We will be learning about London both now and at the time of the Great Fire of London. We will write stories and poems about visiting different parts of London, write information about London and learn all about why the Great fire of London is a significant part of history.

In our Design and Technology, we will be investigating wheels and Axels and linking this to London Transport!

In the lead up to Easter we will be finding out more about the Easter Story when we learn more about Christianity.

        Within our Maths we will be looking at shape and fractions whilst also trying to keep up our fluency practise with multiplication and division! 

Our PE day this term will be Monday.

 

Many Thanks, Mrs Dinham & Miss Weber

 

This term our Class Priorities are: 

English: Handwriting

  • Forming lower-case letters of the correct size relative to one another
  • Starting to use some of the diagonal and horizontal strokes needed to join letters and understand which letters, when adjacent to one another, are best left un-joined
  • Writing capital letters and digits of the correct size, orientation and relationship to one another and to lower case letters
  • Using spacing between words that reflects the size of the letters

 

Maths: 

  • Recognise, find, name and write fractions  1/3,  1/4, 2/4  and 3/4  of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity.
  • Write simple fractions for example, 1/2  of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of  2/4 and  1/2. 

 

 

Term 3:  Let’s put Keyham on the map!

 

This term we will be learning about our local area. We will investigate where we go in a week and learn about what maps and photos can tell us about a place. We will learn about the Dockyard and we will go on local walks.

In English we will be writing a fictional story based on the picture book The Storm Whale by Benji Davies and a non-chronological report about Pirates.

In Science we will be learning about different materials and compare their suitability for particular uses.

In Maths our focus will be on multiplication and division, and we will learn about statistics at the end of the term.

In PE we will be developing ball skills and our PE day this term will be Tuesday.

This term we will be learning about cold habitats and linking this with science learning. We will be learning about the animals that live in polar regions and how they survive the cold! In our geography learning we will be looking at where places are located on maps and globes and how that decides their climate. Then within our history learning we will find out about the treacherous journey that Robert Falcon Scott took to Antarctica.

In RE we will be learning why Christmas matters to Christians. As well as this, we will be preparing for the Nativity where we will find out more about the Christmas Story.

Maths - Applying their increasing knowledge of mental and written methods in addition and subtraction.

 

 

 

Term 1: Feeling Hot Hot Hot!

 

This term our learning will be based around The Caribbean, and specifically St Lucia. We will be using our geography knowledge and maps skills to find out more about where it is located in the world, whilst learning about the locations of the continents and the oceans. We will be comparing the climate in St Lucia to ours and making links to our positioning in the world. Also, our science learning will help us find out about the types of habitats and animals found in hot countries.

We will also be looking at the food grown and eaten there, and will be tasting and making some of our own creations!

We will be getting creative too, looking at landscape artists and painting our own Caribbean scenes, listening to and appreciating some Caribbean Reggae music and having a go at a Caribbean dance!

As well as all this, we will be writing our own stories and information texts trying to use all our Year 1 writing skills and learning new Year 2 skills. In maths, we will focus on place value, addition and subtraction!
