Welcome to Foxes

We are the Year 1 and 2 class with Miss Aldous, Mrs Smith and Mrs Nott.

Wednesdays are enriched with French by Madame Kernick, P.E with Mrs Ranson and Science, PSHE, R.E and Music with Mrs Jones and Mrs Stamper. 

You can follow our learning journey by visiting our class blog at: 

Our PE days are: Wednesdays and Fridays; please attend school in your PE kits on these days. 

This term we are continuing to learn about "Tiarras and Turrets". In term 5, we focused on the British monarchs. In term 6, we are exploring castles and knights. 

We are focusing on non-fiction in English through Information texts- The children will learn about information texts and their features. They will use information texts to ask questions about a topic and to find an answer. They will make a class glossary of topic words. The children will begin to think about how to group their information into headings, sub headings or paragraphs. They will produce their own information page about Knights and Castles.

The writers will also explore classic poetry through The Owl and The Pussycat and tradition rhymes.

Our class texts are: Cops and Robbers, Sony Sharma very big sister, Great Women who saved the planet and Charlie and the Chocolate factory.

You can find out more about our term ahead by reading our Curriculum Newsletter below. 

We follow Read, Write, Inc to teach Phonics. The sounds make a huge difference in supporting your child to read. 

There is more information about the expectations for Phonics and Year 2 reading, writing and maths in the KS1 Phonics and SATS information powerpoint below.

Here is a video to help demonstrate the different sounds that the children are learning: 

 To introduce ourselves, Miss Aldous and Mrs Smith have recorded a story to share with you.
