Year 1/2

Welcome to Y1/2,

Y/2 ended the Spring Term with an exciting visit to the Potteries Museum improving their art skills. They made clay portraits and sketched a partner. It linked to the art topic studying the works of the artists Piet Mondrian and Mackenzie Thorpe. The class were praised for their behaviour and concentration.

The children showed some brilliant skills her and took home their 3D portrait.

This term’s English will focus on writing character descriptions and reports. There will also be opportunities to hear and write poetry.
In maths the class will be learning more addition, subtraction and place value. This is additional to work on measurement, fractions and reasoning. The children do ‘number know how’ every day to work on their tables.

The children will be learning about living things and habitats in science and will be experimenting with plants as well. There are some great budding scientists in Y1/2!

For the summer term the Learning Challenge Curriculum topics will be ‘How has Saturday night entertainment changed? And ‘Where will our feet take us?’
We will be making maths links by recording out favourite television programmes in a bar graph and a pictogram. And working out how long programmes last.

We will be asking parent/carers for their favourite programmes as well and what they watched when younger. Also we will be working out how long we watch television for and thinking about what is good for us.
Later on in the term we will be taking part in sports ’day utilising our PE and games lessons. Then we have a wonderful end of year concert to cascade all the talents of this excellent class.
