Year 1 & 2 - Bay, Myrtle and Willow classes
Dear Parents and Children,
Welcome to Terms 1 and 2 at Borough Green Primary School, we are looking forward to seeing you all.
Maths: We will be following the topics in the National Curriculum for years 1 and 2. Our topics will be 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 which will include Funny Bones and The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We will also be completing a piece of writing based on a short animation called La Luna.
Science: Our work this term is based on the human body and the senses. We will be naming parts of the skeleton and learning about our five senses.
RE: This term we will begin to look at Judaism including the Jewish festivals. Alongside this, we will continue to learn more about Christianity particularly the Christmas story.
DT and Art: In Design and Technology we will be designing and making a healthy sandwich or salad and designing and creating a Christmas card. In Art we will be completing a self-portrait and studying an artist.
In Computing we will design and make a digital card and learn how to use a digital camera.
Please refer to the school website for additional information regarding the curriculum for Years 1 and 2 such as more detailed medium term plans. We will also be sending home ‘Knowledge Organisers’ which will summarise some of the key information we will be covering. These are a great starting point to discussions with your child about what they have been learning.
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.
Please make sure you send an appropriate coat, hat, gloves depending on the weather.
Mrs Brown, Mrs Wibroe and Mrs Austen
