Class 1 Green Grasshoppers

Welcome to Class 1!


We are the Green Grasshoppers and we are Foundation 2 children. We work as part of a unit with the Blue Whales in Class 2 and together we share our learning activities and our classrooms. Mrs Newbery is our teacher and Miss Kelly is the Blue Whale teacher and we are supported by Miss Greenstreet, Mrs Sturdy and Miss Sarikaya. Our classrooms open up to make a large, vibrant learning environment with lots of opportunities to play and develop our learning.

Badger Forest School

The children had great fun on our trip to Badger Forest School. We enjoyed hunting for minibeasts, building bug hotels, den building and roasting marshmallows on our handmade fires! It was lovely to see the children exploring and enjoying the beautiful environment at Cardinham Woods. Thank you to all grown ups who supported us on our visit.


'You Choose' Topic

The children all took part in 'Floorbook' planning for our new topic, 'You Choose'. This topic allows the children to express their knwoedge and understanding of different job roles alongside a focus on emergency transport; a key interest of many Foundation 2 children.

Reading books together at home also promotes a love of reading and helps to support good attitudes to learning as children get older. with your child at home every day.

...practice their common exception words with them every day.

...practise saying numbers which are one more or one less.
