shirt. Please make sure all your child's belongings are named, including their indoor and outdoor shoes. 


Thank-you for your support,

Mrs Carney, Mrs Newsome and Mrs Hough
