Year 1/2

Autumn Term 2020

A huge welcome back to school – it is so lovely to have everyone back in the building again!  The children have already settled into their new normal and are ready and raring to go for some learning challenges.

In Maths, we will revisit our counting skills and will be using our developing knowledge of place value to compare and order numbers and to solve addition and subtraction problems.

Our English work has been kick started with a visitor to Key Stage One - we have been excited by the arrival of the Love Monster, who is just as keen as the children to be a super St Johnner.  We are already making plans to show him the many things that make us special.  With healthy Lifestyle Week approaching, we are getting excited about introducing Love Monster to Freddy Fit and teaching him all about maintaining a healthy body and mind.

Health through history will be the focus of our learning following Healthy Lifestyle Week, as we travel back in time to see the impact Florence Nightingale had on the survival of wounded soldiers in the Crimean war. How did the Lady with the Lamp transform nursing?

In RE this half term, we will look at stories from the Bible, using drama to re-enact them and to gain a better understanding of the thoughts, feelings and motives of the characters involved. We will explore several parables, thinking about the messages that Jesus was giving.

PE will be on Thursdays this term, with the experts from Stockport County training us in multi-skills. We are asking that the children come to school dressed for PE outdoors as we will be trying to get as much fresh air as possible! 


Thank you for your continued support,


The Key Stage One Team
