Welcome to Year 1/2
Miss Daley- Teacher Mrs Bull -Teaching Assistant
Up, up and away
We cannot wait for you to come and join us as we explore our school, our locality and the countries which make up the United Kingdom. After that we will set off around the world touching down in countries along the way to learn more about their weather, land use, language, culture and tourist attractions. Along the way we will investigate the Continents and Oceans of the world; we'll create flags for the different countries we touch down in and we will bring all our knowledge back to help us formulate a design for a piece of land next to our school. Will we include the Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal or create our own mountain range? Throughout our exploration of the world we will use our geographical vocabulary to describe the places we visit.
During our travels we will investigate the work of famous people including Claude Monet and Joseph Wright as well as taking part in themed days and celebrations.
We cannot wait to begin.

Light and Dark
We cannot wait to begin our topic 'Light and Dark'. To launch our topic we will travel back in time to discover who Guy Fawkes was and how he is linked to bonfires and fireworks. We will also be creating firework art pieces too.
In our Science lessons we will be completing an investigation into the different types of materials and their properties. We will create reflective jackets to protect our teddies on the Road Safety walk. This will also support the development of the Key Stage One working scientifically skills.
Later on in the half term, our scientific exploration will take us through the changing seasons this half term. Using our sensory garden and forest school to support our learning about the hibernation and migration of animals will be a great hands-on experience.
This half term also brings us Anti-Bullying Week, Diwali Celebrations, Road Safety Week and Christmas celebrations.
If your child tests positive for COVID, the teacher will contact you via Class Dojo to share home learning websites and to let you know when their home learning pack of work will be available from collection at the school office or sent home via a sibling.
