Year 1/Year 2 Class


Teacher: Mrs Leonard

Teaching assistants: Mrs Hill


The first text we are diving into is ‘Tidy’ by Mini Grey. We will continue to practise writing cohesive, sequenced sentences using the grammar and punctuation that has been taught previously (full stops, exclamation marks and questions marks) and will build upon the children’s knowledge of the different conjunctions used to join to sentences together (and, but, so, or, when, if, because). The children we learn about the four different sentence types and the Year 2’s will begin to use apostrophes for contractions (can not-can’t).

The second text will be ‘Grandpa’s Secret Giant’ by David Litchfield. They will use this text to write their own poem and their own version of this story about acceptance. We will use this text to explore a variety of suffixes, conjunctions and ensure that the children can write consistently in the correct tense (past or present).


Year 1 Maths– The children have been practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to help them with their times tables. They will look at equal groups, arrays and doubles (multiplying) and grouping and sharing (dividing). They will then move onto looking for and finding halves and quarters of shapes and amounts. They will complete the term by learning about position, direction and money and increase their place value up to 100.

Year 2 Maths– We will begin by learning about find halves, quarters and thirds of shapes and amounts, unit and non unit fractions and equivalent fractions. We then move onto telling the time to the nearest five minutes. We complete the term by learning about position and statistics. During this term, there will be opportunities to revisit previous learning and embed the strategies that have been taught. We will continue with fortnightly Challenge Tuesday and our weekly arithmetic work.


We will begin the term by learning about plants. The children will observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy.

We will complete the term learning about habitats. The children will learn that habitats provide basic needs of different kinds of animals. They will also identify and name a variety of plants and animals in their habitat, including microhabitats and describe how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain.

Geography and History

In History we will  be finding out the role of a monarch, children compare the monarchy today with the monarchy in the past. Pupils investigate how William the Conqueror became King. They castles and consider how these evolved over time.

In Geography we will locate the seas and the coasts and describe features of coastal towns, record data and represent their findings in a pictogram.

Art and D&T

In Art we are exploring colour mixing by using the primary colours to make secondary colours. We will use this print and look at the work of Clarice Cliff. Design and Technology is designing and making a healthy wrap.


We will be learning how to programme robot algorithms and begin to make simple quizzes. We will also complete our E-safety lessons.


This term the children will build their skills in Fundamentals, Fitness,  Athletics and Striking and Fielding.
