Pole to Pole

On the first day of the term our classroom transformed itself into a snowy blizzard, complete with blustering, howling wind, as well as slippery snow and hazardous ice all over the floor - therefore setting the sene for our topic of 'Pole to Pole'. During this topic we will embark on an investigation about what life is like in the Poles, including a study of the habitat of native animals and concluding with us deciding whether or not we would (or could....) live there. This topic will give us many oportunities to use non-fiction texts; discovering contents pages, glossaries and the text features of reference books. We will then begin to create some of our own about our favourite artic animals.

No study of the polar regions would be complete without learning about Scott the explorer - and I believe he may be making a visit in one of our drama lessons...

Aside from the above, our English focus continues to be using accurate punctuation - as we remind ourselves that we must use capital letters and full stops in all pieces of writing - they are not solely for our English books!

In Maths this term, the Year 1 children will be looking at larger numbers up to 100 and really getting to grips with the place value of each digit, as well as quicker recall of 1/2/10 more than or less than a number. Year 2 will be looking at fractions as well as begining to review our learning ahead of our assessments in the summer.

Class expectations

Please make sure that your child's clothes are all named (including PE kits).

Please provide your child with a water bottle every day.

Please can we ask that children do not bring in toys, pencil cases or over-sized PE bags as we just do not have the space to keep them safe.

Please send your child's reading record (keep with the books in the wallet provided) to school every day.

Please remember to read with your child every day and record this in their reading record. Reading at home is essential to learning and accessing all that is on offer at school.

With your support at home, we are aiming to make your child;

- an independent learner

- a good listener using their eyes and ears

- responsible for changing their books, keeping the classroom tidy and looking after their PE kit/uniform

—If you or your child is unhappy with something in class/school please come and speak to us straight away. In this way we can support your child in the best way possible.

Thank you for your support.
