Our class motto

 

Welcome to Newton Class, home of Year 1 and 2. This year, our class teacher is Miss Whitfield and working with her is Mrs Thorpe; Mrs Rathmell will be teaching the children on Thursday afternoons. Here you'll find all the information you need to help your child progress, supporting the learning that goes on in class and also giving you a window into what they are doing through the year. 

English

We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils. The website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk shows lots of good choices for individual year groups. Each half-term, we teach English through a text-led approach, using a quality story to spark children's imagination. Our first text of the year is 'The Queen's Hat' by Steve Anthony, which links in with our 'By Royal Appointment' theme.

Maths

As a school, we follow the White Rose Maths schemes of learning; please find the overview for the year here, it will help you support your child in knowing what concepts are taught throughout the year.

TOPIC

Knowledge organisers

Here you'll find knowledge organisers, designed to help with vocabulary and concepts, related to our topics through the term.
