Welcome back to the final half-term of this school year!
We will be continuing with our superhero topic for the first couple of weeks so I look forward to seeing the children returning back to school ready to save their imaginary cities!
We will then be moving onto our final topic; come back in a couple of weeks to find out what it is!
Please continue to use the links provided on Fir Class' page to support your child at home with their phonics learning.
I look forward to seeing the children show the same amount of perseverance and commitment to learning as they displayed last term.

CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES!
Welcome back to the Summer Term!
Key Stage 1 has now become a superhero academy and we will be enrolling into the academy and becoming imaginary superheroes!.
In writing, we will be creating and designing our own superheroes, planning and creating adventures and showcasing them in the style of a comic! I can't wait to see what the children will decide for the characters! We will also be looking at the different senses and discussing how these senses will help our superheroes in tricky situations!
In P.E, we will be developing our key skills, linking to our Superhero topic in both gymnastics and athletics. In addition to this we will be linking our Science and P.E. through our understanding of the importance of exercise and looking at the effects on our body.
In Science and D&T, we will be looking at what is needed in a healthy diet, more specifically looking at the types of food we need, the right amounts and hygiene. This will feed into our design and creation of a healthy meal - fruit rocket kebabs, for our superhero. It is very important to keep our superhero healthy for all of the missions they will be sent on!
This is shaping up to be a really fun term and I cannot wait to see all of the children graduate the superhero academy!

Great Fire of London
Welcome back, I hope you have all had a lovely half-term holiday.
This half-term we will be exploring our new topic: The Great Fire of London.
Throughout this topic, we will be developing an awareness of the past, ordering the events of the fire, looking at the causes and exploring how the fire spread so quickly. We will also be looking at the similarities and differences between London in the 17th century and today including the houses and fire fighting techniques and equipment. Through drama and real-life experiences we will be able to produce some fantastic writing and further develop our understanding of this significant event in history.
In addition to this exciting topic work, we also have book week (6th March - 10th March) and Mrs Quinn assures us that it will be a fun-packed week!
I can't wait to see what you produce!
Dungeons and Dragons
Welcome back to the new year!
This term our topic will be 'Dungeons and Dragons'. The children seem excited to start learning about this and so far have explored different parts of a castle.
If you or your children have any books related to castles and dragons and would not mind the children having a look at them, please do not hesitate to bring them in.
Please could we request that children have their P.E kits in school all week.
Welcome back to the final half term of this calendar year. During this half term our learning will be focused around the book 'Beware of the Storybook Wolves' this book encompasses a range of traditional tales and fairy tales. From this we will be engaging in lots of exciting writing and creative learning opportunities including creating recipes for a wolf, creating characters, rewriting tales and performing in our new stage area.
Please see attached the learning that will be taking place across this term. Don't forget to have a look at the homework grid to decide what you will be making, creating, writing or showing for our end of term homework afternoon. 2 lucky winners will also receive a prize.
This half term P.E will be on Wednesdays and Fridays, however if access to the hall is restricted, P.E may be moved to another day so it is advised that children have their P.E kits in school from Monday to Friday.
To support your children at home, please continue to read frequently with them asking questions and filling in the sheets provided. Also, please continue to support your children in practising their spellings and handwriting on the sheets provided (putting words into dictation sentences may provide useful for those children who are secure in the reading and spelling of the words).
Furthermore, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, practising number facts and times tables facts are useful to develop your child's mathematical fluency. These can be off-the-cuff activities, prepared games or even singing along to youtube videos or CDs.
I look forward to this term and the wonderful work the children will inevitably create.
We would like to welcome all of the children to Key Stage One at the start of this new school year!
We have already had a fantastic start to the year, with Year 2 setting a fantastic example to the new Year 1 children. We are sure that they will continue to work brilliantly together throughout the year.
We were very excited to discover a parachute on our first day back and we have already started asking lots of questions about what happened. We are sure that this will lead to a lot more exciting discoveries and new opportunities to learn new things.
Please continue to use our class pages to keep up to date with all of our goings on in Key Stage One and any homework reminders.
We are all very excited for a fantastic first half term!
