Y1 & 2 - Henwood Class

Henwood Class
Years 1 and 2
Miss Cachia is our Teacher and she is also a Forest School Lead and our History and Geography Subject Lead. Mrs Martin and Mrs Carthew are our Teaching Assistants. We are a busy class of 28 children who love to ask questions, explore and get creative!
Our new wonderful topic is all about Marvellous Materials! We will be identifying, sorting and exploring all about different materials. The first week back, we will learn the story of The Three Little Pigs and we'll have a go at using a range of materials to build our own houses! Let's hope The Big Bad Wolf doesn't come along to blow any of them down. 
A typical Henwood Week will be as follows: 

Class communication letter sent (weekly spellings will appear on here as the term progresses, we will continue to follow the Year 1 and 2 Word List in their homework books). 
PE with Mr Jones. Children should come to school wearing their PE kit and outdoor trainers for the whole day- they can wear joggers instead of shorts if they want to.
Forest School afternoon, alternating weeks for each year group. On their Forest School day, children will come to school wearing Forest School clothes and indoor shoes. They should bring wellies and waterproofs in a separate bag.
