Welcome to Year 1 and 2
In our class we work together as a team and all look after each other. The staff in year 1 and 2 are always here to help, so please do not hesitate to come and see me either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.
The children will take part in RE lessons each week.
This term our themes are:
Treasures - God's treasure: the world
Children will also take part in collective worship daily.
In Maths this term we will be learning about:
In English this term we will be learning about:
Each morning the children will take part in a phonics lesson. This term the children are learning and revising letters and sounds from Phase 5. Children are also learning the different spelling rules.
Our Science topic is Everyday Materials - Exploring Changes!
The children will be able to identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses. They will also find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.
History is our focus this term. Our Topic is called 'Rule Britannia!'. We will be learning about the lives of famous people who have had a significant impact on our lives. We will also look at some local historical events and places. Our main focus is going to be on castles.
We will spend time in the computer room each week and our topic is Creating Pictures.
Our topic in DT this half term is Food Technology. We will make designing, making and evaluating fruit kebabs.
P.E will be every Wednesday and Thursday and the children will come to school in their PE kits. They do not need to bring a change of clothes with them.
Each child will be provided with their own homework book. The children will have a spelling test every Monday morning and will receive new spellings after their test. Their spellings will be stuck into their homework book and there will be space provided for them to practise in. Homework will be set occasionally on top of spellings to help consolidate learning which is taking place in class.
The children will read in class individually at least once a week and we will monitor their colour bands regularly. We encourage the children to read as much as possible and in class we have a superhero reward system to help. Children will move their own superhero up the ladder if they read three times a week or more at home. Please remember to sign and date their reading diaries and send this into school daily. If your child reads regularly and finishes their book before it is due to be changed, we are more than happy to send home new books.
Thank you for your continued support!
