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:

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 ~
"Street Detectives"

Our topic this term is called 'Street Detectives'.

Grab a magnifying glass, put on your deerstalker and change your name to Sherlock because we're going to become street detectives!

This half term, we'll follow a route around our local streets and take pictures of the buildings, businesses and plants we can see. Talking to residents about the area will help us understand how the local community could be improved. We'll write persuasive adverts, look at photographs to spot similarities and differences between houses and shops of today and the past, find out about the history of our school and talk to former pupils about their experiences. We'll also study and draw maps, draw portraits of the people we have met and look at the work of urban artists. 

 

 

Rights Respecting Schools

This term we will be working on article 39. Children who have experience neglect, abuse, exploitation, torture or who are victims of war must receive special support to help them recover their health, dignity, self-respect and social life.
