Welcome to Oak Tree Class!
This term our topic is "Memory Box" and we will be thinking about the past and what our earliest memories might be!
In Science we will be finding out about "How Humans change over time"- and the children will be considering the question what can we do now that we couldn’t do as a baby? The year one and two children will describe the main changes as young animals, including humans, grow into adults. We will study the human body including the senses and which part of the body relates to each sense.
In Maths we will continue to learn about counting, number and play a range of Maths games to reinforce the one to one correspondence of counting forwards and back. The year 1 and 2 children will continue work on addition and subtraction and begin multiplication.
In English and History the children will learn about "The Gunpowder Plot" and Remembrance Day and our fiction will be based around stories such as The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson as she is the author we are focusing on this term. We will also write some firework poetry, looking at how adjectives and onomatopoeia can be used effectively.
In RE,from the Derbyshire syllabus we will think about the question "Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?"
In our topic work the children will find out about Monyash and how it used to be in the past. We will invite local people into school to talk about their memories of growing up around our school and the local area and find out how household items used to be and how they have changed over time. The history of toys and transport will also be covered.
In Art and DT the children will design and create their own memory boxes to keep important bits and bobs in.
ICT for Year 1 and 2 will include learning about and writing emails and all children will continue to learn about E-safety and what it means to be safe online.
