Welcome! We are Fallow Class and we are Y1 and Y2 pupils

Dear Fallow Class Children, Parents and Carers,

Happy New Year! We are looking forward to an exciting Spring term in Fallow class where our learning will be based around the theme of “Whatever the weather”. Please do take a look at the topic web to see the different areas of learning that the children will explore and how we will be making links across the curriculum in our writing, science, knowledge of the world and creativity.

Mrs Marchment will be teaching on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Lambert on Thursdays and Fridays. Routines will continue as previously with PE on Tuesday afternoons and book changing taking place on Mondays for Year 1s and Tuesday for Year 2s.
Please continue to support your child with reading – a short daily read is essential to children becoming fluent and confident and underpins every aspect of their development. Ask questions about what they have read such as whether they like a particular character, which words help describe something to them. This makes a huge difference to their ability to comprehend texts in addition to mastering the mechanics of reading.

In Maths we will work on number knowledge and counting as a daily warm up. Challenge your child to know their number bonds (to 20 now in year 1 and to 100 in year 2.) Children in year 2 also need to be able to count in 2’s, 10’s and 5’s. In Year 1, we will be working on our understanding of place value, addition and subtraction within 20. In Year 2, we will be working on money and multiplication and division. The whole class will also be exploring measurements for length, height, mass and volume using many fun, practical applications for these.
Our topic lesson will be full of geographical knowledge about the continents, oceans, North and South Poles and placing these on maps as well as thinking about contrasting weather across the globe.

In Science, we will be working on classification of humans and animals, looking at how animals can be grouped in a range of ways such as mammals or omnivores to name but a few.

Our RE in this first term is going to be “blocked” as all the Year 1 and 2 children will be working together on the Judaism unit thinking about the importance of Hanukkah to Jewish children.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy term!

With best regards,

Mrs Lambert and Mrs Marchment.
