Street Detectives!

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Year 1/2 Class Blog!

This half term our new topic is Street Detectives.

During our topic we will think carefully about our local area, the type of buildings that we have and what our houses are like. We will become Street Detectives and find landmarks in our local area.

In Art and Design we will be using line and colour to draw our local area, developing our drawings and thinking carefully about adding detail.

In DT we will be designing and creating model houses. The children will then get the bring this home and see how well they have recreated their own home.

In RE we will be thinking about ‘Why does Christmas matter to Christians?’.

Through History we will look at the local area and houses from now and look at how the local area was in the past. We will compare them and think about how much the world has changed.

In Computing we will be focusing on e-safety and understanding how to be safe whilst using a computer and whilst online.

Please can children bring their PE kits into school on Monday. They will be doing PE on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Please can they have a white t-shirt, black shorts and plimsolls for when they do PE indoors. We will be hopefully be spending some of our PE sessions outside so to be prepared for all weathers, please can your child have tracksuit bottoms, a long sleeved top and trainers, for when we do PE outside.

Memory Box.

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Year 1/2 Class Blog!

This half term our new topic is Memory Box.

During our topic we will think carefully about different memories that we have and we will learn about how different the world is now to the past. We will also look at different types of celebrations and what we do to celebrate our birthdays or weddings.

In Art and Design we will be using line and colour to draw self-portraits and family portraits, developing our drawings and thinking carefully about adding detail.

In DT we will be designing and creating our own memory box. The children will then get the bring this home and fill it with memories.

In RE we will be thinking about ‘Who do Christians say made the world?’.

Through History we will look at transport from the past as well as toys from the past. We will compare them to what we have now and think about how much the world has changed.

In Computing we will be focusing on programming and understanding what an algorithm is and how we can communicate clearly with each other and technology.
