WELCOME TO EC1!
Our class teacher is Miss Jarrett and we are a mixed-age class of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. We’ve settled into our new classroom very well and everyone is looking forward to doing lots of exciting learning this year.
Autumn Term 2 Topic
Our topic this term is SPACE INVADERS!
As part of our whole school ‘Time Detectives’ theme, EC1 will be journeying back in time to investigate ‘How did we put a man on the moon?’ in our new curriculum topic ‘Space Invaders’. We’ll be using our new mystery text to think about what it takes to become an astronaut and travel into space. By researching facts about the planets in our solar system as well as the great space race leading to the 1969 moon landing, we’ll consider the answer to our key question. From there, we will look at the achievements of Time Peake and today’s modern space missions. We’ll also consider whether it is actually humans who are the real Space Invaders and if we will ever find out the answer to the famous question, ‘Is there anybody out there?’
Our Class Routines
PE takes place with Mr Daldry on Mondays. Please make sure you have a named PE kit in school for these lessons.
Forest School is on Tuesdays with Mrs Monkhouse. We are really enjoying our outdoor learning so far. Again, please make sure that you have your Muddy Kit with you for these sessions.
Homework will be given out every Friday and needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday. Spellings will also be handed out on Friday to be tested on the following Friday. Our spelling words will link to the phonics sounds we have been learning over the week.
School milk is available for all pupils (under fives are free) but you will need to register your child at www.coolmilk.com.
Please feel free to pop in before/after school if you have any concerns or queries.
Miss Jarrett 😊
