I am very sad not to be teaching you in school this week, but I know we will all make the most of this situation we find ourselves in. Hopefully the week will fly by and we’ll soon be back in school together!

Here’s how this week will work:

  • Each day I will write a note ,which will be posted on Seesaw, with all the learning for that day on it and any links etc you need.

  • There will be a daily zoom lesson at 10am each morning. I hope you can join these most days as it will help explain the day’s learning.

  • There will be three assemblies (Mon, Wed and Fri) you can join in with too. They are all at 2:45pm the codes can be found below.

As always, please don't hesitate  to contact me with any questions or issues during the week via seesaw or emailing the school office. Thank you in anticipation of your support. Mrs Hudson :)

Curriculum Information

 

English- 

For the first two weeks we will be continuing our class book 'The Last Wolf' by Mini Grey. The book explores animals which have become extinct. Children will be taking part in persuasive writing activities before writing speeches persuading either for or against the reintroduction of wolves, lynxes and bears to the U.K. After this, we will use Roald Dahl's book 'The Magic Finger'. Within this unit children will have the opportunity to write for a variety purposes including: a letter to the girl, asking questions, persuasive letter to the Greggs, diary entries, information poster about native birds, collaborative poem about the joys of flying and narrative sequel to the story. 

 

Phonics

Year 1- We will be continuing Phase 5 part b where will we be learning lots of new alternative sounds. 

Year 2- The children will be continuing with their learning of Phase 6. 

 

Maths

Year 1- In Year 1 we will be learning about : Mass, Shape and Space, Number and Addition and Subtraction strategies. 

 

Year 2- In Year 2 we will be learning about: Column Addition and Subtraction, Fact Families, Word Problems, Number and Number Patterns, Volume and Position and Direction. 

 

Science

Year 1- Changing Seasons- In this unit children will learn that there are four seasons, the names for these seasons and that there are differences between them. They will identify and design weather symbols for the different types of weather they are likely to experience across the seasons. Working scientifically, children will make observations and measurements over time throughout the seasons including day length, temperature, rain/snow fall, wind strength, cloud conditions and the accompanying changes to plants and animals in their local environment. They will describe and record their findings and compare them across the seasons.

 

Year 2- Feeding and Exercise- In this 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. Children will have been able to use ideas about feeding and exercise to learn about ways we need to look after ourselves to stay healthy. They will demonstrate understanding by making a diet and exercise plan and will have considered food safety and hygiene guidelines. 

 

Topic

Our new topic 'Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!' will focus on developing the children's Geography skills. Children will be naming and locating the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world on maps and in atlases. They will also be looking in detail at human and physical coastal features with a closer study on Blackpool. The children will be looking at the work of local artist Helen Bradley and recreating some of their own pictures in a similar style.

R.E.

This half term the children will be studying the story of Joseph from the Old Testament. They will explore the story in detail  about Joseph's dreams, his time as a prisoner, his relationship with his brothers, his time as a ruler and of course his wonderful coat of many colours.  

 

P.E.

This term, P.E. will take place on Thursdays with our sports coach and Fridays with Mrs Hudson. Children will be focusing on Athletics. Once again, children are asked to come into school on Thursdays and Fridays wearing their P.E kits. Please make sure your child dresses appropriately for the weather as ,unless it is raining, children will usually do P.E outside.

 

Thank you for your help and support,

 

Mrs Hudson, Mrs Shivnan-Taylor, Mrs Bates and Mrs Nuttall
