Term 2

‘Ice Explorers’ 

Welcome back to term two. We all hope you had a lovely and restful half term. 

In Y1&2, this term, we will be learning all about ‘Ice Explorers’. In English, over the course of the term the children will be using the Polar Express as our key text. We will be focusing on story writing skills and thinking about how to create description and imagery in their writing. As we move towards Christmas, we will also be looking at non-fiction writing including writing a letter to Father Christmas! 

Our Geography based topic will focus on learning about the different continents, the similarities, and differences of hot and cold climates. In D.T we will be creating our own Polar Trains using a wheel and axle system.

Term 1

‘Into the woods…’

Welcome to term one of Y1&2- it is so lovely to be able to welcome all the children back! This term is very exciting as it is the first time, we are teaching this topic which is called ‘Into the woods…’. This term our learning is based upon the text ‘Fox’ by Margret Wild and Ron Brooks. We will be kicking off our learning with an exciting team building day, thinking about how collaborate with each other and help each other.

The key to this terms learning is finding similarities and differences between life in the city and life in a woodland area. We will be particularly looking at Ashdown Forest, the home of Winnie the Pooh.  In science we will be learning about different habitats and explore the outside classroom as much as possible. In Art, we will be looking at colour mixing and how to create different shades and textures.
