Welcome to the Year 1/2 information page.
Read about what we have been doing so far.



Our topic is... Come Outside!

Friday 20th September

Next week, we will be reading our whole school book Only One You by Linda Kranz. The book focuses on the idea that everyone is special. Each child will paint a stone which will be collected and used to form a pathway to celebrate that our school is made up of unique individuals.

In P.E, we have enjoyed playing hockey! We learnt how to hold the hockey stick correctly and how to dribble with a ball. 


In science, we are investigating what a flower needs to grow. We have planted cress seeds in pots but they have been given different conditions to see who grows the strongest and biggest. 


Plant 1-  water and light.

Plant 2-  water but no light.

Plant 3-  light but no water.

Plant 4- no water and no light. 


Which plant does your child think will grow big and strong?

Next week, we will continue to read The Bog Baby. We will be planning and producing a Bog Baby's Spotters Guide, containing useful hints and tips.


In science, we will be carrying out class investigations. We are investigating what a plant needs to grow strong and healthy. 


In geography, we will be using aerial photographs of our school to spot human and physical features.

Week beginning 9.9.19

This week, we have enjoyed taking our learning outside. In Science, we looked closely at plants and trees in our school and sketched them. 

In English, we have enjoyed writing sentences containing verbs to say what the Bog Baby was doing. 

Today, Green class were shocked to find Barney not sitting on his Star of the Week chair! Luckily, we found a letter containing clues. We used our geography skills to solve the mystery. We are happy to announce he is now safely back where he belongs. 

Friday 6th September

In English, we will read our new text called The Bog Baby. We will describe the characters based on the evidence in the text. 


In Geography, we will go on a hunt around our school grounds to find our class bears. We will use our observational skills to find out more about our school environment.
