Year 1/2

Spring Term 2020 in Y1/2


General notices:

  • This half term we will have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on these days. As long as the weather is nice, we will be using outside as much as possible.
  • Spellings will come home each week on a Friday and then will be tested the following Friday. Spellings will also be sent via text message on a Friday after school. 
  • Number facts tests will be on a Friday in maths groups.
  • Reading books can be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. Children will change their books themselves. Please see a member of the KS1 team if there are any issues with this!
  • Remember to keep up the reading! Record each time that you read with your child in their reading record. Those children that read 5 times in the week will be rewarded with a paw sticker on our 'Pawsome Readers' chart. Each half-term we will celebrate those children who have consistently read 5 times per week. 

Curious about Chocolate!

Our topic this half term is "Curious about Chocolate". We will be learning all about where chocolate is grown, finding out about our bodies and how can can keep healthy and we will be creating our own wrapping paper designs for a box of chocolates.


Please see the knowledge organiser below to see what vocabulary we will be learning and some key knowledge. 



In English lessons we will be:

Making posters about how chocolate is made. We will be practising writing different sentence types, using joining words (and, but, or) and subordinating words (because, if, that, when). 


Writing a story based on 'Grendel: A Cautionary Tale about Chocolate'. We will be using our imagination to write our own stories about what would happen is we had 3 magic wishes.
