Welcome to Year 1 and 2
This half term in topic we are covering the unit Up, Up and Away. We will be looking at the history of flight and finding out about the Wright brothers. We will also be looking at the moon landing and learning about Neil Armstrong as a famous historical figure. We will be linking our topic to science where we will be researching materials and carrying out experiments for making objects fly and materials that will make a good space suit! I wonder if we will be holidaying in space when we are older?! We will be enriching our topic work with lots of super stories linked to space and flight so hopefully your children will come home and share some stories with you.
It is brilliant to see comments from parents in reading diaries, please keep this up each night. If your child has reached the end of their book please make a note in their diary . We can then ensure a new book comes home. If we do not have this message from you we will not change their book.
P.E. will take place on Monday and Friday for both classes so make sure kit is in school at all times. Can we remind you that if your child has their ears pierced and they cannot take their studs out they must bring tape to cover them for P.E. lessons.
There are three different groups each morning for literacy and maths taught by Mrs Shovlin, Mrs Graham and Mrs Walker/Mrs Bouch. We hope your child enjoys talking to you about what they are up to in these lessons and their homework each week will help you see.
Homework will be given out each Wednesday and needs to be back in school by the following Monday. It will consist of spellings and a maths task as well as daily reading of their reading book.
Finally, the second half of the Autumn term means we start to focus on... Christmas!! The children will be learning the songs ready for our play so be ready to start singing along!!
As always if you need to speak to any of the key stage one team you can catch us each morning and night.
Here's to a great half term!
We had a wonderful time at The Museum of Military Life. Take a look at our photographs.
