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:

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 ~
"Towers, Tunnels and Turrets"

Our topic this term is called 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets'. Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there's a whole world of adventure and fun to be found!

Put on your coat and wellies and let’s head outside on a mini beast hunt.

This term, we'll learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we'll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We'll learn about the story of Rapunzel and create models inspired by the story. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We'll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and improve our PE skills by playing attacking and defending games. 

 

Rights Respecting Schools

This term we will be working on article 30. Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family, whether or not these are shared by the majority of people in the country where they live.
