'The Best We Can Be'

Squirrel Class Year One & Two

Welcome to Squirrel Class!

Teacher: Mrs Sharpe


Support Staff:   Mrs Andrew and Mrs Stephenson


Key Information




Reading is a core aspect of the school curriculum. We ask that our children read to an adult at home regularly each week. Please record your child’s daily reading in their reading diary so that we can see how they are getting on. When they have read their book twice, then please encourage them to put it in the basket so that it can be changed.


It is important for the children to bring in their reading folder each day so that they are able to read to an adult in school.




Tuesday with Mrs Sharpe

Thursday with our PE Coach


Children are welcome to come to school on these days wearing their school PE kit. Please make sure that jumpers have been labelled with their names.




 Each term there will be 9 activities (3 Maths, 3 English and 3 Topic based activities) to choose from. We would like your child to complete one activity each week. By providing a range of tasks, we hope that you will be able to pick something each week which your child will find engaging as well as at the same time supporting their learning.  Homework books are to be handed in on a Monday each week and will be returned to your child on a Wednesday.

The Big Question - 

 What did Mary Anning discover about the past?


We use the big question as a focus for our planning each lesson, so that the children have the opportunity to gain information to help them to answer it throughout the term.


The topics we will be covering in Maths are: time, measures and problem solving. In English we will be looking at the following books. 



In History we will be learning about the life and work of Mary Anning and how her work has helped us to understand the past. In Science we will be thinking about how we use our senses to discover the world around us and looking at the habitats of rock pools. We also have planned an exciting science day – The Great Science Share this term. In Art we will be making clay sculptures and practicing our drawing skills. For PSHE we will be thinking about how we can keep our bodies and minds healthy. In RE we will be thinking about sacred spaces from different religions. In Music we will be singing sea shanties – I can’t wait to get started!!
