Year 1

The focus topic in Year 1 this half term is “Marvellous Magic”. The children will be designing and making their own magical potions in Design and Technology and they will be investigating primary and secondary colours in Art lessons. English lessons will be based around the text, “Meg & Mog” by Helen Nicoll. The children will be focusing on sentence structure and use of adjectives, with the intention of eventually writing their own versions. Additionally, Year 1 will be learning about materials in Science and the weather and seasonal changes in Geography sessions. In Maths lessons, Year 1 will be concentrating on numbers up to 10, place value, addition and subtraction.

Year 2

The focus topic in Year 2 this half term is called “Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum”. The children will be investigating a range of fairy tales including Jack and the Beanstalk. The children will visit our Forest School for inspiration before writing their own versions. In Science lessons, Year 2 will be learning all about plants and this will lead into some fantastic leaf printing in Art. Geography lessons will consist of exploring physical features such as lakes, mountains and forests, whilst in PE lessons, the children will be working hard on their gymnastics skills. Moreover, Maths lessons this half term will be heavily focused around number, place value, addition and subtraction.


Just to remind you that your child will receive homework and this will consist of:

  • Reading book to be read daily. Can you please ensure that your child’s reading record book is signed daily and that is brought in to school every dayBy signing the record book it is clear to staff that your child has read at home and we can award them with tokens for the raffle draw during our celebration assembly.
