Plateosaurus - Year 1 / 2

Welcome to Plateosaurus!

Year 1/2


Welcome to our class! We are 20 Year 1s and 10 Year 2s. Our teachers are Miss Healey on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Arber on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We are supported by Mrs Simpson, Miss Wilson, Mrs Holgate and Mrs Noble. Mrs Bowen works in our class on Wednesday afternoons and Mrs Holgate on Tuesday afternoons. We love being creative and take every opportunity to use the outdoors, iPads and lots of other practical resources in our learning. Our teachers plan closely alongside the teachers in the other Year 1 and Year 2  classes so our learning is exciting, active and engaging.  Pax the Plateosaurus chooses a super learner each week to go home with. He has had some exciting weekends! We learn to do work we are proud of and be the best learners we can be.

Our Topics


Each half term we begin a new topic with a 'hook'. This is an exciting and creative start to our topic adventure. Over the past year we have loved taking part in storytelling workshops, undertaken a fitness challenge, welcomed a Victorian visitor and become Nature Detectives for the morning. For each topic we decorate our classroom door to show display an aspect of our learning. This term we are exploring Enemy Attack! This is how animals and plants survive and protect themselves.
