A massive hello and warm welcome to Red Arrows. We are a fantastic group of Year 1 and Year 2 children who always try our best with everything we do. We are taught by Miss Gilpin and have Mrs Troop and Mrs Walker as our teaching assistants. On a Tuesday morning we also have the lovely Mrs Bray teaching us. We have lots of exciting things to learn about during our first term back at school. Keep checking back for updates of the amazing learning we are doing.
Spring Term 1
Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break! Our theme this term is We Are Superheroes. A lot of our learning this term will be based around this theme.
This term our PE sessions are on a Tuesday and Thursday so we need to make sure we come dressed in our PE Kits (weather appropriate) on these days.
Our whole school text this term is Winter’s Child by Angela McAllister. The whole school will be using this book in their learning for the first part of the term. In Red Arrows we will also be using Supertato by Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet, Superworm by Julia Donaldson moving on to look at the traditional tale of The Three Little Pigs and also the alternative version called The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas.
Below you can find our knowledge overview of all the work we will be covering this term.
Below you can find our knowledge organisers based on our History topic of 'The Great Fire of London' and our Science topic of 'Everyday Materials'. This term, some of our home learning tasks will be based around these and a copy will be sent home over the first few days of term.
Every two weeks, we will have a new set of spellings to learn at school and at home. To practice them at home, login to Spelling Shed with your logins (the link can be found below). Our log-ins are attached to our reading records. We will have a quiz on a Friday morning at the end of every two weeks.
Here are some phonics games you can play to practise your sounds.
Home Learning - Microsoft Teams
Every fortnight I will now be sending home a school chat. If your child would like to share any things they find out through school chat or any activities they might complete in response to it please feel free to do so using your child's Notebook section on Microsoft Teams or by emailing our class email.
If you have any issues when trying to use Microsoft Teams please let me know and I will try my best to help you. As well as the original letter that was sent with your logins on, you can find your school email address and password for Microsoft Teams on the front of your reading records. I will post the home learning each week on here as well as sending a copy home with you.
