Spring Term 2 Topic - Magic Materials
Welcome back Year 1! What an action-packed half term we have in store for you. Our topic for this half term is materials. We will be exploring different textures and uses of materials and we are going on a marvellous school trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. For British Science Week, we will be joining forces with EncounterEdu and experiencing a live online lesson all about mini-beasts. Very exciting!
In English, we will be immersed into the world of the Magic Porridge Pot, and innovating our own stories with magical foods and heroic characters. We will be concentrating on our punctuation and using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.
In maths, we will be consolidating our learning on numbers up to 20, before moving on to numbers up to 40. We will experience using counters, number bonds, learning new mathematical symbols and rocking out on times table rockstars.
In history, we will be learning the chronology of British History right back to the stone ages, concentrating on the Great Fire of London. We will be climbing aboard our magical time travelling carpet and going back in time to the Stuarts to meet Samuel Peyps and Thomas Farriner.
P.E. will continue to be on a Monday and a Wednesday.
