Class F2 & Y1C


Autumn Term 2017

Welcome back!


We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new children and parents in to F2/YR1! We are excited about getting to know you all and have planned lots of exciting learning and activities for this term.

The topic for this term is ‘Marvelous Me’ and ‘Super Heroes’. We are going to begin by sharing pictures of ourselves from when we were a baby. Were you cute? Did you have chubby cheeks? You might even be able to see pictures of the staff!  We will also be learning about our five senses and how we use our senses for lots of different reasons.

We will be learning all about super heroes and their special powers. What Super Hero are you most like? What is your special power?

In Autumn 2 all the children will be taking part in a school nativity and parents will be invited to attend a Christmas craft morning. The children will be given the opportunity to enjoy a Panto visit.

 PE will be on Tuesday afternoons. Children are expected to bring their PE kit each week and leave it in school until the end of the week. Children will be given weekly homework and need to read at least five times a week to achieve the ‘In it to Win Reward’ half termly and at the end of the year the ‘Always Trip’.

We have an open door policy, if you wish to speak to us about anything then please do not hesitate to contact us. Please feel free to leave a comment for us at the bottom our page, where it will be gratefully received, thank you.

Any support, access to books, the internet and trips out will greatly enhance your child’s learning experience and engagement in the topics.  All seven areas of learning will be covered using this term's themes and following the children’s interests.

 Our Children investigated water as a liquid and a solid and found that this experiment is reversible in our Science lesson.

They used salt, sugar, warm water and cold water to see which melted the ice the quickest.

Some children used frozen water, salt and watercolours to create a rainbow. Understanding that salt can cause crevices in the ice and painting on watercolours that ran through the block of ice where the salt had melted it.

We used coloured ice cubes and mixed together two colours and to try to predict what colour the two together would create.

How can we release ‘frozen toys’ from containers? The children used warm water and different tools to release the toy from their ice tombs to see which was the most effective.

As you can see, the children had lots of fun with this experiments
