Years 1 & 2
In Starfish class, our teacher is Miss Bruce.
On a Tuesday afternoon we are taught by Mrs Edwards.
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Olivier.
This half term, our topic is ‘Chocolate' which is based around the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We will be learning about where chocolate comes from and how it is made. We will be designing our own chocolate bars, tasting chocolate and even making some of our own!
In science, our topic is 'Everyday Materials'. We will be finding out what objects are made from, sorting materials and deciding which ones would be best for different purposes; such as what material would be best to wrap a chocolate bar!
We will also be trying super hard every day to make sure we make lots of progress with our reading, writing and maths skills!
In the autumn term, Starfish P.E days will be on a Monday and a Wednesday however it is always best if P.E kits are kept in school all week just in case of last minute timetable changes.
Year 1 - Children will receive a set of spellings on a Wednesday that they will need to practice at home for the following Tuesday, these will be in a green book. Children should also continue to practice reading at home frequently.
Year 2 - In addition to the above, Year 2 children will receive a piece of maths homework each week on a Wednesday which is due back in school on the following Monday.
Please ask Miss Bruce if you have any further questions.
