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:

Our Unit of Work ~
"Superheroes"

Our topic this term is called 'Superheroes'.

We'll describe out favourite superheroes, read a range of comic books and write our own. Learning about real-life heroes from local organisations and from the past- Florence Nightingale, will allow us to appreciate human bravery. As part of this project, we'll explore out senses of smell, touch, taste, hearing and sight.  We'll also test our superpowers by climbing, running, jumping and moving to music. There'll be opportunities for us to create superhero works of art and to compose superhero soundtracks on percussion instruments.

Science

In Science we will be learning about the different parts of our body and the five senses. We will also be carrying out a super stretchy investigation using our predicting and measuring skills.

RE

We will be exploring signs and symbols in religion and linking them to heroes from the Bible. 

Physical Education

In Games we are going to be practicing our throwing and catching skills.  Indoor PE will be gymnastics.

PSHE

We will be working on the unit called 'New Beginnings'.

Rights Respecting Schools

This term we will be working on article 3- The best interests of the child must be a top priority in all decisions and actions that affect children.
