Welcome to Farthing Wood Class

Farthing Wood

Welcome to Farthing Wood Class. In this wonderful Class you will find 23 very curious and inquisitive children who are really looking forward to building their resilience , resourcefulness, collaborative and creative skills, as well as being reflective and curious just like our JONK characters! We have Mrs Betts as our teacher and three wonderful teaching assistants: Miss Cutting, Mrs Farrow, and Miss Stephen to help us during the week. Just like the wonderful woodland animals of Farthing Wood we are going to be super busy exploring our provision inside and out and investigating all the amazing resources during our independent learning.

What are we learning about this term?

This half term we are going to be exploring our Topic - 'All About Me!' and look at what makes a good friend and member of our school community.

In this topic, we will be understanding the world by talking about members of our immediate family and community whilst exploring their likes and dislikes. We shall discuss what we do when we are at school and describe people who are familiar to us such as staff from school or people within our community.

We shall be learning about how we look after our bodies in a healthy way. This includes the importance of brushing our teeth correctly and how to manage our own hygiene (washing hands, going to the toilet etc). We shall also be discussing why we need to eat fruit and vegetables.

In expressive arts and design, we will be using pencils and other materials (pastels, chalk) to draw pictures from observations and begin to show accuracy and care when drawing.

We look forward to a great half-term learning 'All About Me'!

What Happened
This Week...



I like to see my friends and teachers and make things in Art. I really enjoy phonics and learning new sounds. I am looking forward to leaning new stories and and doing English. I would like to learn how to count to 100 and looking at maps of different places. I hope we can go to the fort lots too!



I like playing with my all my friends and going to special places like the fort and the treehouse. I am looking forward to English because I like to write stories and make new characters. I really like maths as well because we get to count in different ways with lots of things. And Year 2 is much harder!



I love maths because its so much fun counting to bigger numbers. I enjoy PE and playing with my friends. I am looking forward to making new friends and learning about other countries and speaking new words (in different languages). Miss Carman teaches us new words (French) for lunch!
