Welcome to Year 1/2


Autumn 2 

This half term we have been busy practicing our Christmas play and learning about life as a child in the 60s!


Growing up with Granny

We have been learning what childhood was like in the 60s! Mrs Kett and Mr Barrass shared their experiences of being children and we have learnt about school life and home life, even making our classroom into one from the past!



In English, we have been focusing on 'Talk for Writing' and writing a recount of our visit from the fire service! We have been learning about noun phrases and conjunction in Grammar and also write our own fact files on cats and owls!



We are continuing with Phase 5 phonics and the children have learnt: aw, wh, oy and ph!



This half term we have been learning about addition and subtraction. Y2 have been thinking about money and Y1 have been practicing shape!



We have been practicing our Gym skills alongside football and we have been astronauts in REAL PE.





Autumn 1 

This half term we have been busy settling into our new classes and starting our first exciting topic.


Amazing Animals

We have been learning where different animals come from in our Geography lessons and learning about all the different species of animals in Science. We have even been on an exciting school trip to the New Forest Wildlife Park!



In English, we have been focusing on 'Talk for Writing' and learning the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. 

We now know the story off by heart and have written the whole story over the last few weeks!

We are also writing a recount of our school trip to the New Forest Wildlife Park.



We have started learning the first sounds from our Phase 5 phonics. We now know ayouie and ea



This half term we have been learning about the place value of numbers and adding and subtracting.



We have been enjoying the chance to swim this half term and have been focusing on our breathing and kicking skills in the water.





Ralph the Reindeer


Year 1 and 2 have been very busy this term practicing our fantastic Christmas play... Ralph the Reindeer!


The story is all about growth mindset!

When Rudolph is too poorly to fly the sleigh, Ralph steps in to save the day! Although we soon find out that Ralph has difficulties of his own. With the help of each other and a positive mindset the reindeer find a solution just in time for Christmas!


We are so proud of all the hard work the children have put in. The Y2 children have all leaned their lines and acted brilliantly!

The Y1 children have learnt lots of songs and actions to make it a Christmas Extravaganza!


Well done KS1! What a great end to a busy term!






Since September, Year 1/2 have covered a wide range of learning opportunities:

Our topics this year have included: Where we Live, Remember Remember! (Guy Fawkes), Materials, Food Glorious Food, A Study of Beatrix Potter, United Kingdom, Explorers and Dragons and Castles.

Alongside these topics the children have explored aspects of Christianity and Judaism including visiting and comparing places of worship.

We have also taken part in a variety of sporting activities, such as REAL PE, Hockey, Cross Country, Gymnastics, Swimming and competed in a variety of competitions.

In addition to all of that, we have made puppets, weaved baskets, painted in the style of Kandinsky and made models using clay.

What a busy and exciting year we have had!
