Year 1 -Term 2 Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back to Term 2, we have a busy one ahead!  Thank you for your support during Term 1 - it’s fantastic to see children reading regularly this has a positive impact on their learning. Please can I ask that children have their reading book in school every day.

This term our topic is based around ‘Toys’. Our curriculum will be planned around stories based on toys, designing and making toys and learning about how toys have changed over time and around the world.

English – we will be focusing on phase 5 phonics. We will be reading many different stories about toys and retelling them. We will be writing short stories and concentrating on our letter formation.

Maths – during term 2 we will be focusing on

Topic – within Art and History we will be studying toys. We will design and make our own toys.

Science - this term our Science focus is materials. We will learn the properties of different materials and investigate materials.
