Eddystone Lighthouse Class (Yr 1/2)

Welcome to Eddystone Class!

Our teachers are Mrs Broomfield and

Mrs Banfield

Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Harding and Mrs Pankhurst


Our Curriculum.

Some subjects, such as English and Maths, are taught on a daily basis; others, like Science, are taught weekly; and some are taught in topic blocks.

This term we have a Geography topic focusing on our world- finding out about the different continents and investigating hot and cold places. Some of our English texts will link to this topic too, with stories from other cultures and set in hot and cold places.

If you would like to find out more about what we will be learning across the curriculum this term, please see the curriculum map attached below.



We will try to share your child's learning with you on a regular basis via Seesaw. Do ask if you are not sure how to access this as lots of useful information will also be sent this way. You will also be able to send us messages via Seesaw and we will try to respond promptly.


This term, Eddystone Class PE sessions will be on Mondays and Fridays, and we ask that children come to school in their PE kit on those days (white t-shirt and black shorts) and wearing suitable shoes. 


All children will be provided with a healthy snack each morning. 

Please encourage children to bring their water bottle.


We would ask you to read with your child as often as possible- it really does make a huge difference to their progress. If they are not in the mood to read to you, it is fine to read to them or to take it in turns to read a page each- it should be an enjoyable experience, not a chore! They will bring books home from school, but they may sometimes rather read things they choose at home or at the library. Talking about what they have read or asking questions about a story you have read to them is also invaluable and we are really grateful for your support in this area. We will be changing their books during weekly guided reading sessions this term, so they will have opportunities to read the same book several times- building their fluency and therefore their confidence and enthusiasm for reading.


Spelling lists will be sent home towards the beginning of term and will be tested on Fridays. They may practise a particular phonic sound, be taken from the "common exception words" list of high frequency words that are tricky to spell, or practise a particular spelling rule.
