Happy Easter! 

We've had an exciting and busy week! Upon finishing their planning the children have made their own wooden aeroplanes  which look fantastic, the children have done an excellent job as always. 

We enjoyed our trip to Kirklees Light Railway and the children demonstrated lovely learning behaviours and enthusiasm, everyone has been so proud of them, including myself! 

I hope you all have a lovely half term and I cant wait to hear all about it.

Welcome to the 1/2 class page. Take a look at what we have been learning and let us know what you think.

The children have been settling in to our new groupings the past two weeks. I have enjoyed getting to know the children and extremely impressed with how well they have settled and the outcomes of their work already! 

In Maths this week we have been learning how to solve addition and subtraction word problems through using pictures, blocks and drawings, they all did some great work and were all able to solve some tricky word problems!

In literacy we have been writing a letter to Tim Peake to suggest what he should take to space with him. The children though of some great ideas and produced some brilliant pieces of writing!

Welcome to Class 1/ 2. I hope you have all had a good summer!

We have been settling in to our classroom, our new routines and getting to know each other. We are enjoying our new topic which is inspired by the  book One Day on our Blue Planet by Ella Bailey. This book is about a lion cub's day. We have all made suggestions about what we would like to learn and these ideas have been included on the curriculum overview issued on Friday 14 September.


We have also decided our class identity is to be The Marvellous Meerkats so we have been finding out about meerkats too! Watch out for a meerkat display appearing in our classroom soon.


Thank you for your patience at the end of the day as I try to get to know who everyone is and thankyou to the parents who have introduced themselves to me and made me feel welcome.
