Book and Learning Review

 

 

Reading

In school the children will also have two guided reading sessions each week. These sessions will provide differentiated teaching of reading and will secure progress by providing opportunities for children to practice their learning. We currently use a breadth of reading schemes including Bug Club books, Oxford Reading Tree, Collins and Big Cat.

Bug Club will be set fortnightly  Logins and passwords can be found in your child's reading record and are the same as last year.

 

Phonics
In the teaching of Phonics we follow the Letters and Sounds programme. Children are taught within differentiated groups for 20 minutes daily.

 

Maths

Year 1- Follow the Maths No Problem approach we will be looking in detail and developing our maths skills in: 

addition and subtraction and word problems.  

 

Year 2- Follow the Maths No Problem approach we will be looking in detail at: 

 3-D shapes, telling the time and fractions.
 

Science

Year 1 will be learning to identify materials this half term.

 

In Year 1  children will have identified and named common types of materials including wood, metal, plastic, rubber, fur, towelling, nylon, wool, sponge, cotton wool, paper, card, brick, ceramics, rock and some liquids and powdered solids. They will have labelled, collected and grouped together objects made from the same material. They will state that different objects can be manufactured from the same materials. They will say why some materials are unsuitable for some objects.

Working scientifically, children will have tested the properties of different liquids. They will have investigated which materials are good to wrap and protect a hollow chocolate object being sent through the post.

 

Year 2 will be learning about Feeding and Exercise this half term.

 

In Year 2 unit children will have described the importance of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food and hygiene. They will have found out about and described the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air) and will have considered what humans need to live. Children will have identified different foods and have classified some of the foods that humans eat by plant or animal origins. Children will have described how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain, and identify and name different sources of food. They will have identified and created a simple food chain.

 

 

Topic

This half term our topic is Queen Elizabeth I. Children will be learning who she was, key events which took place during her reign, and some key events from her personal life. As the half term ends, we will introduce our other monarch Queen Victoria. By the end of the topic children will be completing a comparison between the two Queens.

Reading Books- We will change the children's reading books every Friday. The purpose of the home reading book is to consolidate decoding skills and comprehension and develop fluency and expression. Please read with your child each week, asking them questions about the story, and sign the reading record so we know to give them a new book. Any additional comments in the reading records are welcomed. Bug Club will also be updated every other week.
