Year 1/2

Autumn 2023

 Welcome back,

We can't wait to get started on our journey for this year, its going to be a busy one as always with lots of learning and fun activities.

In maths we will be securing our knowledge of number and place value through lots of practical activities, we will be doing lots of counting forwards and backwards and really playing with numbers so we are super confident!

We will be studying the local artist LS Lowry, finding out about his life and trying to recreate his famous matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs.

We will have daily phonics sessions 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 faith and what it means to be a Jew, including where do they worship? and what is their holy book called?

In PE we will be developing our skills in order to apply the to team games.  We will be finding out what we need to do to keep our body fit and healthy.

Our annual healthy schools week will be the week beginning the 25th September, it will kick off with a visit from Freddie Fit.  We will be learning all about how to keep a healthy mind and body.   our focus will be the beginning and end of the day, how to start your day well with a healthy breakfast all the way to winding down to prepare for a good nights sleep.

As part of our science we will be learning all about animals and their young, we will be asking which offspring belong to which animal?

As we move through the term we will be exploring seasonal changes by looking for signs of Autumn.

Our challenge area will be open for business where we can book an appointment at the vets surgery in the roll play area.  We will also be developing our learning in the maths and literacy area through games and fun activities.
