Welcome to Lowry Class.
We are a Reception/Year 1 class. We enjoy our curriculum through play, investigation and enquiry, with lots of interesting lessons which gives their learning meaning and foster their interests more.
Feel free to pop back and find out what we have been up to!
Links for Home Learning
As some children are currently at home, please find below some useful links for learning. Our children have become such fantastic learners, we don't want the current crisis to impact them. It is also important that we answer questions that they may have around the current situation.
Our topic is currently The Great Fire of London. We will be learning about the events that led up to the fire and the changes that happened as a consequence to it. We will be using different texts in Literacy linked to the Great Fire of London and also be learning about bread and how this has a key part to play in the history. As we have just finished the topic of Kings and Queens, we will be looking at where the Great Fire of London fits on our time line and who the Monarch was at the time. We will be also be comparing life now to life back in 1660s.

Kings and Queens day
World Book Day 2020
The children came in today all dressed up in their favourite characters or ready for bed! They enjoyed a variety of activies in mixed classes across school, including Book in a Box. Throughout the day, children got to listen and share their favourite stories. After lunch, we were lucky to receive some brand new books as a present from the Year 6 trip to Madeline Lindley. Then we had class Kenney come and share stories they had written based on their book Escape from Pompei. What a great day!
Lowry had a great time on Friday with the Sublime Science visit. Pop over to the Science Week section under News and Events to see some photos.
