Venus – Year 1 & 2


Welcome to Venus Class!

My name is Miss Daniels and I am your child’s class teacher. This year is an exciting and busy year for us and we are all so excited to get started.

 This term we will be focusing on two engaging and exciting topics: France and London Burning. Within France, we will be looking at the continents of the World, locating France on a map and the key features of France. In London Burning we will be focusing on comparing London in the past to now, locating London on a map and the events of the Great Fire of London.

 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, we are following a new scheme called PM writing. We are looking at recounts, narratives, information reports. Our guided reading stories this half term are: Goldilocks and the three bears, The enormous turnip and Jack and the beanstalk.  

 In Maths, we will be practicing a range of skills including multiplication and division, shape and money. We will also practice these skills for homework which will be available on Mathletics each week – to access this, you will find your child’s username and password in their reading records. Please continue practicing saying your 2,5 and 10 times tables and telling the time.

 Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school each week. They will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed and returned to school.  Our PE day is a Wednesday.

 Children must read each night and their reading record should be signed by an adult each day.

 A spelling test will be done on Thursday for the spellings that have been set on the previous week’s homework.

 Please ensure your child has a school water bottle which can be purchased at the office for £1.

Children will receive a piece of fruit each day at break time.

 Thank-you for your ongoing support! We all really appreciate it.
