Welcome to a brand new year in Pine class! We are excited to welcome back the Year 2's and say hello and welcome to the new Year 1's! Here is some important information about Pine Class:
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays we change our reading books independently.
Mondays we change our library books.
Fridays we have PE.
We are very excited about the Autumn term ahead and have loads of wonderful things planned to learn and explore. Please come and see us if you have any questions.

What have we learnt from the Great Fire of London?
We started off our project with an experience morning where we ate freshly baked bread, smelt smoke and burnt wood, lit candles, went into a black-out tent, heard and saw a crackling fire, heard a ringing fire bell and imagined what it would have been like to actually be in the Great Fire of London. We will be doing some writing about the fire over the coming weeks so hopefully this will have inspired us!
Here is some guidance about the upcoming curriculum tests.
If you have any questions please see your class teacher.
Year 1 children complete a phonics assessment in June where they will read a selection of real and 'silly' words. They will be expected to sound out and blend the sounds they see to read the word accurately. All the sounds will have been taught during daily phonics lessons. To support your child in learning these sounds please see the links attached below to a video to show you how to pronounce the phonemes and opportunities for you to play games with your child. There is also a very useful video clip to explain more about what the assessment will involve.
If you wish for further information, please speak to Miss Doe or Mrs Willder.
We had a fantastic afternoon to mark Shrove Tuesday or ‘Pancake Day’. Each class had a pancake race where they had to flip their pancake 3 times whilst running. The winner from each class celebrated by eating a fresh pancake at the winners table! Some children also competed to see who could toss their pancake the highest and catch it again (using a tennis racket). Next year we are going to need more pancakes!
NEW: Please see below a selection of words children in each year are expected to be able to spell accurately in all writing. Practise the words as individual spellings, then try writing them in sentences. Stretch your imagination by writing sentences as 'commands', 'statements', 'questions' or 'exclamations'. Remember an exclamation sentence should start with Oh, What or How. Don't forget to use capital letters and full stops!
