Year 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 1 & 2


Mrs Owen, Mrs Corley, Mrs Sluce and Mrs Mosedale welcome you to our Year 1 & 2 page.


Our current topic is...

Bright Lights, Big City

This topic, based on our capital city of London, is well underway.  In our English lessons, we started off by writing a diary entry for Paddington Bear as he arrived in London for the first time.

After that, the children started to learn about the Great Fire of London and wrote their own diary entries like Samuel Pepys.

Here are some examples of the written work that the children have completed so far this term.

These are our topic areas for our new topic.

Our last topic was...Memory Box!


To accompany the topic, we read the book Dogger by Shirley Hughes.

The children enjoyed acting out scenes from the story and designing their own Lost posters.

We were so impressed with the amazing homework for our Moon Zoom topic.  

Here are a few photos of the fantastic rockets, UFOs, Solar Systems and even astronaut's backpacks that were made.
