YEAR 1 & 2
Welcome to year 1 & 2!
This half term in English we will be looking at the texts ‘The Gingerbread Men’ and ‘Can’t you sleep little bear?’ We will continue to use our talk for writing approach by creating story maps to help remember a story, then adapt them to create our own unique versions.
In Maths we will be practicing to read and write numbers to 100 and use lots of practical resources to help us learn how numbers can be represented and partitioned in a range of ways.
In Science we will be covering the topics Seasonal Change and plants. We will learn about the four seasons and the weather associated with each one. We will also learn about the basic structure of plants and begin to identify and name common UK trees and flowers.
In History, we will be looking at changes within living memory. We will explore how we change from babies to adults and the different toys that we play with as we grow.
In Geography the children will be introduced to Continents and Oceans and also begin to locate and name UK countries and their capital cities.
In Art we will start by looking at some of the basic key skills. We will explore shape, line and colour and how they are used when painting and drawing.
In DT, the children will be focusing on mechanisms and they will have fun creating the own pictures with a moving mechanism to accompany the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty. Look out for our very colourful and bright designs!
In RE we will be looking at what Christians believe God is like and in Hinduism we will explore where they go to worship and their practices.
