Summer Term 2

Sunny or Snowy

Geography Focus – Physical Geography, Seasons and Weather

Our focus this term is Geography, we will be exploring the seasonal and daily weather patterns within the UK and climate across the world. We will be looking at how weather changes with each season and the impact that global warming is having upon the weather in the UK and the World. We will read ‘Old Enough to Save the Planet’ to help inspire our children to follow in the footsteps of climate change activists.

We encourage the children to take part in our home learning activities. These are linked to our topic to create a good link between learning at home and in school. Please see below for information about the project homework for this term. If you have any books, DVDs, songs, or artefacts about our current topic, please send these in for our show and tell session we have each Thursday morning. Please see our class timetable below.

So much sewing progress. Photographs taken by our Photographer Jacob.

We used a sewing machine to stitch up and down a piece of material.

Needles at the ready! Sewing is in full progress. Year 1/2 have shown some fantastic resilience and developed their sewing skills this term. I am blown away with their focus, determination and progress!

We spent the morning in our beautiful Bluebell woodland and created watercolour paintings of the surroundings. The children were extremely focused and enjoyed the peace and quiet to creating their paintings.

Our big read with our friends from across the school.

In History, we explored the different types of breads that have been made through the ages. We baked 3 different types: Egyptian, peasant Anglo-Saxon bread and Royal Anglo-Saxon bread. We ordered the breads into a timeline.

Our class created a dance with the help of our talents Miss Wilbourn. We went to Tibshelf Community school to perform our dance for local primary schools.

For our Topic Immersion Day, we re-enacted the Queen’s Coronation which took place on 2nd of June 1953. The children worked together to make the props. Each child had a different role to play and we had a great time!

Kings and Queens

The children wrote letters to Her Majesty The Queen. We walked to the post box to post the letters. It gave us a good opportunity to practise our safe road crossing skills.

In science, we have been learning about different types of materials and what they can be used for. The children used some recycled materials to make a material monster.

The children tested materials to see which metals were magnetic. They found that a metal bottle top would move along the table when the dragged a magnet underneath.  Collectively, they recorded their results in a chart.

In PE, we are learning how to control a ball using a hockey stick.

We’ve been using objects to represent numbers in maths.
