Year 1/2 (Air Class)
Welcome to Air Class!
Happy New Year Air class and welcome to 2021!
I want to start by saying I hope you all enjoyed a restful and happy Christmas break and I am really looking forward to seeing you and hearing about your wonderful holidays.
As we start our Spring term we have a few changes. As you know our lovely Mrs. Holman left us at the end of last term so our timetable has changed slightly. I will be teaching you on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning and we are very lucky to have Mrs. Whalley teaching you on a Thursday afternoon and all day Friday. Our PE days will now be Thursday and Friday and every other Monday with Mr. Bell.
We have such an exciting half term ahead!
Spring Topic: Fire, Fire!
Big Question: How does the past affect the future?
Concepts: Forgiveness, change and consequences.
Christian Values: Endurance (Spring Term 1) and Forgiveness (Spring Term 2).
In English we will be spending the first part of the half term reading, writing and performing a wide range of poetry. We will be looking at different forms and features and looking at a range of famous poets from the past and present. The second part of the half term we will be looking at non-fiction writing by creating recounts and newspaper reports based on the events of the Great Fire of London.
In Maths we are going to be continuing to solve problems involving multiplication and division using a range of strategies and resources. Year 1 will then begin to look at comparing and ordering numbers within 100. Year 2 will investigate statistics by creating pictograms, block diagrams, tally charts and tables. We will also be investigating length and height by using non-standard and standard units of measurement. We will finish our half term by investigating 2D and 3D shape.
In Science we are going to be continuing our work from Autumn 1 on Materials. Year 1 will be focussing on the properties and purposes of materials and Year 2 will be focussing on the changing shape of everyday materials. Some fun investigations are to come!
Our foundation focus will be History and Art. We will be finding out about the Great Fire of London, learning about the events, writing timelines and researching Samuel Pepys! In Art we will be getting really creative by drawing and painting a range of Landscapes and Cityscapes based on work by Monet and Van Gogh.
In RE will be talking about the importance of celebrating the New Year by setting goals and giving thanks. In PSHE our core theme is ‘Relationships’. We will be thinking about what makes a healthy relationship and expressing our emotions and feelings in appropriate ways. In computing we will be using search engines and talking about the importance of online safety.
We have a jam packed first part of the Spring term! I can’t wait to get started.
