Meerkats (R/1)

A warm welcome to Meerkats class page

Myself, Mrs Cox and Miss Jones a will be sharing the roles of teaching in both classrooms this term and any questions or queries you have can be directed at any of us.

Please remember to send  your child in each day with a named water bottle, their reading book and diary, any spare clothes they may need and a coat.

Reception Topic

The topic in reception for this term is wet and wild. The children will be learning about the lifecycles of various mini beasts, pond dipping and planting tomatoes and summer flowers. They will be reading 'Biscuit bear' and designing and writing about their own bears.

Year 1 Topic

Our topic this term is split into 2 sections ‘'Our country’ and 'Around the world'. Within this geography topic we will be finding out about the UK and the countries that it is made up of, its capital cities and National symbols. In the second half-term we will move further afield to countries in Europe and other parts of the world. This will allow the children to compare their findings with their home country.


Reception and year 1 children will have PE on Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure PE kits are in school. We will be outside so ensure a school PE kit is provided along with trainers. Long hair must be tied back and earrings removed. This term we will be completing tasks linked toinvasion games, tennis and athletics.

Homework for year 1

Homework will be sent home on a Friday. It is extremely important that the children try their best to complete the work independently. The work will be related to the phonics that they are currently learning in class. It needs to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.
