Welcome to Falcon Class
We are a year 1 and 2 class.
Our class teacher is Mr O'Leary and our teaching assistant is Mrs Alligan. On Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, Mrs Blyth is our PPA teacher.
PE takes place on a Tuesday morning. During summer term 1, the year 1 children will take part in forest school. During summer term 2, both year 1 and year 2 children will take part in forest school.
Our Summer term topic is Food, Glorious Food
In the Summer term, we will be exploring the topic of food. The children will investigate, prepare and taste food from different countries throughout the term. The Falcon class will discuss and prepare healthy meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will build on the knowledge that the children already have about food groups and why we eat healthy meals. Additionally, we have begun to plant our own vegetables in our outdoor area. The children will track the journey of each plant as well as caring for them. Later on, we will use food based texts and books to inspire story writing and food poetry
All children in Key Stage 1 are expected to complete 2 activities from the Pick and Mix menu this term. These can be brought into school on a Tuesday, and will be shared with the rest of the class that week. After we share them, the children may keep them in school or take them home if they wish. Thank you for all of the amazing projects so far! The children must be very busy with their learning at home :)
In addition, Year 2 children are given some spellings each week to learn at home. These are sent home on a Thursday, and are due in on a Tuesday. Please support your child in learning the spellings - it's so important to be a good speller! Year 1 children are given some phonics sounds in their reading diary weekly. These relate to our learning in phonics that week and can be practised at home.
