Fantastic Frant

This term we will be finding out all about our local village. Beginning with a field study, we will then learn geographical and historical facts about Frant, including where the name came from and how it has changed over the years. If any parents have any facts to share then please do let Mrs Elliott know. 

At the start of the term we have also been marking Remembrance Sunday by creating this beautiful display. He is lifesize, and  with every poppy that we have made it has helped us to understand the sacrifices that people have made for us. 

We will also be sharing the delightful text 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers - as we lose ourselves in our imaginations and find adjectives, adverbs and prepositions along the way! We will continue to improve our sentence structure with a good focus on introducing speech - first into comic strips and then as written dialogue. 

Maths begins with work on shape and space, then addition and subtraction for Year 1, whereas the Year 2s will be learning their times tables. 

This term we will also be beginning to practise our the nativity... as it is only 8 weeks (56 days... 1,344 hours... 80,640 minutes....) until Christmas!

Class expectations

Please make sure that your child's clothes are all named (including PE kits).

Please provide your child with a water bottle every day.

Please send your child's reading record (keep with the books in the wallet provided) to school every day.

Please remember to read with your child every day and record this in their reading record. Reading at home is essential to learning and accessing all that is on offer at school.

With your support at home, we are aiming to make your child;

- an independent learner

- a good listener using their eyes and ears

- responsible for changing their books, keeping the classroom tidy and looking after their PE kit/uniform

—If you or your child is unhappy with something in class/school please come and speak to us straight away. In this way we can support your child in the best way possible.

Thank you for your support.
