Our outdoor PE session is every Tuesday. Please remember to come to school in your PE kit including jogging bottoms.

We follow God Matters in Religious Education (the Portsmouth Diocese scheme of learning). The children learn two hours of RE per week in KS1 and are involved in Collective Worship.


Things that help us learn

We use Mathletics and Oxford Reading Owl to support children’s home learning. We have established the use of Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 1. Reading books are sent home on a weekly basis which are pitched at your child’s current phonic ability and at a level they can decode and comprehend at a 95% accuracy. Weekly spellings are sent home to consolidate the phonetic sounds the children have been learning that week.  


Our Curriculum Web

We learn about Toys, Our School, The Great Fire of London and many more exciting things throughout our Year 1 and 2 learning journey! Take a look at our curriculum webs to view our topics throughout the year.



Normally in Year 1 and 2, we go to Milestones Museum, Frensham pond. Due to the pandemic, we aren’t able to go on any of our normal trips. We will keep you updated if there are any changes and if we are able to go on any virtual visits.

If you have any questions or there is anything urgent that you think I need to know, please contact the School Office either by phone at 01252 548123 or by email at

Summer Topic 2021

Ready, Steady, Grow is a Science themed learning journey, where we will be investigating what plants need to grow. We will also be carrying out a field work study to learn how we can look after our planet. 


During the second part of the term, our topic is called Beside the Seaside. This is a Geography themed topic where we use maps to find out where our beaches are as well as comparing and contrasting Farnborough to seaside towns. The beaches we will be learning about are Brighton and St Ives. 


Our class novels this term are books by Beatrix Potter and The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch stories.
