Class M

Welcome to Class M

We are children in Year 1 and Year 2. Our teacher is Mrs Richardson and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hughes.

 

This Term's Learning –

During Spring Term in Class M we will be looking at the new topic ‘Land Ahoy!’ We shall be learning what life was like for pirates and famous sea explorers. As part of our exciting topic we will be; making boats, pirate flags, maps, singing sea shanties and having a ‘pirate day’ celebrating everything we have learnt.

In English we will be labelling the parts of a pirate ship, exploring pirate poetry, writing a message in a bottle and describing pirate life.

In Maths we will be weighing and measuring a pirate’s booty and solving problems like how to stop a boat from sinking to help Captain James Cook.

Maths: Y1 – 2D and 3D shapes, Subtractions within 20, Numbers to 50 and Measuring

             Y2 – Statistics, Multiplication and division, Fractions, measuring and properties of shape.

Art: Let’s sculpt! We will make sculptures using a range of unusual materials such as bread, sugar cubes and marshmallows.

PE

We do PE twice a week, usually on Wednesdays and Fridays. However, please ensure PE kits are kept in school all week to give us flexibility when timetable changes are needed.

Children that wear earrings should be able to remove these themselves, or not wear these on PE days. (It is advisable to have ears pierced at the beginning of the summer holiday).

 

Homework

  • Spellings will come home on a Monday to practise and be tested at school on the Friday.
  • Reading books will be in your child’s book bag every day and we encourage them to read daily. Please ensure their book comes with them every day as they will read to an adult during the week.
