Our Topic for Spring Term

This half term in Willow Class we will be learning about animals. If you are learning from home I will be adding work and resources to the relevant areas for you to teach from and access from home. 

 

In RE, we will be learning about why Easter is important to Christians. We will be learning the Easter story and having a look at the events that happened during the Holy Week. We will also be learning about how Easter eggs and hot cross buns link to Easter as well as learning all about how Jesus forgave others and what we can learn from him.

 

 

Year 1- Teach your Monster to read (phonics) game

 

 

Teach your Monster to Read is a series of games which helps children to master the key first stages of reading.  

Your child will benefit more from the game if they can play at home. It’s free to play on a PC and laptop, or you can download the Teach Your Monster to Read app from the app store on phones and tablets (but you may have to pay for it)

To play on the website, visit teachyourmonstertoread.com and start playing in seconds.

You can log in to your child’s game using the details in their reading diary or via and email Mrs Orme has sent you, if she has your email address.

Year 2 Maths- Times tables

Year 2s are learning about times tables, Time Tables Rock Stars and Hit the button are great websites to help your child. All Year 2s have logins in their homework diaries.

We have been learning about Easter in our RE lessons this half term. The children learnt about the significance of hot cross buns and Easter eggs at Easter time.

RE - 10/3/21

The children had a special RE lesson, learning about the Sikh religion. They made a Kalgi (an ornament worn on the turban) and they compared Sikh beliefs to Christianity. I also demonstrated how I tie my turban. The children were fascinated!

Forest School - 9/3/21

Our first Forest School session as a class. We looked for minibeasts living in microhabitats.

We had a look around a local habitat (forest school) for animals and plants that live there.

Today we made faces using leaves.

 

Art and DT

 

This half term we have made clown faces on eggs which was super fun!

We have also been learning about jesters because they were performers for the Kings and Queens, they would perform tricks and make people laugh just like clowns.

Year 1- Maths

 

Spirituality Afternoon

This afternoon we learn about spirituality and did lots of fun activities. We tasted Smarties and said thanks to God, we said sorry and put out thumb print on a cross and we wrote names and put them in God/s hand to ask him to look after out friends, family and neighbours.
