Welcome to Explorers 2022-23

Our class is made up of Year 1 and Year 2 children. Our class teacher is currently Mrs Ramsdale, however the Year 1 pupils do join the reception children with Miss O'Neill for some of their learning who is teaching in reception while Mrs Coupe is on maternity leave. 
We also have Mrs Tucker and Mrs Tomlinson who help in our class.

Explorers teachers

This page will include what we have been learning and what we are going to be learning (don't forget to check out the gallery page and our Facebook page for more regular updates). If you cannot find a letter you are looking for please check the letters page under the 'parents' tab or pop into the office to ask. 

Key Information:


Please ensure your child brings in a water bottle and their reading book/record every day. Please also ensure that their belongings are labeled - it makes it easier to return when left around school!



For the Spring term- Our PE days are Monday and a Thursday. Monday will be invasion games.  Thursday will be Dance. 


For PE lessons, Children will need to come in their PE kit.  This should be: plain white t-shirt, black shorts/ joggers and trainers. Please make sure the children are in warm enough kit to ensure we can access our outdoor P.E. comfortably. 



Homework will be set on a Friday.
Each week they will have a list of spellings which are shared on Seesaw. 

Pupils also need to read at home as much as possible, daily is best. 
Pupils can also log into Numbots or Timestable Rockstars (Y2's) to complete extra activities if they wish.


School milk

School milk is free for all children at Local Authority settings under the age of 5. Once your child turns 5 they will no longer be entitled to free milk but you can pay for it. This is a separate service to ParentPay and is ran by an outside company. If you wish to purchase milk you will need to do so via the cool milk website. They will then send a register of the children who are entitled and who pay for milk to school. https://www.coolmilk.com/parents/
