Below is the collection of photos from our Dragonflies class last year. We had a wonderful time! If you're moving into Year 2, do have a look at what you might be getting up to in the year to come!
We have been thinking about fossils during this term and how they are made. Given the importance of fossils to the discovery of dinosaurs, we have decided to recreate some fossils (without the millions of years-waiting time!) using a malleable material.

These sounds are taught in Phase 5. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will be taught these sounds.
Oare Gunpowder Works - School Trip
We had a brilliant time at the Oare Gunpowder Works last week, where we were able to see what impact Faversham had on the production of gunpowder in the 1600s and how gunpowder was made. As well as exploring the grounds and learning about gunpowder, we also spent some time making charcoal on a fire (a key ingredient in the production of gunpowder). See the pictures below!
‘High Frequency’ Words
All children in Classes R, 1 and 2 bring home a pack of ‘High Frequency’ words every week on a Friday. Some of these words are very difficult to sound out the normal way so they need to be memorised. It is very important for the children to learn these words as they will come up consistently in reading books. As the children move to Class 1 and 2, the words form the basis of the childrens’ writing.
We would like the children to spend just 5 minutes per day learning the words – you may like to devise a game with the words or write the words on paper to stick around the house!
Please keep the words in your child’s school bag so they can be used in school on a daily basis.
If you have any questions regarding ‘High Frequency’ words (HFW) please speak to your class teacher or Mrs Fairs, the Key Stage 1 Manager.
Find below, a large list of HFW to check off throughout the year.
