Larkspur Community Primary School

Growing Towards Tomorrow

Key Stage 1 – Beech

Welcome to Mrs Arkless' Classroom

I have been teaching at Larkspur Primary since 2003 and I still love it!  I have the pleasure of having a mixed Year 1/2 class this year. Although this will be a challenge, I thrive on challenges and am looking forward to great learning this year. 

Key Stage 1 have the benefit of having two classrooms this year.  We have our base room where we meet together for main teaching and we have our Busy Bee Classroom in which we do independent jobs.  The Busy Bee room is well resourced with different areas so that we can learn about topics that interest us and practise skills that we have have been taught.  




Spring 1 Term

This half term we are reading The Tunnel by Anthony Browne.  This is our focus book for our Talk 4 Writing project.  We will dramatise it, imitate it using a text map and create our own suspense stories too.

When we arrived at school after the holidays there was a long tunnel in our classroom. We anxiously crawled through it. Luckily we all came out at the other end!

We had great fun making up the actions to the text map.
