Welcome back after the Easter holiday. Please remember to have a full PE kit in school every week.

Welcome to Class 3 

 (Year 1 and Year 2) 

Miss Errington and Mrs Patterson

Home and Away 

This term's theme is 'Home and Away'. 

Literacy and Phonics 

The children will all access a daily RWI phonics/spelling and guided reading session.  This half term we will be concentrating on making our writing interesting by using powerful verbs and adjectives. The children are going to write a new story based on the structure of ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’. They will also write a diary entry about their trip to Lyme Park. 

We will also continue to develop comprehension, spelling and handwriting skills.



The children will be using maps to name and locate the continents and oceans of the world. They will be looking at where we live as well as countries around the world.


The children will be studying aboriginal art and creating their own aboriginal animal picture.



In Science the children will explore the school field and carry out surveys to find, identify and name the various plants which grow there. They will also look closely at the different plants and birds, to compare, sort and classify them into groups by observed criteria.


Our PE lessons will focus on a games unit. This will include the use and development of throwing and catching skills. The children will be working in teams, promoting the importance of working                      co-operatively.


This half term the children will be listening to and appraising Reggae and Rock music. They will then learn ‘The Friendship Song’ and ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams.


Our computing unit this term is called ‘We are Astronauts’. We will learn to create algorithms using “Scratch”.

Religious Education 

In our R.E unit “How should we care for others and the world and why does it matter?” the children will recognise that some people believe God created the world and so we should look after it.


Our PSHE unit is all about how to keep fit and healthy.  The children will be learning about how different active playground games make them feel.


In Maths  lessons this term, we will be focusing on finding fractions of shapes and numbers.


This website has many games to support learning at home - 


Throughout the year the children will be practising to count accurately up to 100, being fluent with number bonds to 10 and 20 and their number formation. It will be very much appreciated, if at home practice takes place to ensure numbers are formed correctly.
