Class M

Welcome to Class M

We are children in Year 1 and Year 2. Our teacher is Miss Johnson and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hughes.


This Term's Learning –

During Spring Term, Class M will be looking at the exciting topic ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’. From pets at home to animals in the zoo, we are going to find out about a range of different animals. As part of our learning we shall be; creating our own imaginary pets, classifying animals of the same species and exploring the scientific terms ‘carnivore’, ‘herbivore’ and ‘omnivore’.

In English we shall be writing recounts, reading fables and exploring a variety of Nursery Rhymes and poems.

In Maths we shall be looking at measurement and how this links to animal feeding.

All this work sounds tiring! Before we start, let’s curl up and take a nap… perhaps a cat nap!

Phonics information for parents

phonics parents hand out Sep 15.docx

I would recommend visiting where you can find a selection of interactive games for all phonic phases.



We do PE twice a week, usually on Wednesdays and Fridays. However, please ensure PE kits are kept in school all week to give us flexibility when timetable changes are needed.

Children that wear earrings should be able to remove these themselves, or not wear these on PE days. (It is advisable to have ears pierced at the beginning of the summer holiday).



  • Spellings will come home on a Monday to practise and be tested at school on the Friday.
  • Maths homework will also be set on a Monday which will be due in on the following Monday. This homework will then be marked and discussed with children during one of their maths sessions where misconceptions will be addressed.
  • Reading books will be in your child’s book bag every day and we encourage them to read daily. Please ensure their book comes with them every day as they will read to an adult during the week.
