Summer Term 2022


It’s going to be a busy term in Amethyst Class!
We have lots to learn and explore!


As well as continuing our focus on Phonics, English and Maths, we will be starting our new topic in Geography called ‘Our Country’. We will be learning all about the United Kingdom and the countries that make up our island.

In Science, we will be starting our new topic about Plants. We will be planting our own beans and recording how they grow. We will also be looking at wild plants, garden plants and learning about different types of trees.

After half term our History topic will be Great Explorers – we will be learning about some of history’s well known and some less well known, but equally great Explorers.

Please continue to support your child with their reading, spellings and the Word of the Week. Practice at home has a huge impact on the progress they make in school.

Please come and see us if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support

Spring Term 2022

Our Geography topic will focus on Stotfold. We will be going on an interesting walk around the town and will be looking at key landmarks such as the shops, the church and the park. We will also view all the road signs. We will be thinking about the features of the town and ideas for improvement over the next few weeks.

After half term we will be starting our History topic on the Great Fire of London. The children will learn all about how the fire started, why it spread so quickly and how London was rebuilt following the Great Fire. We will also be re-creating our own Great Fire.

In Science, our topic is Animals. We will be learning about different animal groups, where they live and what they like to eat.

As you know every Thursday the children will be bringing home spellings to learn, please encourage them to complete the practice sheet and return to school the following Thursday as it really has a positive impact on the children remembering and retaining their spellings. In addition, please help your child to read and spell the word of the week. Perhaps look for this word in the books that you read together, spell it out using playdough, draw it in some sand or a tray of rice?

Please come and see us if you have any questions.

Class Assembly planned for Wednesday 26th January


Autumn Term 2021

Welcome back to the new academic year!

We have a busy term ahead and lots to look forward to!

We will be celebrating harvest festival and are looking forward to our class assembly later this term.

There are a lot of new routines that your child will be getting used to over the next few weeks. Please help them by ensuring that they have the correct equipment on the right day and ensure all items of uniform are labelled.

It is really important that you read with your child every day and that this is recorded in their purple reading record books – this helps to track their progress effectively.

To view our class assembly please click here.

Starting after half term; each Thursday the children will be bringing home spellings to learn, please encourage the children to complete the practice sheet and return it to school the following Thursday.

In addition, each week the children have a word of the week to learn to read and spell. Please help your child with this i.e. practicing writing the word, spotting the word in their reading book and in other books you may read together.

Our history topic this term will be Nurturing Nurses. We will be learning all about the life and work of three famous nurses – Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell.

As part of our learning we are hoping to have a real nurse talk to the children about their job and how they look after their patients.

In science we will be learning about different materials and also conducting some of our own experiments. We may need your help to collect resources for these experiments so please keep an eye on Class Dojo for messages about this.

Please speak to us at the classroom door or send us a message on Class Dojo if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support
