Autumn Term 2017!

Quick Reminders

  • PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday afternoons - please ensure that children have the correct kit in school. The kit is black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt and trainers or pumps
  • During 'Active Maths', which is first thing in the morning, children must wear pumps or trainers.

 

Topic: This term our class topic is; ‘Coastal Rescue’! We will be learning all about an amazing sea rescuer and how sea rescues have changed over the years. We will be focussing on all things to do with the British Seaside and exploring this topic through our History, Geography, Art and D&T lessons!

 

English: This term, Mrs Bours will be teaching English to some of our class, whilst Ms Challenor will be teaching the other group. This way the children can focus on the outcomes of their individual year groups whilst working at their individual pace of progress and development.

 

Phonics and Spelling: The phonics and spelling groups for Years 1 and 2 will continue to be taught in small groups, allowing for the children to focus on the outcomes of their individual phase at a pace that is achievable to them. Regular sessions will allow the children to gain new skills which they can then apply to reading and writing across the curriculum.  

You may be interested in the website 'PhonicsPlay' if you would like to practise your phonics at home. The website has lots of free games and printable resources, as well as a subscriber area too. Click on the image below if you would like to visit the site!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Science: Taught by Ms Challenor, the main unit of work will be 'Everyday Materials', which includes discovering all about how we can describe different materials, where they come from and what makes the best choice of material to solve various problems! We will be designing and conducting lots of experiments in this unit in order to make scientific discoveries for ourselves. We will also be looking at the changing seasons - can you notice any signs of Autumn creeping in?

 

Maths: In the Autumn Term, Mrs Lord will be teaching Maths to a group, with Ms Challenor teaching the other group. This way the children can focus on the outcomes of their individual year groups whilst working at their pace of progress and development.

 

Computing: We are keen to build on our Computing learning from last year in our lessons this year. This term, you will be focussing on computer skills and e-safety!

 

Homework

All children have their tasks set on a Friday to be handed in on the following Thursday - one piece of English and one Maths.

Children are expected to read at home every night and records kept up-to-date, so children can be monitored when back in school. Please comment in your child’s Reading Record on a daily basis.

Weekly spellings are to be practised at home and then tested on a Friday. Children need to bring their practice sheet back to school.

What do we need to remember to bring to school?

Please make sure you bring your PE kit into school.

Also, remember to bring your reading book every day in order to read in class and to an adult if necessary. You are responsible for putting your reading book in the right reading box so that an adult can check it and help you choose a new book.

 

Here's to another fantastic term from everyone in the Year 1/2 team!
