Welcome to Delapre Class

Our reception and year 1 children are with Miss Arnold and Mrs Ward.   In Delapre, this term, we are looking forward to starting our new topic- ‘Down on the farm’. We have lots of exciting opportunities and learning planning with the potential opportunity to a trip to a working farm. We have some lovely texts to read and explore this term including- Oliver’s vegetable, Rosie’s walk and What the Ladybird heard. In our role play area we have set up a farm shop which provides lots of opportunities for a range of role play scenarios. We are focusing on developing our speech and language, explaining our ideas and learning and using new vocabulary which we have been exposed to in different books and opportunities. We will also be looking at different animals and which groups different animals belong to such as mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles. In history, we will be learning about events in living memory, including traditional and modern day farming.  

How can you help at home?

  • Take a visit to a local farm and talk with youe child about what they can see, hear and smell!
  • Visit your local library to read and borrow books about famr animals.  Local libraries can be found at East Hunsbury and Wootton.
  • When you are in the supermarket together, talk about where food comes from - locally and all over the world.
  • Look together on BBC teach website - BBC teach animals including humans to find out about mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles.
  • Talk a walk around the local area where you live - what animals can you see?
  • Create a picture at home of a farmyard and bring into school to show your class or a friend.  What materials can you use to make it?


This term the children will be reading these books at school this term and you might like to read them at home with your child:


At our school we follow the Little Wandle phonics scheme of work.  All of our individual reading books for Delapre Class are phonically aligned with this scheme.  We would ask that parents hear their child read every evening and record this in their child's planner. 


We follow the White Rose Hub maths scheme of work at our school which you can see if you click on the link below:
