Lime Tree Class - Year 1/2
Welcome! Lime Tree Class are a Year 1/2 class taught by Mr Spence and supported by Miss Sanderson, Mrs Hand and Miss Burrows. We are learning to balance play with more formal learning and are working really hard to set a good example now to younger children. We are starting to learn a variety of skills that will help us in our learning journey through school. We enjoy learning in a variety of ways and try our hardest!

Reading: Reading record books are to be brought to school every day with book bags. We change reading books on Fridays and encourage children to read 5 times each week to contribute to our classes extreme reading challenge percentage.
Homework: Homework alternates between Maths and English each week with the occasional piece of Topic work. Homework goes home every Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday. This is an expectation of all pupils in Lime Tree Class. If there is a problem or your child doesn’t understand a task, please come and speak to us and we can explain in further detail.
Spelling: Spellings are sent home every Friday and are tested the following Thursday. Please spend time with your child looking at the spelling patterns and understanding the meaning of each word.
We are all looking forward to a great year of learning in Year 1/2!

The Great Fire Workshop - (10.10.19 - 11.10.19)
Pupils in Limetree Class enjoyed a superb day taking part in practical activities with a specialist forest schools practitioner last week. The children spent the morning learning about 'The Great Fire' and finding out why it happened and how we prevent such things happening now. They made their own medieval houses and decorated them with paper and paint.
In the afternoon Annie set the models up with a model of St. Paul's Cathedral and demonstrated how the first started and spread through London. She talked about fire safety and how we can stay safe around fire. The children had a great day and asked some excellent questions throughout.
