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: Tuesdays and Wednedays; please attend school in your PE kits on these days.

This Term we are learning about "Africa". We will be looking at life in the continent through exploring schools, city and village life. As well as drawing comparisons with their own experiences. They will learn about the range of animals and climate. They will also learn about the significant life of Nelson Mandela.

We are looking at stories from different cultures including 'Handa's Hen' and 'Handa's Surprise' by Eileen Browne. We will also be exploring instructions and exclamations through 'Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus' by Mo Willems. Our class texts are: 'Meercat mail', 'Where the Wild things are', 'Amazing Grace', 'Lost and Found' and 'Tiger Walk'.  

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.
