Jupiter Class Year 1 & 2

Welcome to Jupiter Class. Our class teachers are Mrs. Alison Lewis with Mrs. Jade Halpin (Tuesdays) supported by Mrs. Rachel Maddocks LSA.
Key stage 1 begins the children's journey into learning, so it's a very important two years!  We do lots of hands on, active leaning through our inspiring, progressive and creative curriculum. This is carefully designed and builds on the skills learnt in reception. We also work hard to engage with all subjects and prepare for the year 1 phonics screening test and the year 2 SATs.
Our topic for this Summer term will be 'Childhood in the 1960's'.
  • We will find out about toys, school life, music, TV and fashion from the 10960's, and learn about significant events.
  • We will design, build and evaluate our own 'wind-up' toys.
  • We will explore current computer games and compare these to ICT in the 1960's.
  • We will have a 'groovy' 1960's dress up day.
  • We will explore some famous children's stories that were written in the 1960's.
