This term, Year 1 and 2 will be starting a new topic looking at Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night. We will be asking and answering lots of questions about the differences between time periods, creating a timeline of significant events between then and now and debating the impact of the event.

In Literacy we will be introducing a new phonics scheme ‘Read Write Inc’ which will incorporate our reading sessions. We will also be developing our understanding of comprehension by looking at the work of Anthony Browne. We will be attempting to rewrite some of his work. This will allow us to develop an understanding of how to write an effective sentence and how to create a basic story.

In Maths, we are focusing on number. We have begun looking at place value and are continuing to develop our understanding of more and less. We also want to secure our knowledge of number bonds to 10 before developing the children understanding of bonds to 20.
