Caterpillars - Years 1 and 2


Week beginning Monday 26th February 2024

We hope you had a lovely weekend. Take a peek at some of our learning, linked to our new topic, below...


A big welcome back to all our Caterpillars and their families.

This term, our wider curriculum theme is...

In Geography we will be honing our map skills, as well as identifying both human and physical geographical features within our local environment. Our local area will also feature heavily in our History sessions this term. We will explore how Cheriton has changed over the years and examine the story behind the development of Kingsnorth Gardens. In Science we will become 'Apprentice Gardeners'; identifying the life-cycle of plants, looking closely at germination  and investigating what green plants really need to grow healthily.

Full details of our wider curriculum learning, as well as this term's home learning challenges, will be available soon.


A reminder...P.E. lessons will continue to be on Wednesdays. Pupils should come to school in their P.E. kits on this day.

We will continue to change books in school twice a week, although children do need to be proactive in asking for their book to be changed! There are always plenty of books on the Bug Club site to try out or your child may enjoy their own books at home. Please try to hear your child read for at least 5 minutes each day and record their efforts in the reading log book.

Parent's evening is coming soon but if you have any questions, worries or concerns about your child's learning, please do get in touch.
