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 amazing 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 2
Our theme this term is 'Whatever the Weather'. We have so many exciting things to do this term and a lot of our learning will be based around this theme. With nicer weather on the way we will also be able to make the most of using our new outdoor area!
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 Flotsam by David Wiesner. Everyone will be using this picture book in school over the first few weeks back at school. In Red Arrows we are also going to be reading one of the recommended books from our Patron of Reading, Gareth Baker called The Travels of Ermine by Jennifer Gray. Later on in the term we are going to be reading some other books and poems with the theme of weather.
This term, we also have another visit from Gareth Baker. We loved his visit to us last term and can't wait for him to come back in and work with us.
Find below the curriculum overview for the term as well as knowledge organisers for our Science topic of Seasonal Changes and Geography topic of Weather Around the World.
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.
This term you will be having a new school chat sent home with you every other week. For the weeks in between, your home learning will be set on Microsoft Teams. I will set you a quiz based on either your Science or Geography knowledge organisers. I will post the homework each week below as well as sending home a printed copy.
