Year 1/2 - Turtle class

Spellings WC 21st October 2019

You will now find these on the back of the math homework






WC 14th October 2019

It is our Innovate week here at school and the children have been working hard on a Design and Technology project. Next week we have our Topic Showcase (Thursday 24th October 2019 at 14:15) and the children will reveal their creations to you then!


In maths we are learning about addition using part-whole models to further develop their understanding. In science we continue to consider properties of materials and their suitability.


The children are encouraged to change their reading books independently during the week. If your child is forgetting to change it then please let us know and we could support them with this. You're always welcome to come in at the end of the day and change it together.












Turtle's STAR OF THE WEEK is

Well done!


In Friday Worship one child is selected from each class as our star of the week.

During the week this child has demonstrated something that has WOWED their teachers!

The St Andrew's Way - 1, 2, 3 star

Week Commencing 2nd and 9th September 2019


Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely summer holiday. Our first day back was very exciting as we shared our summer experiences and we welcomed some new faces to our class.


Over the next 2 weeks, we are investing some time in getting to know your children as we believe that positive relationships are crucial in achieving well at school. We will also use this time to reinforce our expectations, develop school routines and assess the children's prior knowledge.


Next Thursday (12th September), we will be hosting a family meeting after school at 3:15 in Turtle class. The meeting is not appropriate for children so we will provide a supervised creche for the children. It is a short meeting but we will share information around timetables, our curriculum and how families can support learning at home. Please don't fret if you are unable to attend. Your child's class teacher will be happy to discuss this with you at a different, mutually convenient time and we will upload all the information to our class pages on this website.


Thank you.

Autumn One - Moon Zoom!



We are very excited that our topic for Autumn One is Moon Zoom! On our impact day we will dress up as astronauts (date and information to follow in September) and we’ll travel through space to learn about the Solar System. Books and photographs will help us to learn about the first lunar landing and the astronauts who venture into space. We will be reading fiction stories and considering adverts and how we might convince people to travel to the moon!



Moon Zoom book list: if you have any of these books, and we can borrow it, please let us know!
