Teacher: Mrs. Tillat

Teaching assistant: Miss Dative

 

Here is a quick insight into the type of things that we will be learning about during Spring 2:

Literacy - This half term, we are basing all of our Literacy work around the topic ‘Space’  and we will be looking at the following texts; ‘The first hippo to the moon’, ‘Toys in space’ and ‘Whatever next’.  We will be exploring interesting vocabulary, writing a sentence, making inferences and writing a retell of a story. We will be focussing on how to compose, say, a sentence before writing it. We will continue to cover the year 1 writing objectives, focusing on sentence writing and including punctuation. We will be exploring writing a character description and creating a story map to help write our own story’.

Phonics and Reading – Within phonics we will be continuing to learn phase 3 and phase 5 sounds. We will be practising how to sound out and blend words for reading and blend and segmenting words for writing. Within our reading sessions, we will be exploring the meaning of new vocabulary, predicting what might happen in the text and discussing what is happening in the story as well as relating this to our own experiences and ideas.

Maths - During Spring 2 will be focusing on the unit ‘place value within 20’ and ‘place value within 50’.  We will be exploring numbers within 50 by counting objects, representing objects and representing a number of objects. We will be looking using tens and ones to represent a number.  We will have lots practical activities when we explore and learn all of the objectives listed above.

 

History and Geography - Our topic this half term is ‘Space’. We will be linking this to the past and thinking about space travel and significant individuals including Neil Armstrong and Brain Cox. We will specifically look at key dates that were involved in the moon landing. We will link this to our geography lessons by exploring plants and the planet Earth, looking at hot and cold areas of the world and then going on to explore seasonal and weather patterns of the UK.

 

Religious Education -  Over Spring 2, our topics will be ‘Meals’ and ‘Change’. Within the topic ‘Meals’ children will explore the story of the ‘last supper’ as well as learning the ‘Our Farther’ prayer and learning about what happens during communion time and how the parish family gathers for celebration at mass. Within the topic ‘Change’ we will explore their experience and feelings about changing and say what they wonder about the way change happens. They will learn about and recognise the story of Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday and some religious signs and symbols of Ash Wednesday. Children will recognise and learn that people will use the opportunity of Lent to change and make a new start.

Science 'Materials'

Our first science topic is ‘Materials’. We will be naming  different everyday materials and exploring the objects around our classroom to identify which materials they were made from. We will then think about which materials are natural and which are  man made. Within further lessons we will explore the properties of some of the materials and make predictions.

Art and Design- Our topic this half term is ‘Space’, we will be using specialist watercolour paints to create washes using watercolours to represent space/sky colours and go on to paint plants and stars in detail

 

 

Here is a quick insight into the type of things that we will be learning about during Autumn 1 :

Literacy - This half term, we are basing all of our Literacy work around the topic ‘Toys’  and we will be looking at the following texts; ‘The teddy robber’ and ‘No-Bot’.  We will be exploring interesting vocabulary, writing a sentence, making inferences and writing a retell of a story. We will be focussing on how to compose, say, a sentence before writing it. We will continue to cover the year 1 writing objectives, focusing on sentence writing and punctuation.

Phonics and Reading – Within phonics we will be continuing to learn phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. We will be practising how to sound out and blend words for reading and blend and segmenting words for writing. Within our reading sessions, we will be exploring the meaning of new vocabulary, predicting what might happen in the text and discussing what is happening in the story as well as relating this to our own experiences and ideas.

 

Maths  - During Autumn 1, we will be focusing on the unit ‘place value within 10’. We will be exploring numbers within 10 by sorting objects, counting objects, representing objects and representing a number of objects. We will also be counting forwards and backwards, finding one more than a number, finding one less than a number and looking at ordinal numbers. We will have lots practical activities when we explore and learn all of the objectives listed above.

Science 'Materials'

Our first science topic is ‘Materials’. We will be naming  different everyday materials and exploring the objects around our classroom to identify which materials they were made from. We will then think about which materials are natural and which are  man made. Within further lessons we will explore the properties of some of the materials and make predictions.

 History and Geography - Our topic this half term is ‘Toys’. We will be linking this to the past and thinking about what toys looked like in the past. We will then look specifically at Victorian toy and Victorian dolls. We will then go on to look briefly at the Victorian time and learn about Queen Victoria. We will link this to our geography lessons and look at where Queen Victoria lived. We will also look at maps of the world and locate the United Kingdom on a map, and then we will go on to name the four countries of the United Kingdom and their capital cities.

Religious Education - Over Autumn 1, our topics will be ‘Families’ and ‘Belonging’. We will explore what it means to be part of a family, who is part of our own family and what it means to be a part of God’s family. Some key questions that we will explore are:

  • Who might be in a family?
  • How are families different?
  • How do they show love and care for each other?
  • What things do families do together?

 

During this topic we will learn how Baptism enables people to belong to God’s family in a special way. As part of our topic ‘Belonging’, we will explore the following questions:

 
  • How can we help others to feel they belong?
  • What does it feel like to belong?
  • How can we help others to feel they belong?
