Welcome to Year 1 and 2
Our topic this term is:
We’re going on an adventure!
Our topic this term is called ‘Adventure’.
In Literacy, we will be exploring many adventure stories, including favourites such as ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’, ‘The Tales of Peter Rabbit’ and ‘The Gruffalo’ which will help us to write our own adventure stories. We will also be reading Information books about some famous explorers, and the places that they explored which will help to inform our recounts and factual writing.
In Numeracy, we will be learning about Number and Place Value, Addition and Subtraction.
In Science, we will be exploring different natural and man-made materials and their properties, and using this information to help us decide which material would be best to make an outfit for an explorer to wear in DT.
In computing, the children will be learning about Painting (Y1) and Computer Art (Y2). We will be finding out about Hindus in RE and learning about some of the Hindu customs, and traditional Autumn festivals.
In music, we will be learning about the different percussion instruments and using them to compose music to accompany an adventure story.
The children will be making observational drawings of different materials in Art, and will design and make a 3D environment inside a shoebox.
We really look forward to working with you all this year.
Mrs Chapman and Mrs McPherson
