Venus – Year 1 & 2

Welcome to Venus class!

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

This half term we will be learning lots of new things. Our topic is ‘A Journey Through Europe.’ In this topic we will be travelling through Europe, tasting Italian food, visiting French landmarks and recreating famous German artworks.

In English we have started a great new text called ‘George and the Dragon’. We’ll be writing our own version of this story, changing different parts of the story to make it our own.

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. Our topics are Athletics and Basketball. 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!

Miss Hall
