Phonics and literacy
A priority this year is Reading. It is important that ALL children read at least 3 times each week as this is crucial to their development across the whole curriculum. Please listen to your child read and ask them a few simple questions on what they have read to check their understanding. If you need any support with questionning please ask your child's teacher.
We are also working on number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. 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 and some will know pairs to 100.
Each class has two sessions of PE a week – one inside and one outside.
Term 1 and 2 outdoor PE as follows:
1S - Indoor Wednesday, Outdoor Thursday
1T - Indoor Friday, Outdoor Monday
1/2A - Indoor Friday, Outdoor Monday
2K - Indoor Monday, Outdoor Wednesday
2D - Indoor Wednesday, Outdoor Thursday
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.
Library sessions - Each week we will have access to the school library. Children may borrow books to read at home.
Our Work ~
In Geography we will be looking at the local area and creating a route map based on aerial views. The children will study human and physical features around the local area and design and add their own symbols to a map.
In Art we will look at an artist, Kandinsky, and study his life and work. We will investigate how to draw with different materials such as pencils, crayons and paint and use these new skills to create our own Art in the style of Kandinsky.
In Learning for Life we are thinking about the relationships we have as individuals and how our actions impact on the lives of others.
In PE we are learning how to correctly throw and catch using a variety of different PE equipment. We will study dance as our indoor PE for the term.
In Science we are looking at animals including humans and we will focus on animals and their young, naming and looking at the differences in them. We will introduce the fact that animals eat different things and this helps to put them into different categories.
In computing we will consider online-safety and how to keep safe when we are online.
