Nightingale Y1&2

smileyWelcome to Nightingale Class with Miss Pettit and Mrs Greensmiley

Well done everyone for some wonderful home learning.


It is lovely to have all the children back in Nightingale class. We are currently enjoying working on our geography topic, Beside the Seaside. We are also doing some wonderful outdoor learning as we learn about animals and their habitats in science. Please go to the knowledge organiser area of our website to find our key learning for these areas. Check our Class Dojo page too.

During the Spring term and as part of our home learning, we learnt all about The Great Fire of London. The children were absolutely amazing when learning about this topic at home. We made our own Tudor houses to help us learn why this fire was so great!

We also learnt a song to help us remember facts about the Great Fire. Here's our video of our home/school learning song, The Great Fire of London: September 1666. We hope you enjoy!

Here is the link to watch our nativity. Massive well done to all the children who have worked really hard learning their lines, songs and acting out their parts. Thank you so much to Miss Jackson and Miss Lamb for all their help and hard work directing and recording this. Thank you to Mr Harris for putting the video together. I hope you all enjoy watching it just as much as I did.

Merry Christmas to you all. 

Love from Miss Pettit.

Gardening and growing

During the autumn term, as part of our recovery curriculum, the children loved gardening in our garden area. We learnt lots of skills such as team work, speaking and listening and what plants need to grow. We also learnt that we are all different and need a good environment to grow, just like the plants. Here are some of the pictures of our fanastic gardening. 


We are working really hard on our cursive handwriting, forming all our letters correctly. We know that all letters must start from the line and end on the line. See below rhymes that could help with those particularly tricky letters. 



Handwriting paper for practising at home

Ten frames to support learning number bonds to 5, 10 and 20. These can be used to put a number of counters or coins on the ten frame and then count the gaps to see how many are left to make 5, 10 or 20.
