Year 1 & 2

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


Welcome back to the brighter half of the Spring Term – it’s nice to see so many beautiful flowers peeping through over in the Pleasaunce!

This term on the ground floor, our topic is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and we will be learning all about the many different forms of transport, culminating in an exciting trip to the London Transport Museum.  For Geography, we will be looking at transport around the world; how it differs from our own, and how it is the same.  We will also be looking at ways to get around London.

For Literacy, during World Book Week, we will be looking at the books of Julia Donaldson, in particular The Snail and the Whale, by Julia Donaldson, about which we will be writing book reviews.  We will also be writing letters to persuade people to walk or cycle to school.  We will also be writing a train journey description, and reading How to Win a Monster Race.  We will also be writing recounts of our trip.

In Numeracy, we will be looking at fractions, division, money, and problem solving; in Spanish we will learn about the weather, and PHSE will focus mainly on families – different kinds of families, what family means to us – as well as looking at Waste Week.  For Waste Week itself, we will be looking at materials, and recycling.

In Art, we will be learning all about printing, and will learn different ways to print in order to make a transport-inspired piece of artwork; we will print with our fingers, potatoes, stamps, and various other items.  We will also be designing and creating our own road safety posters.

For PE, we will be continuing with our weekly run in the Pleasaunce, as well as learning some ball skills, and the beginnings of benchball.
