Year 1 Planning for week beginning 18th March


It's the final week of the preparations for our play Skellybones. You should now have received the details of ticket availability and preparations for the day itself via letter or parent mail.

On the day, teachers and adults will walk all the children to Denbigh School, so you do not need to collect them from school at the end of the day.

EVERY child will need to bring in a packed tea so they will have something to eat between the end of school and the end of the performance. Please ensure that this tea is in completely disposable packaging so it can be thrown away when eaten. (Lunch arrangements are as usual).

In the run up to the performance itself, we will be performing Dress Rehearsals to the other classes in school and also any siblings who attend Loughton School, so we should be performance ready! We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Denbigh School Theatre on Thursday, for a 6.15 start.


Year 2 Planning for week beginning 18th March


As the children have been so excited about the unusual items on the back playground, we will continue to plan and write our own imaginary story. Ask children about their main character and where they have come from!

In Maths we will learn about weight and mass. The children will then begin to explore money. They will have the opportunity to look at real coins and understand each coins value. We will use different combinations of coins to make an amount and we will be solving problems that require the children to work out how much change will be given.

In phonics, the children will continue to build upon their understanding of spelling rules when adding a suffix. They will apply this skill to their writing.

Thank you to those that have brought back the consent slip for Warwick Castle. If you haven't yet done this please ensure you do this week as the trip is on Monday 25th March.Thank you.
