Welcome to Rockies Class


Monday and Tuesdays we are taught by Ms Poole and the rest of the week by Mrs Nightingale. Mrs Clements and Miss Boulton are our wonderful teaching assistants.

A big welcome to our new Teaching Assistant, Miss Ackland. She will be working with us every morning. 

This half term we will be focusing on improving our sentences by writing a range of different texts and counting numbers to 50 in Year 1, while our Year 2's will be building on their knowledge of repeated addtion to learn how to muliply and divide. In writing they will be learning about different types of sentences and how to edit their work to appeal to the reader. 

Homework is sent out each Wednesday and due in on a Monday, this will alternate between Maths and English each week. Spellings are set each Thursday and checked the following Thursday. Reading is very much encouraged every day, the children will have an opportunity to read and change books daily. 

In Science we will continue to learn about materials. Our new topic is 'Life on the Farm', looking in particular at the different types of farm, features of a farm and how farms are different from towns. Look out for photos from our trip to Sandfield Farm coming soon!

We have made a fact sheet that was handed out at the start of the topic detailing what we will be learning.

Topic Fact Sheets can be viewed here:

We have lots of specialist teachers in our team this year, Coach Catherine from P and E Sports will be teaching gymnastics on a Monday afternoon and Madame Nedia will be teaching us French on a Wednesday. 

Year 1's will be enjoying forest school with Miss Boulton, so will need to remember their outside clothes and boots on a Thursday.
