Conifer Class – Reception and Year 1
Welcome to Conifer Class! Mrs Cook and Mrs Taylor are in our class every day and Mrs Maggs teaches us every Friday afternoon while Mrs Cook has PPA.
We are Conifer Class (written by Conifer class!)
We are 4, 5 and 6 years old and love learning, especially about electricity and dinosaurs. We’re really proud of our writing, especially the stories we wrote about Diwali.
We are good and really kind to each other. We help each other when we can see someone is struggling.
In the classroom, we do lots of exciting things like cooking and playdough. We love making models with the Lego. Sometimes, we bring phonics and maths home learning in from home, and can share it with our friends.
Outside, we love playing chase and tag and building with the big blocks. Some of us go to Breakfast Club which is really good because you get to eat breakfast at school!
We love being in Conifer Class!
Term 6 Learning
Under the Sea
This term we will be learning about the World and how explorers use different transport to travel and explore the world and beyond.
We will also spend time learning about the oceans and the creatures that live there, as well as finding out about the problems of plastic pollution and how this effects our wildlife.
Transition work will be done throughout the term, ensuring the children are ready to move into Year 2 and step up to become the ‘older ones’ in Year 1!
Term 5 Learning
Welcome to our Summer Terms!
After a very strange start to the year, we are looking forward to our final 2 terms being a lot more stable, so we can learn, explore, investigate, enjoy and have fun together!
This term we are starting with a mini project on London, celebrating the Queen’s birthday and St George’s Day before moving onto our science project of Growth.
Term 4 Learning
Welcome back to school! You have all worked incredibly hard during Lockdown, whether at home or in school.
After our busy World Book Week last week we are going to move into our Dinosaur Topic. Here are the 2 overviews, detailing the areas of learning for Phonics, Maths, English and the Foundation Subjects.
Our learning in Term 3
This is not quite the start of the year we had expected, but we still have lots of fun learning to look forward to in Conifer class this term despite being in lockdown. Here is a letter detailing what to expect for your child this term:
Update 25th Jan – Lost and Found is such an amazing story, we are going to use it for Week 4 as well and move our Under the Sea for later on in the year.
Learning will be set via SeeSaw and will be uploaded by 6:30pm technology permitting. Please ensure that completed work is uploaded by a reasonable time in the afternoon. Seesaw will be staffed between 8 and 6 Monday to Friday. The slides uploaded will explain who will be responding to feedback that day.
If any further help is required, do not hesitate to get in touch. You can contact me via Seesaw.
Supporting your child with reading
It can be really tricky knowing how to support your child with reading, so I’ve made a video to give you some ideas about how you can help. It is also good to read the same book with your child at least 3 or 4 times, this enables them to develop fluency when reading a book that has become more familiar.

DUNDRY BOOK WEEK
During the week beginning 1st March we will enjoy a whole week of book themed fun, to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. Each afternoon the children will choose an activity or two to try from an exciting menu created by their teachers. See the video below to hear Dundry teachers reading some their favourite stories and poems.
CELEBRATING HOME LEARNING
This week we have been ‘Cold, Cold, Cold’ finding out about the South Pole and Penguins! There has been some wonderful writing done this week, as well as lots of penguins being made and some crazy Science experiments with ice!
