SPRING TERM 2021
🍎Happy New Year Dosbath Apple🍎
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday and are safe and well. Normally it would be the start of our Spring Term but,unfortunately we will not be able to be in school for a while so we will be switching to remote learning from January 6th. All learning will be done on Google Classroom. The children took their passwords home before Christmas. If you have any problems logging in there is a short tutorial on the school website in the Parents section under Home Schooling Help.Work completed can be turned in on Google Classroom or done on paper and brought back into school when we return. It is important that all children try to engage as much as possible .
Any corncerns or questions please email me . My email address is email@example.com
Our topic this term is
We will be taking a ginormous step back to the time of the Dinosaurs!
We will become 🔎 Dinosaur Detectives 🔍 and discover lots of interesting facts about where and when Dinosaurs lived, and what they ate. We will be undertaking investigations - just like paleantologists. We will also be learning their names and how to say them.
Week 6- Home Learning
This week was the beginning of the Chinese New Year.
2021 is the Year of the Ox.
Dosbarth Apple made Chinese lanterns, rattle drums and a 3D model of an Ox .
We used the story of how the years in China were named after 12 animals who had a race across a river, to practise using ordinal numbers.
We also practiced writing our names in Chinese.
Week 5 Home Learning
This week was Children’s Mental Health Week.
We based all our work on the lovely story The Worrysaurus
Some examples of the great work done by Dosbarth Apple 🍎 this week.

Week 3 Home Learning

Week 2 - Home Learning
This week in maths we continued with subtraction and worked on how it links to addition.
We used ‘wh’ words to write questions and thought of questions we could ask about dinosaurs to start our topic.
We listened to the story of Harry and the Bucketful of Dinisaurs, wrote a book review, drew Harry’s dinosaurs and made handprint dinosaurs 🦕
We collected things inside and outside that would match our list of describing words.

Week 1 Home Learning
Well done Dosbarth Apple🍎 for all your hard work.
This week we wrote our New Year’s Resolutions and thought about what we could achieve this year.
We then made frames to write our resolutions in and made a family resolution wreath.
We listened to the story Squirrel New Year’s Resolution and then made our own cardboard tube squirrel.
We started learning about subtraction and wrote first, now and then subtraction stories.
Autumn Term 2020
Welcome back to all our Year 1/2 pupils. We hope you all had a lovely Summer Holiday and are looking forward to a fun-filled year with lots of exciting new learning.
For all of us this has been a very different return to school with new ways of entering and leaving school and classrooms that look very different. As we know our children are very resilient and
have all settled well and quickly adapted to the new classroom rules and changes to the school day. We are very proud of them.
Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to greet your child.
As we are unable to have parents inside the building at this time any queries you may have please email me at:
Our topic this term is
“What matters to me”
For the first few weeks we will be prioritising the children’s well being and completing lots of activities to help the children feel safe and confident within our class while getting to know them.
We will also get them involved in the planning of our topic and find out what matters to them.
P.E. for our class is on a Wednesday. No kit is necessary.
Please clearly label all cardigans and jumpers.
On Wednesdays the children are welcome to wear joggers/ leggings and trainers.
Reading books will be sent home once a week on an allocated day for each child.
Reading at home is extremely beneficial for your child. We appreciate your support with reading and spelling.
Please return book and record book the next day and make comments wherever possible.
Book bags can be purchased for 50p from school.
As we are unable to provide fruit at the moment children will be able to bring a piece of fruit for snack time. If your child has trouble peeling their fruit please could you make sure it is already prepared for them to eat. Also if they are having grapes please could these be cut in half and not given whole.
Milk will be provided in school or the children can have a drink from their water bottle.
Thank you for your continued support.
