Wonwell Class (Years 1 & 2)
Welcome to Wonwell class!
We have a mix of Year One and Year Two children who love to learn and work alongside each other brilliantly. Our teachers are Mr Rickard and Miss Morgan. We like to bring learning to life by using our amazing outdoor environment as much as possible. We learn through various topics throughout the year which means that our learning is always placed within a meaningful context.
Our topics this year are:
Autumn Term 2021: Childhood (history topic)
Spring Term 2022: Bright Lights, Big Cities (geography topic)
Summer Term 2022: School Days (history topic)
Other details about our class:
Forest Schools – this is taught every fortnight on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure children come to school already in their forest school clothes.
PE – Friday is our main PE day. Please ensure children come to school already dressed in PE kit.
Homework – homework is posted on our Showbie platform. A topic overview is given which engages children with some home learning activities. Homework is celebrated in class – please send it in with your child when they have completed a task or upload it onto Showbie. MyMaths homework is also given each week and can be found uploaded on the MyMaths platform for which your child will have an individual login and password.
Spellings - these are issued every Friday and tested the following Friday. These can be found on Showbie.
Phonics - We use the Read Write Inc scheme for our phonics teaching which is a highly interactive and proven scheme. Children learn various sounds each week and enjoy reading and writing about the class book.
Reading- Our reading books match the phonics being taught and children will come home with books each and every week. They may also come home with some free reading books to help stimulate their love of reading.
