A new term and a new year! Welcome to Term 2. We are so excited for our next steps of great learning! May 2024 hold nothing but amazing times for us all.


This term we will focus on writing a story using the story mountain to help with a beginning, middle and an ending. We will encourage using wow words and focusing on smart spelling. We will begin to use conjunctions to enhance our writing and increase the content of our stories.  Reading is of paramount importance in Year 1 and we will enjoy daily activities linked to reading, writing and spelling.

We will enjoy hands on practical activities to reinforce our learning. We will be diving into measurement starting with length and then moving on to weight. 


Our topic this term is 'Amazing Africa and Awesome Animals' . We are learning about this amazing continent that we live on, we call home, others call it Africa. We will be investigating the diversity of our various cultures, environments and everything that this wonderful place has to offer from its people to the wildlife and everything in between! We will compare and contrast it to Europe.
