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:

1/2S: Monday (Indoor) and Thursday(Outdoor)
2K: Monday (Indoor) and Thursday(Outdoor)

Please make sure that the children have the correct kit for their lesson:
Indoor PE: shorts, t-shirt and bare feet in the hall
Outdoor PE: Shorts, t-shirt and trainers (in warm weather).  Jogging bottoms, t-shirt, jumper and trainers (in cold weather).

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 ~
"Moon"

Our topic this term is called 'Moon Zoom'.

We’ll travel through space to learn about the Solar System. We’ll investigate an alien crash site, write an incident report and try to find the aliens who have landed. We’ll design spaceships and rockets and test them. Books and photographs will help us to learn about the first lunar landing and the astronauts who venture into space. Floor robots will be programmed to move around. We’ll also explore satellite images and investigate rockets.

 

Science

Our topic kicks off with a visit to the Science Observatory.

Physical Education

In Games we are going to be working with the sports coaches.  Indoor PE will be gym.

Rights Respecting Schools

This term we will be working on article 9. Children must not be separated from their parents against their will unless it is in their best interests (for example, if a parent is hurting or neglecting a child). Children whose parents have separated have the right to stay in contact with both parents, unless this could cause them harm.
