Happy New Year! May 2022 be filled with health and happiness and of course, continued great learning in Term 2 !
This term we are learning to write simple stories, focusing on the beginning, middle and end. We will be looking at characters and settings. Included in our wonderful writing will be our four keys to great writing, Think it, Say it, Write it and Read it. We will be learning digraphs and trigraphs in our spelling with a big drive to encourage correct spelling even though everything is VERY phonetic in Year 1. Ater half term we will be introducing our ' Free Write Friday' where every Friday a prompt will be given and independent writing encouraged. We will also be enjoying simple poetry!
This term we will be learning to count in 2's, 5's and 10's as well as identifying odd and even numbers. Place value is the main focus of this term with some fun maths like measuring and time thrown in! We will continue to solve single step problems involving addition and subtraction within 20.
We finished off last term like royalty with our Kings and Queens theme! This term we are excited to have the topic of exciting explorers! We are learning about pirates, Neil Armstrong, Christopher Columbus to name a few! We also have our science week this term, where the key word is Growth!
