Welcome to Haughmond Class

We are a class of Year 1 and 2 pupils. Our teachers are Mrs Gregory Tuesday to Friday Miss Lloyd-Jones on a Monday. Our teaching assistants are Ms Jones and Mrs Oxford.

We’ve got lots of exciting things planned this term to help our learning about our new topics – Where shall I go on holiday?

Our main focus is going to be developing our geographical skills as we look at an area of Wales, Llandudno, with a contrasting locality in Kenya, the Maasai Mara. We are going to be using a range of aerial plans and maps to explore the geography of the places, as well as looking at the physical and human features, who lives there, the climate and tourism.

Our science foci this term are plants and animals. We will be exploring a range of plants along with planting seeds ourselves and monitoring their growth. After half term we will find out about animal lifecycles and have the opportunity to observe the growth and development of caterpillars and ladybirds, as well as our baby axolotl, Alex. Throughout the year we will also be carrying out a study on local habitats, and to support this we have some visits planned to Forest School.

In Art we will be refining our drawing techniques, learning about the lives and works of L.S. Lowry and Alexandra Pullen. DT will see us designing and making a coleslaw for the Trinity Picnic (more details about this will come soon).

Our P.E. days this term are Friday with Mrs Gregory, where we will learn cricket and rounders skills and athletics on a  Thursday with Mr Bevan. Please send your children into school wearing their P.E. kit on these days. If your child wears earrings, please take them out, or cover them, on these days

Homework is set on a Friday and will usually consist of a Reading Eggs activity which can be accessed through the link below. Please also practice the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, for which your child has a Times Tables Rockstars login, and listen to them read throughout the week. There may also be additional pieces of homework for you to complete with your child related to our learning in class, or Picture News.

To find out more about the focus in our areas of learning this term, our subject knowledge organisers and topic web are available at the below link.
