Glacier class is a class of 20 mixed year 1 and 2 children. We have two teachers: Mrs Laming on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Miss Lumb on Thursdays and Fridays. Our teachers’ names are similar but our teaching assistants names are the same! Miss Alexander and Mrs Alexander (known as Mrs A to minimise confusion!) help us with our learning throughout the week.
We look forward to finding out more about glaciers, and why our class has that name, when we study more about the environment and Antarctica later in the year.
We have had a spectacular start to the new term in Marine , Polar and Glacier Classes! We have begun looking at our new book – the Jolly Postman. Unfortunately, we were unable to go on our trip to the village on Friday to find out about the job of a postman and local landmarks, however, the children had a unique experience of a virtual tour of the route! Their map making was fabulous. We are now looking at writing letters and would really appreciate it if you could support your child by writing their address with them.
In Maths we have been looking at money, identifying different coins and adding them up. Again, it would really help your child if they could look at coins and count them with you.
