5-7 year olds
Welcome! Below you will find some more information about the teachers working in Year 1/2 this year as well as a summary of our curriculum for each term.
This term, Year 1 and 2 will be starting a new topic called Where in the World? We will be discussing how the world is split into seven continents and the five oceans. We will also compare the features of the UK to Kenya by learning about the landmarks and identifying key geographical features. In addition, we will be exploring how and where people live.
In English, we will be continuing ‘Read Write Inc’ which will incorporate our reading sessions. We will be using various books such as Mrs Mole, I’m Home! Grandad’s Island and I Thought I Heard a Tree Sneeze to develop our poetry, diary entries and recounts.
In Maths, we are focusing on subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be using various resources and written methods to develop these skills, including the column method, sharing circles, arrays, Dienes and Numicon.
