Venus – Year 1 & 2

My name is Miss Leane and I am your child’s class teacher. We also have Miss Marshall in our class helping your child with their learning.

This year we will be looking at lots of exciting topics. Our topic this term is ‘The Great Fire of London!’  We will be researching this event and creating a Timeline from Then and Now. As part of our DT project we will be making houses from Then and Now so we can discuss why houses are safer today.

We will be learning lots of new songs as part of our Charanga scheme and using our classroom instruments to go alongside this.

In English our story is ‘Monkey see, monkey do’. We have learnt this story and will be creating our own versions of the story.

In Maths, we will be practising all the different number skills we have learnt so far this year. This includes counting forwards and backwards and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

We have fruit time before break time every day. Please ensure children have a water bottle. If they do not, these can be purchased at the office for £1. 

A few helpful reminders:

We have PE twice a week, one of these sessions being gymnastics. Children must have their PE kit for both days – Tuesday and Thursday.

Children must read and have their reading record signed every night.

Homework is due in on Wednesday. I will mark it and return it on Thursday with the next week’s homework.

Thank-you for your ongoing support!​
