This page is for our Early Years, Year 1 and Year 2 children who make up the infants class. We will be putting regular updates on here showing what the children are doing throughout the year.
Our reception children have been recognising and continuing patterns in maths. Year 1 have been sorting shapes and other items into Venn diagrams and explaining the reasons for putting shapes where they did.
Maths through football
Soccer Academy have been in to school again to teach the children football skills. They then completed a football quiz based on maths skills
The children enjoyed bringing their pets in to school and seeing other children's pets. They talked about what their pet eats, how they exercise, what they do for fun and where they sleep. The childen enjoyed telling each other fun things about their pets too. Thank you to all those who brought your pets in.
Seasons and the weather
Throughout the year the children will be looking at the seasons, changes that happen in the environment and the changes in the weather. They will be looking at how light or dark it is when they get up and go to bed.
In order to understand more about the weather, they made windy weather toys then took them outside to see how windy it was and which way the wind was blowing.
Learning through play
Our new reception children have settled in really well. They have been having great fun learning through play inside and outside.
Roald Dahl Day
The children loved dressing up as Roald Dahl characters and bringing along props for their character. There was lots of different characters.
Year 1 and 2 parents, we ask that you hear your child read a little every day and talk to them about the book.
Reception children will have a book with no words that they can tell a story about. They will also have sound cards to bring home. Please encourage them to say the sounds the letters make. They can also be used to make simple words with. If you would like more information about these please speak to us.
All children are encouraged to count objects around them and look at numbers they may see in their environment.
Reception children have brought home letters about 'wow' moments. Please feel free to share anything your child has done that they or you are proud of, no matter how small it seems, on the slips sent home. If you would like more slips they are located on the window inside the classroom door.
Year 1 and 2 children will bring spellings home each Monday and the will be tested on these each Friday. Please try to go through these with your child throughout the week.
Homework is sent each Friday and is due in the following Monday. If your child is struggling with their homework please let us know.
please ask us the phonics phase your child is working in
