Welcome to Year 1 and 2
Our topic this term is:
Our topic this term is called ‘Celebrations’.
We are starting with the history and meaning behind our modern Bonfire Night and Guy Fawkes.
Then we move on to find out how other cultures celebrate with festivals of light and as part of finding out about Diwali we will create clay lights and make some food treats. While we are learning about the stories behind these traditions we will be reading and writing biographies, information leaflets, instructions, poetry and lots more.
Maths this term will start with our year 2 children, learning that multiplication is all about repeat addition. There are lots of fun ways we will be investigating and learning how numbers are made. Our Year 1 children will be finding out how numbers to 20 can be 'played with'; making numbers in different ways. By Christmas we will investigate length and mass (weight) with some Christmas touches.
We have Science activities working out how different materials can change how they look and can be used; twisted, reflect and so much more...
All these different things will be completed by our Christmas celebrations. It's going to be a fun-filled time for us all!
