smiley Welcome to Year 1/2 smiley

Mr Fisher


Welcome to Mr Fisher's Class!


Below is some key information that you might find useful.


Our Summer Term Topic is

'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside ...'


This is a History and Geography based topic.

During this topic the children will study the local History and Geography of Burnham-on-Sea.

They will learn to sequence by chronological order, recognising the differences between past and present.

Time will be spent investigating the life of Grace Darling.


In Geography we will be locating seaside destinations on a map of the United Kingdom.


Our science work will focus on plants; identifying and naming a variety of common wild and garden plants, including their structure. 


This will be handed out on a Friday and is due back in the following Friday at the very latest. Where possible, homework will link to work being covered in class.


Spellings are also handed out on a Friday ready for a test the following Friday. Please make sure the children are practising their spellings every week.



PE is currently on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has the correct kit (including daps or trainers) as we will be outside whenever the weather is fine.


Reading Books

 I am encouraging the children to change reading books as regularly as possible. Please ensure you record any reading that takes place at home with a simple comment inside the small blue book (Reading Record). Finished books can be placed inside the classroom crate on a daily basis but they will not be changed unless the reading record has been written in. Any books that are taken back in will be quarantined before redistribution.


Over the course of the term I will look to update this class page with all the different things that are going on in Year 1/2. 


If you have any questions please feel free to email me on the contact details below:

Science - The children have been following the progress of four baby caterpillars as they ate, got a lot bigger and then each spun a chrysalis!

All four butterflies emerged without injury and were released into the wild!
