Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Welcome to Class Two
Here is an overview of the curriculum our children will be covering this year.
Posted: Nov 6, 2019 by: Alice Hall (a.hall) on: Year 1 Blog
This term, our topic will be Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. We will learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we’ll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We’ll learn the stories of Rapunzel, The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff and create models inspired by them. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We’ll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and improve our PE skills by playing attacking and defending games.
Your child will have a new homework grid in their homework book that relates to the new topic we will be doing over the next half term. Please only complete one homework task each week, so that the grid will last the whole half term.
Your child will also have a new My Maths task to complete every week which will be added to their login on a Friday. If you are having any problems with logging on please let me know.
Please remember that your child will be doing P.E. on a Monday and Wednesday and will need their PE kit in school. Please can they bring with them P.E trousers, shorts, white top, jumper and trainers. This will allow us to have P.E. indoors and outdoors.
As the cold weather begins to creep in we ask that your child comes to school every day with a coat so they can be ready for whatever the weather.
