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 ‘Get out of my swamp!’ and then we will be looking at ‘Flights!’ We will be making the houses for ‘three little pigs’ using different materials. We will be designing, baking and decorating gingerbread men. We will be taking part in lots of Art projects to do with this project.

We are very excited to be taking part in ‘Samba’ this term for our Music topic. A qualified teacher comes in once a week to teach the children percussion skills.

In English we have looked at ‘Meerkat Mail’ and will be looking at information texts including ‘facts about Meerkats’. We will be writing our very own stories and fact files.

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 cricket. 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!
