Stephenson Class

Welcome to Stephenson Class!

  Summer Term Is Here!

Welcome back to Summer at Woodhouses. We have some wonderful learning opportunities planned for this half term, to celebrate being back at school, and life beginning to return to normal...



Our topic this half term, is Sensational Safari - we will be learning about Africa, the language, the geography and the people. In Science, we will be learning about animals and their types, such as amphibians and reptiles. Then we will move on, to learning about plants. In RE we are learning about what it means to belong to a faith community - looking at some of the ceremonies and beliefs of other faiths, such as Islam and Judaism. 

(Knowledge organisers are available below to help support your child with their learning).

We will be spending lots more time outdoors so please ensure your child has a coat with them each day. Wellies would also be a good idea!



Week 1 and 2

We have been working hard since we came back to school after the Easter break. We have been learning about life in Africa; in particular, Kenya. We discovered that Africa has some similarities to the UK as well as differences. 

 Science learning has included finding out about animal classifications, and we made class posters of our findings.

RE has been about belonging for year 1 and year 2 are learning about how other faiths celebrate, so we have talked about Ramadan this week. Again, we found lots of similarities to Christianity!

Fractions in Maths has been a fun, hands on topic. Year 2 can even count in halves, thirds and quarters! They blew us away!

In Literacy, we have used expanded noun phrases, exclamation sentences and commas in lists, when writing about an African girl called Zahra. 

Take a look at the photos below to see our fantastic work.








The adults in Class Stephenson are Mrs Rowan and Mrs Strange. We are a mixed Year 1 and 2 class. We know that children learn through experiences and so adopt a 'hands on approach' to our learning. In our class this year, we have introduced continuous provision which enables our children the opportunity to learn through play based activities. We also have an outdoor classroom, which we have been using to explore the weather and seasonal changes.
