Monkeys Planning for week beginning 21 May

Our last week of the half term is again a very busy week!

On Monday we will be celebrating the royal wedding with lots of fun activities. We will be making crowns, masks, puppets and invitations.

On Tuesday we will be holding a Stay and Play session when you can see how we develop the children's learning in the curriculum area of Expressive Arts and Design.

On Thursday we will be holding Pirate Day. We are asking please that the children come dressed as pirates. Please don't go to any expense, a stripy t-shirt and jeans will be great. If your child brings any pirate accessories please make sure they are clearly named.

On Friday the children will be having an end of term treat with a visit to Loughton pirate park.

Please can all children bring an egg box to school on Monday so we can make treasure chests. We would be grateful for any extras too please.

We will be breaking up for half term on Friday 25th May and returning on Tuesday 5th June.

Year 1 Planning for week beginning 21 May

As we approach the last week of term we are hoping the weather holds out so that we can continue doing lots of our learning outdoors which has now included PE.

In Maths we are extending our understanding of groups and arrays and how to solve multiplication sentences.

In English we are focusing on grammar; adding suffixes to adjectives and learning the rules for making plural nouns.

In Topic, it's our last week exploring the signs of Spring in and around our school area so we will be checking our knowledge of flowers and trees before moving on to animals next term.


Year 2 Planning for week beginning 21 May

A huge thank you to everyone that supported our May Fayre on Saturday, we hope you had a lovely time.

This week we will be completing the last of our 'special work'. In English lessons we will be continuing to read The Twits by Roald Dahl. We will focus on the appearance and personalities of the main characters using evidence from the text to justify our descriptions.

Over the last two weeks the children have learnt about the parts of a flower and their functions. This week we will move onto learning about pollination and the importance of bees.

In Maths we will be learning through investigative tasks. The children will be working practically to solve problems and deepen their understanding.
