Squirrels- Y1 & Y2

We are Squirrel class. We are Year 1 and 2. Our teacher is Mrs Irvine. We are supported by Mrs Wheatley and Miss Buckley our School Direct Teacher.  

Muck, Mess and Mixtures 


Our topic for Spring 1 term is Muck, Mess and Mixtures. We are very excited about this topic and the children enjoyed a wonderful messy morning to launch the topic on our first day back. 

We will be learning all about everyday materials in Science, printing and collages in Art, food tasting and healthy eating in D&T, stop motion animations in Computing and lists, recipes, poetry, narrative and leaflets in English. In Maths we will be focusing on shape, time and money. 


While Miss Buckley is completing a placement at another school we have Mrs Whitby supporting us in our class. Mrs Whitby is also a School Direct Teaching Student and she is very excited to be working with us in Squirrel Class. 


PE days this term will be a Monday and a Wednesday, please ensure PE kits are in school each week and earrings are removed for PE days. 


Spellings will be continue to be tested on a Tuesday and new spellings will be given out weekly.
