Term 2

Term 2 is always a busy one in Year 1. There is much excitement as we get closer to Christmas with Christmas plays, Christmas lunch, Christmas parties and Christmas crafts. This year the Owls will be doing their Christmas play with the Kingfishers. Information regarding lines to be learnt and costumes will be sent home during the coming weeks.


As well as all of our Christmas fun we also have lots of other learning to do too!


In English we start the term with a unit on instruction writing. We will be basing our instructions on the story Pumpkin Soup. We will look at the features a good set of instructions needs before we have a go at writing our own. We will be focusing on writing simple sentences using the correct punctuation and remembering to include finger spaces.


In Maths we will be furthering our understanding of place value in numbers using part whole models and we will also be looking at addition and subtraction within 10.


In our History learning we are going to work like historians to answer the question How have toys changed since our Grandparents were young? We will be looking at how toys have changed over the past 80 years. We will talk about how to recognise if a toy is old or new and if we still play with same toys as our grandparents. If so, we will look at how these toys have changed and reasons for those changes.  


In Science we will be thinking about everyday materials and talking about the different materials objects are made from and the properties of these materials. We will carry out some investigations to find the best material to do a certain job. 


In R.E. we will be answering the question Why does Christmas matter to Christians? This unit focuses on the Christmas story told in Luke's Gospel where it is the shepherds who visit Jesus in the stable.
