Newton Class: Pre-School, Reception and Year 1

Welcome to

Newton Class


We are the Pre-School, Reception and Year 1 pupils and our teachers are Mrs Robins and Mrs Murray.  We are lucky to have two fantastic teaching assistants to work with us throughout the week: Mrs Clutsom and Miss Newton, who specifically works with the Pre-School children.

We are an inquisitive class of children who love asking questions and then finding out the answers!


Update for Week Beginning: 16.05.2022


Our topic this half term is Will you be my friend?


We are super excited about Science Week this week and conducting lots of experiments - we know there are sweets in the office, so are wondering what they have to do with Science??? 


This week in English, we will be continuing our class book 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers - a beautiful story of friendship - joining sentences to make our writing longer!


In Maths, the Year 1 children will be looking at multiplication and division and the Reception Children will be looking at 'how much' can it hold!


Our Science learning will focus on lots of experiments for Science Week and we will continue to find out more about animals: fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals - do you know what they have in common?


In our topic work this week, we are working out what greetings we like to use with our friends and family in preparation for work on safe touch and continuing our Big Bear Funk unit - we do like the sound of these lessons!  


We will make the most of the sunshine and get outdoors for some physical time and working out what containers hold the most water and sand.
