Year 1 & 2

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


Welcome back to the colder, darker weather.

This term on the ground floor our topic is Let Me Entertain You, and we will be looking at entertainment in its many and varying forms.

In Literacy this week we have been reading Lin Yi’s Lantern by Brenda Williams, as we have been looking at China for our International Evening theme.  We have been creating our own Chinese market stalls based on the story and invited the children from Reception to come and buy our wares!

We will also be writing letters to persuade people to visit the circus, thinking about the power of 3 and how that helps with our persuasive writing, and the circus will be the theme for Science this terms; we will be looking at materials and experimenting what would be best to make a big top tent from and why.

In DT we will be designing and creating our own felt hand puppets, and for ICT we will learn about early computer games, and may get the chance to test these out.  Can you remember any – Pong, Tetris, PacMan, Sonic…?!

Later in the term we will be visiting St. James’ Church at Blackheath Standard where we will experience a hands-on retelling of the Christmas story.

In Numeracy, we will be mainly looking at fractions, doubling and halving.

Christmas play rehearsals will also be starting over the next few weeks!
