Apple Tree Class

Welcome to Apple Tree Class!

My name is Mrs Parsons and I teach year 1/2. I love to create exciting role play areas for you to explore, in the theme of our current topic. You will also hear me singing quite a lot as it is one of my favourite things to do! In my spare time I like to watch movies and spend time with my family (especially in the garden or at the beach).

We are very excited to be back at school and can’t wait to start learning again. Over the next three weeks we will be learning about Towers, Tunnels and Turrets! We will be studying castles and their functions. Also, discovering who our queen is and if she makes all the rules! We will be researching famous tunnels and what they are used for and finally, diving into history to determine what Guy Fawkes used a tunnel for. I can’t wait!

In Apple Tree class we have high expectations for reading at home and school. Reading is extremely important for pupils, as it helps them improve academically in all aspects of the curriculum. Please ensure that your child has an adult signature to show when they have read at home. We will be recognising pupil’s achievements with our ‘Champion Reader’ scheme. The whole school challenge is three reads a week- but I know that we can do more than that!

P.E will be every Monday commencing 8/3/21 with Prestige Sport and every Thursday with Mrs Dearden. Please ensure that your child comes to school in full kit; long hair tied back and earrings removed.

Apple Tree class visit the school library on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will choose a book to take home for the week. Please ensure these are returned to school each Tuesday so they can be changed.

I have uploaded the curriculum map and the Topic homework grid for this half term below.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to come and talk to me.
