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 Norman and Mrs Hooper 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 morning the children have outdoor learning which is led by Mr Ball. Our Library slot is a Tuesday at 11.25am, where the children have a chance to pick a new book to take home and read with you.
Our new topic this term is ‘Oh it’s cold outside’. A lovely Christmas topic for the children to become involved with. The children will be learning about the famous event of Bonfire Night and why we celebrate it and having a look into who Guy Fawkes was and his famous Gun Powder Plot!
Within our literacy learning, the children will be looking at books such as ‘One Snowy Night, The Jolly Christmas Postman and The Snowman and The Snow Dog’. Based on these books, the children will be writing letters, setting descriptions, and writing instructions on how to keep safe around fireworks and some fact sheets about Guy Fawkes. Within guided reading, we will be looking at a whole class guided reading approach this half term to support the children’s comprehension skills, by looking at books linked with their topic.
