Doves - Year 1 and 2

Welcome to Doves Class!


Hello, my name is Mrs Noblett and I am Dove's class teacher!

Our teaching assistants are Mrs McDowell and Mrs Nightingale. McDowell is our PPA teacher.

This half term, our topic is 'Explorers'. Within this topic, we hope to be exploring the following elements:

Design and Technology: Textiles

History: Significant Explorers

Science: Everyday Materials

R.E.: Why is Christmas important to Christians? 

Computing: Programming

Music: How does music help us to learn about the past?

PSHE/RSE: Celebrating differences


In English, we are beginning with objectives linked to non-fiction (instruction writing) and then moving on to fiction (We're Going on a Bear Hunt). 

In maths, we are beginning with addition and subtraction followed by shape.


Homework will be set on a Friday and will include weekly spellings, a maths task and one other task linked to our weekly learning. Please ensure homework is completed and handed in by Thursday the following week.

In addition to the homework, children should be reading their Read, Write, Inc book. Alternatively, when they don't have a Read, Write, Inc book, they can share a book with you at home. 

Please see the home communication sheet for information about homework and any important information for each week. 

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Mrs Noblett

The children have been doing some amazing shape work this week. They have recognised and named 2D and 3D shapes and are now moving on to looking at their properties.
The children had a really good go at sewing a running stitch in Design and Technology in preparation for making pouches over the next few weeks.
Our pouches are coming along beautifully! We have sewn the fabric together to from a pouch and made a decoration using a template to stick onto the front of our pouches. The next step is to decorate our design using sequins and glitter. We definitely love a bit of sparkle!
