Key Information for Parents and Carers
  • This half term (Spring 2) our P.E days are a Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Children must read at least 4 times each week to be green. This contributes to their green time each Friday. Reading is to be recorded on 'boom read' using the codes sent home with the children so they can be monitored throughout the week. 
  • Reading books are to be brought into school each Friday so they can be changed.
  • Each week Children will bring home the new phonics sounds they have learned, as well as being set phonics videos to watch and practise at home.
  • Children's learning and regular updates will be updated onto Seesaw also. 
Spring 2 Curriculum Map
Please see the attached document to find out what Year 1 and 2 are learning this half term! 
Forest School
On a Tuesday afternoon we have the opportunity to spend time learning in our on-site Forest School which we love. We love being outdoors, playing in the mud kitchen, making potions and being inquisitive. Take a look at some of our photos below. 
In October we had a wonderful day at Broxfield Farm. We spent the day looking at the cows, the farm environment, crops and we even had a ride on the tractor! 
Pizza Express
We enjoyed a fantastic morning at the Metrocentre. We visited Pizza Express and took part in an exciting workshop, making our own pizzas from scratch before taking them back to school to eat for our lunch. 
We had a look around the Metrocentre, thinking about why people use it before visiting a famous local landmark on the way home- The Angel of the North! We were so excited to finally see it as we have been learning a lot about it.
