PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Please come to school in your PE kit.

Homework information can be found on the 'Homework' and 'Home Learning' tabs of this page.

We are a mixed year 1 and 2 class. We will study the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum and Mrs Harrison will adapt the learning expectations to individuals' needs and age to make sure everyone's light shines brightly.

Mrs Harrison will write a blog about our learning at least twice every half term (see the tab at the top - Mrs H's blog. No. 1 is ready now! )and will put something class-based on Twitter once a week. 

Mrs Harrison is new to Tarporley CE Primary and feels privileged to be teaching the Squirrels.  She has spent lots of time in school over the holidays moving in and considering how to move every child's learning forward from day 1. She has also been busy moving house as she had been living and teaching in primary schools in Bournemouth for the last 20 years; she's now 'back home'  and raring to go :) She is very much looking forward to meeting the Squirrels again so here's to a positive and productive first half term!

 

Our Curriculum- autumn 1

Our topic is 'Explorers'. We will learn what an explorer is and what they do/did that made them worthy of our attention. Our first text will set the scene and capture our imaginations and enthusiasm and 'exploring' will be the common thread for the whole half term.
