Introduction to Year 1 & 2

Year 1 & Year 2




Year 1 and 2 Spring Term Newsletter 2018.

Dear Parents,

Our topic for this term is Frozen Planet. We will be drawing, painting and using collage to create Arctic scenes. In Geography we will be looking at world maps, identifying the continents and comparing the climate in the coldest parts of the world to our own.

In RE we will be comparing Hindu and Christian religions, finding out about Chinese New Year and retelling the Easter Story.

English spelling, phonics, guided reading and grammar will be on going weekly throughout the term. We will be discussing, sequencing and writing character studies about characters from Ice Age.

Please carry on reading with your child on a regular basis, writing the page number or if they need to change their book in the Home/ School contact book.

Spellings are linked to the phonics and Get Spelling scheme and are given out on a Monday to be tested the following Monday.

Homework reinforces the learning from the week and is given out on a Friday to be completed by the following Thursday.

PE will usually be on a Thursday, but other sessions may be running throughout the week so please ensure a full PE kit is in school every day. Swimming continues every other Friday.

If you have any questions or queries please come in to see me or write in your child’s H/S contact book.

Tabby Goddard.
