Term 2 Summary

Our topic this term is ‘Seasons and Weather’ and will focus on Science and Geography learning. We will be starting our topic with an Autumn hunt around the school grounds, looking out for signs of Autumn. We will be answering questions, such as:

  • How do the seasons vary?
  • Why do some days have more daylight than others?
  • What is the weather like in the United Kingdom?
  • How can weather be measured?

 

As part of this topic, in Art we will be using a range of materials and techniques to show how deciduous trees change throughout the seasons. Then, as Christmas draws nearer, in DT we will be researching, designing and sewing our own Christmas decorations ready to put up on our Christmas trees at home!

Term 1 Summary

Our Y1 topic for this term is: ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’. As part of this, the children have decided to explore the following questions:

How is sand made?

Why are there waves in the sea?

How does a boat float?

What type of animals live at the seaside?

How have seaside holidays changed over the years?

What does a beach look like in different seasons?

As part of this topic, we will be learning new art skills to create a range of seaside-themed art. 

 

Alongside this, some of the other things we will be doing are learning about the Hindu festival of Diwali, learning Cheerdance routines and singing some new songs using our online ‘Sing Up’ scheme for Music
