Year 1/2 (Air Class)

Welcome to Air Class!

 

‘It’s a wild wonderful world.

Follow your heart and let the adventure unfold’

 

Hello Sunshine!

Welcome back Air Class! I hope you all had a lovely half term in the sun. It is hard to believe that we are now in our last half term before we break up for the Summer Holidays. Luckily, we have some super fun learning to keep us busy.

 

Summer Topic: What a Wonderful World!

Big Question: How do we keep the world wonderful?

Concepts: Belonging, Identify and Diversity

Christian Values: Hope

 

In English we will spend the first few weeks looking at animal poems. We will read, write and perform a range of acrostic, shape and limerick poetry. The next few weeks we will revisit the features of non-chronological reports by planning and writing some reports based on animals. We will also be writing some delicious menus that go alongside our D&T unit and then finish by creating some recounts based on our history unit.

 

In Maths we are going to be investigating capacity and volume. Year 1 will measure and compare different containers using non-standard units of measurement. Year 2 will measure capacity, volume and temperature using standard units of measurement. We will then spend the rest of the half term revisiting all our previous learning by solving problems and applying our understanding.

 

In science we are going to be continuing our unit on animals including humans. Year 1 will investigate fish, amphibians, animal bodies and animal conservation. Year 2 will look closely at animal habitats including woodland, pond, coastal and microhabitats.

 

In history we are going to be finding out about a range of significant individuals throughout history including a range of explorers, inventors and nurses. In D&T we are going to be exploring food from around the world by preparing and making some delicious Italian, Mexican and African treats. In Music we will be going travelling by performing a range of travel themed songs and chants.

 

In RE we will be continuing to read a range of Old Testament stories and discussing the meaning and importance. In PSHE our core theme will be Living in the Wider World. We will be investigating money by exploring where it comes from, how to save money and the difference between wants and needs. We will also be carrying out a set of 3 RSE lessons. In computing we will be surfing the net! by looking at search engines and the importance of internet safety.

 

Please remember:

PE – Every other Monday, Thursday and Friday

Smokey Row – Friday

Spelling Test – Friday

 

I look forward to having a fun half term in the sun

Mrs. Hunt

Children's Mental Health Week 2021 (01.02.21-07.01.21)

From 1-7 February 2021 schools, youth groups, organisations and individuals across the UK will take part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Express Yourself. Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good. It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself. 

Children's Mental Health Week 2021 - Please see the website to give you some lovely ideas. I have also included some resources below to help you support your child at this confusing time.

Below you can see our Remote Learning Gallery that shows just a small handful of all the fantastic learning you have been completing and sending into me. I will be updating this each week on a Friday so keep an eye out for your hard work!
