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 Miss Aslin as our teaching assistants. On a Tuesday afternoon we also have the lovely Mrs Bray teaching us. Keep checking back for updates of the amazing learning we are doing.
Summer Term 1
Our theme this term is 'How Does Your Garden Grow?' We have so many exciting things to do this term and a lot of our learning 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 The Flower by John Light. Everyone will be reading this story in school over the first few weeks back at school. In Red Arrows we are also going to be reading Oliver's Vegetables by Vivian French, Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne and also Katie and the Waterlily Pond and Katie and the Sunflowers, both written by James Mayhew.
We are also going to be able to use our school library and work with Gareth Baker who is a published author!
Find below the curriculum overview for the term as well as knowledge organisers for our Science topic of plants and History topic of toys this 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.
