Welcome to Oak Tree Class!
This term our topic is Journeys and Transport and we will be finding out about different ways of travelling across the world and the adventurous journeys that have been made in History. In Maths we will learn about number, the four calculations as well as fractions and time. In English the children will look at non-fiction books about transport and use descriptive language to write about different settings. The class will enjoy some fantastic stories about journeys and where they can take us, which will inspire the children to write their own.
Science will cover "Materials" and "Plants, Animals and Living Things" and we will investigate which is the best material to use for floating a boat and we will learn how different materials are used in different vehicles. In RE we will learn about "God and what is special about our world" and we will listen to some stories from the bible.
In our topic work the children will find out about how transport has changed over the years, different journeys and where in the world a journey can take you- we also hope to make some short journeys ourselves.
In Art and DT the children will make paper aeroplanes, use papier mache to make hot air balloons, mix paint to make new colours and find out about the famous Spanish artist Joan Miro as well as creating their own pictures and models of vehicles. ICT for Year 1 and 2 will include looking at algorithms and all the children will play some games using "Daisy the Dinosaur" and the BeeBots.
