Welcome to Year 1 & 2
Mrs Mosedale, Mrs Corley, Mrs Sluce and Miss Goodwin welcome you to our Year 1 & 2 page.
It has been a short half term but such a busy one! The Year 2 children did us proud during their 'Secret Agent Training' and really worked hard on their different challenges. The Year 1 children were also fantastic during this time. As a reward, the Year 2 children enjoyed watching a film together. The Year 1 children also enjoyed an afternoon of playing games.
After that, some of the Year 2 children went on their trip to Beaumanor Hall. We all had a great time (children and staff included) and the children enjoyed taking part in lots of different outdoor activities.
Our current topic is...
Wriggle and Crawl
SATs Meeting Powerpoint
Here is the Powerpoint that we shared with parents at the meetings regarding Year 2 SATs. After Easter, we are going to refer to them as part of a Secret Agent Training Programme. If you have any questions about the Year 2 SATs, please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher or Mrs Mosedale.

We have started our new topic by reading the story of Hansel and Gretel. The children have acted it out and have used their imaginations to describe their own characters.
In Science, we have started to look at different habitats and the animals who live in them. The children have also enjoyed exploring the new topic areas in their classroom. They have used natural materials such as wood, twigs, leaves and petals to create fantastic woodland scenes for fairies and woodland animals.
Bella Italia Creative Homework
We were blown away by the amazing projects that the children brought in. Thank you so much for your support.
The children are currently practising their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and every Wednesday afternoon they are challenged to see how many they can recall in a set amount of time. Rock music is also played in the background to spur the children on!
Here are a couple of links to some active songs from the BBC Sport website to help your child to learn their times tables and keep them moving at the same time!

Our last topic was Bright Lights, Big City. 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.
