Welcome to Summer Class!


Summer Class is a mixed Year 1 and 2 class taught by Mr Solomon and Miss Kirk, 
supported by Mrs Moulding (HLTA) and LSA Mrs Curd.
Learning in Summer Class is based upon first-hand experiences 
through exciting half-termly topics. 

Welcome to the last week of term. On the website this week I have uploaded a number of different exercises. Have a look through to see which ones you would like to complete to revise your learning this year. These activities will stay up over the Summer holidays too. I hope you enjoy the last few days of your home learning and it is been great to see your hard work via email.

End of Year Message from Mr Dee

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Here are some maths workbooks with questions that cover all of the units we have taught this year. Why not spend the last week of term working on the units that you feel less confident with? There are some reasoning and arithmetic style questions too. 
Below are some writing tasks that you could complete over the last week of term or beyond. Have a look through to see which ones you find of interest. Perhaps you will choose to write about your memories in Year 2? Or start a summer holiday diary?
Below is a copy of the Year 2 Common Exception words. Please continue to practice these words in the last week of term and over the Summer holidays for the start of year 3. There is also a series of spelling questions that covers what we have learnt this year.
Here are a series of Science Quizzes and experiments (that could be completed at home with adult supervision) to have a look at over the last week of term and into the summer holidays.

Happy Monday Everyone. I hope you haven't got too wet over the weekend with all the rain we have had! This week we are finishing our work on The Pirates Next Door in English, we are working on statistics in Maths, learning about Oceans in Topic and experimenting with floating and sinking in Science. The RE work for this half term is also on the website. Have a great week everyone and check out the videos from myself on the website.
In English this week we will be writing the next adventure for Jim Lad and Tilda! We will start the week by planning our story before we then get writing the beginning, middle and end of out story. On there website there are some word maps that might help you with your writing. I hope by the end of the week you will be proud to show your story writing and we can make a gallery of them on the website!
This week in Maths we are looking at statistics which means recording data. Over the week you will be working with tally charts, pictograms and block graphs by creating interpretating data from graphs and creating your own.

As we have been learning about Pirates, I thought it would be nice to do some work on the Oceans this week. I have put a series of activities on the website including a Quiz, some video links, an art activity on how to make your own ocean in a bottle, a comprehension text on oceans and a worksheet on labelling the oceans. Will you be able to name and locate all the Oceans by end the of the week!

Want to do some work more on Oceans? Perhaps you could do some research of your own on Oceans? Maybe you could create an information poster about the oceans? Or talk to a friends or family about protecting the Oceans from pollution? You might like to draw or paint a picture of an animal from the ocean! Have fun and I look forward to seeing what you have been up to!

Hello everybody,

We hope you are having a nice start to the week? As per a few requests Miss Kirk and I will try to upload documents as PDF, this should eliminate the formatting issues that people have been having in the future.

As the weather has taken a turn for the worse I have found a nice website with lovely rainy day activities. Not all of them will be applicable under the lock down but there are some brilliant ideas here:

There is also the Oxford Reading Tree website that has lots of free E-Books to read:

Just think how tall your sunflowers will grow with all this rain to drink!

A list of suggested educational games from

Maths Website


A great website for practicing maths online. It has a range of questions for all the different areas of learning and is broken down into year groups. Perhaps the children could work on areas they feel less confident with. 




Quick Note to say that we have recieved some requests from families for additional work. We will endeavour to add a series of additional tasks each week for your children. These can be found on the web page below. 

Dear parents and children

As per multiple requests, Mr Solomon and Miss Kirk will endeavour to upload a weekly book read and message to the school website. These will be under the section: Children > Video Resource Centre > Summer Class Story Time.

We hope you enjoy!

Miss Kirk and Mr Solomon


P.S. Ignore the bit about sunflower seeds, you'll all find out soon enough! wink

Dear parents and children,

We hope you have had a wonderful Easter break, we have been so lucky to have such lovely weather. Hopefully you’ve been noticing all the changes that Spring has brought to all of the plants and animals.

As part of our new Topic ‘From Dusk until Dawn’ we will be looking at nocturnal animals; their habits and their habitats!

We’ll try and ease you all back into a learning environment where we have lots of nice jobs and tasks for you to experience together. Please remember to keep up with your daily reading and a little daily Phoincs practise for year 1 goes a long way. laugh

Again, an enormous thank you to all of you who have been e-mailing us lots of work, it’s fantastic to see what you have all been up to! We hope this finds you all well and safe.

Kind regards,

Mr Solomon and Miss Kirk

Dear Summer Class

How are you doing? We hope you are all keeping safe and having fun indoors.

We have had some lovely pieces of work sent to us over email which has been great to see. Lots of you have been showing us your writing and maths. We have even seen some of you making great peace poles.

Please continue to email over you work. Mr Solomon has been especially pleased with the amazing letters he has had for the Easter Bunny.

Let us know the fun things you have been up to as well!

Enjoy the Easter Celebrations at home with your family.

Miss Kirk and Mr Solomon 


Easter Writing - Please write a response to the EB and share the Easter Story with children

Great Fire of London Activities - please use for discussion if you cannot print.

Creativity drawing prompts - Just for fun!

Dear Summer Class

We hope you are enjoying your first week of home learning and that you are keeping safe.

Mr Solomon and I will be updating the website every week with learning for you to complete at home. The learning will continue on from the work we have been doing at school.



Mr Solomon and I will upload daily maths for you to complete. Mr Solomon’s focus is Number and Miss Kirk’s focus is Shape, Space and Measure. Ask an adult to explain the tasks to you if you are unsure. Most of you received a book that you can complete this work in on Friday.


English/ Topic / Big Write

Mr Solomon will upload English and Topic tasks which relate to the current topic, which at the moment is The Great Fire of London. Miss Kirk will upload a Big Write task on a Thursday which will have a different topic each week. If possible please encourage the children to complete this work on lined paper.



Our current topic is Materials. Miss Kirk will upload science work to complete on a Friday. This work should be practical and a chance for you to investigate.




Mr Solomon has upload some phonics links for Year 1 children and Miss Kirk will upload weekly spellings for Year 2 pupils. All children should be practicing the Year 1 and 2 common exception words.



Please encourage your children to read every day in whatever format that might be. Most children took home some books from school on Friday. Please remember to encourage your children to sound out using their phonics and to ask your child lots of questions about the book.


Please email Mr Solomon or myself if you have any questions. We would love to hear from you or see your home learning. We will be available by email on our normal working days (Mr Solomon Monday – Wednesday and Miss Kirk Thursday- Friday).


Best Wishes

Miss Kirk

Autumn Term 2

This half term, our topic is 'Epic Explorers'. This history and geography based topic will focus specifically on the expeditions of Captain Scott and Shackleton. We will look closely at the physical features (landscape, weather, animals) of Antarctica through videos and images, and compare with our Winter in the UK.  Take a look at the topic map and Discovery Time activities below to see what exciting learning we have in store.

We have already started preparations for our Christmas play 'Babushka'. The children will be developing their speaking, listening, music and drama skills, along with being given their chance to perform to a public audience. It is going to be a very busy half term indeed!  

We have had some amazing Victorian Toys projects and presentations coming in to school. The children should be so proud of their research and presentation skills.

Autumn Term 1

This half term, our topic is 'Let's Play'. The focus will be on how toys have changed through living memory. First, we will explore our own modern toys and share our 'special' favourite toys with each other. Then, we will find out about toys from our parents' and grandparents' childhood through interviews, 'show and tell' toys that children bring into school, a living history exhibition and hands on play with these toys in Discovery Time. We invite parents and grandparents into our Discovery Time sessions to play alongside the children. Finally, we will find out about Victorian toys. We will compare the materials that the toys are/were made from. Take a look at our topic map to find out what other learning we have in store this half term.  


English: Reading

Our whole class 'Book Talk' sessions will be based on the books Dogger and The Velveteen Rabbit. Together, we will retrieve information from the text to ensure we have a basic understanding of what is going on in the story. Next, we will use our inference skills to explore the feelings of the characters. We will also relate this to our own experience of losing our special toy or how we might feel if we lost it. We will discuss the meanings of some of the vocabulary the author uses. The Year 2 children will be challenged further by being 'Grammar Detectives' where they will be encouraged to find grammatical features in the text e.g. expanded nouns phrases, list with a comma, compound sentences using a conjunction, contractions, possessive apostrophes, which will in turn support their writing. Word reading skills will be taught in groups through phonics, guided reading and individual reading sessions that are closely matched to your child's age and stage of learning.  


English: Writing

Our focused writing will be based around the stories Dogger and the Velveteen Rabbit. The children will recreate a story similar to the structure of Dogger featuring their own toy which sadly is lost then found. The children will be encouraged to apply the writing skills that are taught along the way. These skills are dependent on your child's age and stage of learning. We will be sharing our stories with the new Year R children.

The Velveteen Rabbit features a toy that becomes REAL so the  children will imagine their own special toy to coming to life through the 'Nursery Magic'. We will explore ideas for adventures through drama for writing. We will be videoing these stories to upload onto this website to entertain you, so watch this space!

Writing Across the Curriculum

The children will be encouraged to present their research about parents' and grandparents' toys through a range of writing opportunities in topic time i.e. making information signs for our class museum, planning what to say in a speech bubble to create a video documentary on an ipad, posters and information booklets about toys in the past. As homework, children are encouraged to choose how to present the information they find out from interviewing members of their family such as photos with captions, poster, video interview, PowerPoint presentation, information booklet etc.
