Year 1/2 Butterflies

Welcome back Butterflies! 

Mrs Hinde and myself cannot wait to welcome you all back after a lovely break smiley


Below you will find lots of information about all the exciting things and the different topics we are learning this half term.


Our topic focus this term is 'All Creatures Big and Small'.



In English this term the children's Talk for Writing focus will be 'Kassim and the Greedy Dragon'.



In Maths this term we will be focusing on Shape and Money.  


Please continue to use Numbots and TT Rockstars as this really helps. 



In Science this term we will be looking at Animals Including Humans. In this unit children will be able to notice that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults. They will be able to find out about and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air). They will also be able to describe the importance for humans to exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food and hygiene. 




This term we will be focusing on our topic  'All Creatures Big and Small'. By the end of this unit children will have a clear understanding of different countries around the world and where certain animals are originally from. Children will be able to locate and name the seven continents while being able to relate it to the Earth’s Equator. Children will also learn about animals in different seasons focusing on how different animals react e.g. winter coats, hibernating, migrating, laying eggs and raising babies.





Within RE we will be asking the question: 'Who is a Christian and what do they believe?'.



In Computing we will be looking at Pictograms.



PSHE lessons will cover the theme - Heathly Me.




Within DT we will be creating our own moving minibeast pictures. 



PE will be on Monday and Tuesday, so please ensure they come in their PE kit. PE kit consists of plain white t-shirt, plain black shorts and trainers.



Spellings will be handed out on a Friday to practise for the following Friday. Please continue to use Spelling Shed and Numbots to support at home. Reading books will be changed every Monday but please ensure you bring your reading book and record everyday. 


If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask myself or Mrs Hinde.
