Year 1/2

Spring 2022 


We will be taking one giant leap for mankind with our space topic from finding out about the first man on the moon, writing instructions for the aliens to put on their underpants properly to designing and making space buggies. 

As we continue to become confident mathematicians we will applying our knowledge to problem solving and reasoning both in class and in the challenge area.

Our daily phonics sessions will continue as we work hard to make sure we apply our phonic knowledge to our reading and writing. 

In R.E we will be exploring the Jewish religion particularly the festival of Shabbat and it's importance to family life.  We will be comparing Judaism to Christianity and looking at similarities through the creation story leading to an understanding of the importance of a day of rest.  We will also be revisiting the Easter story with a focus on Characters, emotions and perspectives  through Jesus and his disciples  at The last supper.

To develop our gymnastics skills we will be working with Cerys, a coach for Tameside gymnastics.  She will be putting us through our paces to develop our balance, co-ordination and rolling skills.  we will also continue to work with the Stockport County coaches who use a multi skills approach to develop our games skills.

Our annual Values week will be the week beginning the 14th February.  The theme this year is making a change. We will look at our core values and investigate how a little bit of love, can have a big impact.  We will be launching the St John's book exchange and reaching out to our local community by creating art work for our local care home.

As we move through the term we will be exploring seasonal changes by looking for signs of spring. We will be investigating plants and their structures and even growing our own salad ingredients.

 On Friday 4th March we will be celebrating world book day by dressing as our favourite book characters or wearing our pyjamas so we are ready for a bedtime story.

 This term also sees our annual Science week where we will become mad scientists, exploring forms of transport on land, sea and air.  

After working 'eggstremely' hard we will be 'eggshausted' and ready for an 'eggsellent' Easter break-Phew!
