Spring Term 2
Just a few quick reminders:
Reading and spelling in Year 1/2
A reading book and reading diary is given to each child at the beginning of the year. Please listen to your child read as much as possible and record this in your child’s reading diary. Reading books will be changed once a week on a Thursday.
In year 1/2 the children have a spelling test each Monday, please ensure your child has their spelling book in on that day.
Homework: Homework tasks will be given out on Friday and then returned before the following Friday.
Our topics this term:
Every week the children will participate in RE lessons. We follow the 'Come and See' programme and will be focusing on Lent- Change.
The children will also be learning traditional prayers like the Hail Mary and Our Father alongside their class prayers.
Children will take part in collective worship daily and will begin to take ownership of planning and leading aspects of collective worship. The children will also help plan the rejoice part of our learning and will plan and lead the celebration for this.
MATHS- We are focusing on measure, time and capacity currently and then will be moving on to addition and subtraction.
Year one have a phonics input daily, revisiting phase 3 and 5 sounds. Year two will continue to learn different spelling patterns and begin to spell following those patterns.
In English, we are looking at instructions and discussing our favourite toys. We will then be writing our own set of instructions.
In design technology we will be looking at moving pictures using traditional tales as our theme.
In Science our topic is all about plants- looking at the parts of a plant and planting our own seeds.
In Computing, we will be continuing to use Purple Mash software. We will be using 2Code to perform basic algorithms.
The Year 1/2 staff are always there to help and talk to you over any concerns before and after school. If there is a problem and the teacher isn’t available, ring the school secretary and book an appointment, it will be dealt with quickly.
We look forward to working with you over the year in supporting your child making the most progress through their learning journey.
