Maths

A big focus within Year 1/2 this year is number bond knowledge. By the end of Year 1 the children should know the number pairs that equal 10 by heart and by the end of Year 2 the children should know the number pairs that equal 20 by heart.

Below are links to two documents showing what children should know and be able to do in maths by the end of Year 1 and 2:

During all PE lessons, children need to have long hair tied back and earrings removed.  It is school policy not to tape over earrings, they must be removed by the children themselves, adults cannot help them with this.

Our Unit of Work ~
"Rio de Vida"

Our topic this term is called 'Rio de Vida'.

We will be composing carnival poetry, creating vibrant dances and play carnival rhythms. We will study maps and globes to locate Brazil and decide what it would be like to live there. As we learn more about Brazil, we'll explore famous legends and scour non-fiction books for fascinating facts. Reflecting on what we have learnt we about Brazilian culture, we'll think about celebrations in different parts of the world and decide why people celebrate.

Science

In Science, we will be looking at Sound. We will be learning about how we hear and vibrations through practical activities.

Physical Education

In Games we are going to be practicing our football skills.  Indoor PE will be dance.

 

Rights Respecting Schools

This term we will be working on article 7 in more detail. All children have the right to a legally registered name, and nationality. Also, the right to know and, as far as possible, to be cared for by their parents.
