We are a year 1/2 class with 28 children. Each week our learning consists of reading, writing, maths and topic. Alongside this R.E, P.E and computing make up the weekly curriculum. P.E takes place twice a week on either a Wednesday or Friday. Pupils are expected to bring in appropriate P.E kit on a Monday, which should include a t-shirt, shorts/joggers and trainers or daps.
Homework will be given out weekly on a Friday which will include reading to an adult, a maths and literacy based activity as well as a larger project which can be completed over the duration of a term. Children do not have to complete all of these activities everyweek but instead have the option to choose something which sparks their own interest (however if a child wants to complete more than one activity this is certainly encouraged!) Homework should be returned by Thursday so that it can be marked.
Our pupils enjoy learning and we love inspiring them to learn more, but we can only do that with help from home. Please listen to your child read at least three times a week and encourage them to complete their homework. If you have any questions please ask Mrs Frohlich, Mrs Collicott or Miss Winters. Additionally, please ensure you are signed up to Class Dojo to ensure you are receiving class and school updates. This is also an effective way to contact your child's class teacher.
The subject focus for this topic is geography and science. The children will be introduced to this topic by discovering a lost alien within the school grounds. The children will complete map work this term consisting firstly of the school grounds before looking further afield to the country of Brazil. Whilst exploring and mapping the school grounds, the children will also be finding and identifying plants near our school.
In literacy, children have been put into groups which challenge and support their learning in reading, writing, spelling and comprehension. Children may have a different teacher for this portion of the day. Groups will be rotated termly therefore children will likely be taught by all teachers at some point during the year.
In maths this term, we will start by focussing on number and place value, before moving onto addition and subtraction. Measuring will also feature this term as the children record their heights at the start of year 1 or 2.
