Our topic this Summer term

This Summer term our topic is Houses and Homes.

We will also be doing some poetry and our topic is entitled - A closer look. the class will listen and respond to various poems as well as drafting and editing their own and reading aloud.

Our Non-fiction topic this term is - Where in the world is the most unusual place to live?

Our reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree. We aim to hear most children read their own book several times a week and change all reading books every day as needed. We encourage parents / carers to hear their child read every day if possible. Staff also hear children read daily in every Read, Write, Inc session and children do guided reading sessions too.

 In Maths we use the Big Maths scheme for our daily Maths lessons. On Monday mornings we all do a timed Beat that maths test. 

 Science this term will focus on Habitats, Amphibians, Reptiles and lots of fun investigation work.

In History this term we will be learning all about The Great Fire of London.

( PE lessons will be outside weather depending so please make sure your child has suitable footwear for lessons) Monday afternoon is Swimming at Morton Pool for Year 2 this half term and Year 1 in the latter part of the term.
