Summer Term 2022

In Catkin class, our new topic this term is 'Roots and Shoots.' We have planted our sunflowers, we will be watching them grow and making observations.  The children will continue using their 'green fingers' as they develop their vegetable patch within Catkins outside area.  
Visiting our forest, is one of Catkins favourite times of the week, and we can't wait to get back out there. We will be looking for signs of spring, identifying different trees and flowers using classification charts and continuing to develop our resilience and team work!
In literacy, we will be reading the text 'The Secret Sky Garden' by Linda Sarah and Fiona Lumbers.  This book  focuses on our environment and the importance of reducing the amount of litter and pollution. 
Our science topic this half term will be 'Changing Materials' where many of our experiments will be using ice.
In maths, Year 2 will be starting a new unit of work on Fractions and moving onto Properties of Shape, while Year 1 will be continuing with their Weight and Volume work before being introduced to Multiplication and Division.  As a class we have been learning about 'Time' together, and becoming familiar with o'clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past.  We would welcome continued support with this at home.
We have an exciting event this term and all will be revealed soon!
