Year 1 & 2

Welcome to our learning in year 1 & 2 - Autumn 1


Welcome into Year 1 for all of last year’s Reception children – and a big well done to everyone in Year 2 for setting such a fantastic example to the younger members of the class!

This term on the ground floor our topic is Rainforests.



In Literacy, we will be looking at the painting Surprised!, by Henri Rousseau, and will produce pieces of descriptive writing based around the picture; we will look at describing words and think about the five senses.

In Numeracy, we will be mainly looking at place value and what we know about numbers; we will also look at addition.

For Geography, we will be looking at rainforests – learning about the people and the animals that live there, and where in the world they are.  In Art, we will be producing work based on animal patterns.
