3rd April 

Today is the end of the Lent term, well done Year 1 and 2! You are all superstars and now it's time for a little rest over the Easter holidays. Please check out our Easter activities document if you would like some ideas to keep you out of mischief! 

After Easter we will be using the book The Rainbow Bear by Michael Morpurgo to guide your learning. You will be able to access the story from a Powerpoint on the class pages but if you do want to purchase it, it is available on Amazon but this is absolutley not a necessity. 

Happy Easter!

Can you guess who they are?

Aisling's bean plant has grown so much that it needs some more room to help it continue to grow healthily so she has put it in a bigger pot. 

How are the rest of the bean plants coming on?

It's another beautiful sunny day Year 1 and 2, I hope you are all managing to get out into the garden for to enjoy it! 

I have another challenge for you! Could you borrow a phone camera or a camera, take a picture of your favourite plant, flower or tree in your garden and write about it. What is it called? What colour is it? How does it change through the different seasons? Does it attract insects? Why is it your favourite?

Lavender is my favourite, I have lots of it in my garden and it attracts lots of bees, it's very bee friendly. In the Summer it gets purple flowers and smells beautiful! 


Have a lovely day!

Thank you so much for the emails that we are receiving from you all. It's so lovely to hear that you are all keeping safe and enjoying time at home with your families at the same time. Thank you so much to William, Luke, Harrison and Merle for sending me drawings of your garden, the colours certainly make me think Spring has arrived!

Hello Year 1 and 2. We hope you are all safe at home with your families, we are thinking of you! A challenge from Mrs Ellis - can you draw a picture of your garden on this beautiful sunny day? I bet all your gardens are starting to show signs of Spring in different ways! If you don't have a garden to draw, just draw a picture of what you can see from a window in your house. 

Take care!

A massive WELL DONE to all the Year 1 and 2 children that took part in the Christmas performance of 'The Mouse in Santa's House'  today and yesterday. You are all absolute superstars and we are all so proud of you for putting such enthusiasm into your show. Thank you for being the best as always! 



3rd December  2019

Today we gave some important visitors a sneak preview of the Year 1 and 2 Christmas performance 'A mouse in Santa's house'. Whilst the SVP enjoyed their Christmas party, both classes performed three of the songs from the play to an audience for the first time! Despite their initial nerves, the children did fantastically and we are now so looking forward to the full performance. Thank you for having us at your party! 




18th November 2019

Last week was a very busy week in Year 1 and 2! We kicked off the week with Remembrance and creating poppy art to add to a liturgy, then on Wednesday we took a walk in the local area to spot the signs of Autumn and some children were lucky enough to spot a squirrel collecting food to store away for Winter! We were also mindful that it was Friendship Week and took some time out to think how we show this everyday at English Martyrs', reminding us of just how amazing our pupils are!

Look at the fantastic art work the Year 2 children have created today with pastels! They wanted to represent the image of Moses leading the Jewish people out of Egypt to freedom.




4th November 2019 

Welcome to Advent 2, it's a packed half term kicking off with a focus on Judaism this week and then Autumn Watch next week. This week we are looking at the importance of Moses and Abraham to the Jewish faith. In English we are using the text 'Moses in the Bulrushes' and in R.E. we will be looking at how Moses led the people out of Egypt. Ask your child about these stories and what they have learnt about the Jewish faith.
