Welcome to Willow Class, for our children in Year 1 and Year 2.
We have a very busy and exciting Summer Term planned! Our topic is ‘Being a Sporting Giant’. We will learn about how the Olympics first began and explore the changes overtime. As well as learning about inspirational sporting heroes, we will also be developing our own athletic skills ready for Sports Day!
As a school, we are also looking forward to celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee with lots of exciting learning and events planned.
In English, we are reading ‘OLYMPIG’. We will be working on writing for a sustained period of time and our editing and improving skills. We shall also have the opportunity to write a persuasive letter and a diary entry.
In maths we are looking at measures, including length, mass and capacity. This is a great topic that allows for lots of practical learning which the children always enjoy. We continue to work on quick recall of times tables and will revisit the four operations through our daily Fluent in 5.
We will be identifying and naming a variety of animals in science and describe and compare their body structures. We will also learn about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Watch this space for some special visitors too!
We are very excited to be continuing with our Forest School sessions – this is a real highlight for children and grown ups!
