Mr Garrett

Mr Garrett is very excited to be teaching this FANTASTIC class. There is an exciting and fun filled term ahead with lots of interesting things to learn about.

He is lucky enough to have travelled lots of the world and is passionate about sharing stories of his adventures and experiences with the children. He has already shown the children videos of him trekking through the rainforest in Borneo.

He is responsible for Literacy throughout the school, so there is sure to be lots of exciting writing going on in class.

Outside school, Mr Garrett loves to get wet with surfing being his favourite past-time. He also enjoys playing and watching lots of sports which include football, rugby and athletics.

He can often be seen doing after school clubs and other extra- curricular activities.

Autumn  term 2:

The Text we will be looking at this half term is 'Nibbles the Book Monster'. Nibbles causes mischief and mayhem as he nibbles through our book, making changes to traditional tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood. He will also be causing trouble in our classroom by nibbling some of Mr Garrett's paper work. Willow's job will be to catch him and put a stop to his behaviour. Along the way, we will be writing list, mastering simple sentences, attempting diary entries and learning about adjectives and nouns. 


We will bee looking at number bonds to 10 and 20, using a range of models and materials to help us. We will then move on to focusing on addition and subtraction. Children will be using concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to support them when developing these skills. We will also be developing and reasoning skills. 

Santa's Setbacks

We are excited about getting started with our Christmas performance. We will be spending time learning songs, dances, words and practising our acting ready for the big performances in December. 


Our main topic focus will be 'The Great Fire of London'. We will be doing a range of art activities, learning facts about how the fire began, comparing London then to how it is now and looking at how that effected to spread of the fire. We will also be using role play and drama to explore how the people of London felt during that time.
