Yr 1/2 Miss Discombe
Welcome to Year 1 and 2. I am Miss Discombe the class teacher. Within KS1, we have the help of Mrs Hooper and Mrs Norman who help and support children with all stages of their learning. On Monday afternoons, the children have their PE lessons led by Mrs Henry and on Thursday mornings, the children have outdoor learning which is led by Mr Ball. Our library slot is on a Tuesday, where the children have a chance to pick a new book to take home and read with you.
Our new topic this term is “Dinosaurs!” The children will be learning about a famous scientist called Mary Anning and finding out lots of historical information based on how dinosaurs lived along with looking at different types of dinosaur fossils. The children will be writing a fact-file based on the information they have found out.
Within our literacy learning, the children will be looking at the books “Dear Dinosaur” and “Stone girl, Bone girl” to write letters and write their own version of a story. Within whole class guided reading, we will be looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts and poems based on the topic of dinosaurs to support the children’s comprehension with a range of retrieval and inference questions.
