At North Featherstone J & I, we follow the Little Wandle Phonic Scheme. Children will read with their teacher three times a week. A new book will go home every Wednesday. 

Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.


Welcome to Elm Class

We have had such a busy start to the year and the children have settled in so well. 

This half term, our topic is 'What is like to live in Shanghai?' We went on an amazing adventure to the Eastern Court restaurant to explore chinese foods. We had so much fun!


Our Trip to the Eastern Court

In our Forest School sessions, we have been building habitats for woodland creatures. This links to our science unit this half term. Mr Pearson asked us to build using the materials that are around us. 

Let Nature be your teacher.” – William Wordsworth

In our Geography lessons, we have explored our school environment as part of our fieldwork. We took our Class Bear on an adventure to find human and physical features. 

In Maths, Elm Class have been learning about Place Value within 10. We have been using different manipulatives to find one more and one less of a given number. We have been exploring the 'greater than', 'less than' and 'equal to' symbol to compare numbers within 10. 


Homework goes out on every Friday. Children need to bring back their books on a Wednesday.
