Year 1 & 2 - Bay, Myrtle and Willow classes
Dear Parents and Children,
Welcome to Terms 5 and 6 at Borough Green Primary School.
Maths: We will be continuing to follow the topics in the National Curriculum for years 1 and 2. Our topics will include Number and Place Value, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Measures (including money and time) and Data Handling, Fractions and Shape.
Literacy: This term we are exploring texts that relate to our new Learning Experiences and will include a selection of pirate stories and traditional tales. As part of our Learning experience called Let’s Go Safari we will explore the stories of The Tiny Seed and Jodie’s Beans. We will also continue to use The Write Stuff approach in our Writing.
Science: Our work this term is based on naming common animals and plants and classifying them.
History: In our experience called We Do Like to be Beside the Seaside, we will be comparing the seaside today with the seaside of the past.
RE: This term we will return to looking at Christianity. We will focus on reading and interpreting stories from the Bible and the work that Jesus did.
Art: In Art we will be telling stories through Art. We will also create seascapes and begin to learn how to draw animals.
In Computing we will design an e-book and learn a little more about programming.
Please refer to the school website for additional information regarding the curriculum for Years 1 and 2.
All Year 1 and 2 classes will have outdoor PE on a Wednesday. Please make sure that your child has a named PE kit in school at all times. Hair must be tied back and earrings removed. I would just remind parents/carers that staff are not able to remove and replace earrings.
Year 1 and 2 will be resuming swimming lessons in Term 5. More details will follow.
Mrs Brown, Mrs Wibroe and Mrs Austen
