Knowledge Organiser

Weather Experts 

Information

Our class PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Children will need a suitable PE kit on that day. Thank you. 

Clubs

Extra curricular activities will resume when it is safe to do so.  

  

Snack Time

If your child has milk through the ‘Cool Milk’ scheme then they will have this at playtime. In KS1 we have fruit for the children daily. 

 

Homework

Maths and spellings will continue to be sent home weekly. The maths links to the area of learning we have been focusing on that week but if the children are unsure how to complete their homework please speak to us at  home time. We do encourage the children to be independent and hand their homework in as they come into the classroom. Please help us by reminding them to do this as they come into school.

 

 

Puma Class
The fantastic Puma class is a straight Year two class located at the bottom of the two story block. Working in Puma’s this year alongside myself we have our fantastic teaching assistant, Mrs Spencer, will also be providing additional teaching. If you have any questions or queries, you can speak to any of the adults in the class.

 

Topic
We have lots of exciting activities planned for the second half of the spring term! Our new topic is all called Weather Experts and we will be learning all about the weather and seasons in our science lessons. We will be using making our own weather gauges to record the weather and use our maths skills to help us measure rainfall.  Our geography focus for this half term is thinking about where we live in the United Kingdom and naming all the countries that make up the UK. We will be learning how to use maps and locate places on a map, so lots of opportunities to take our learning outdoors! As well as this we will also be working on English and maths lessons daily along with phonics, spelling, RE, PE and music. We will, of course, be looking at Easter and why it is a special time for Christians. In our English lessons we will be sharing texts on the theme of the weather as we try to use our developing phonics knowledge to write longer sentences that include adjectives and subordination. Where possible we will try and link our topic to all our sessions. All the children will have access to continuous provision to enhance their learning experience and build on from their learning journey in Foundation Stage.

Temporary Changes to Reading

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID 19 the children will be bringing a book home on a Monday and the book will be collected in on Friday. The children will get a new book on the following Monday. 

Once books are allowed home again the following is encouraged:

The children will all continue to bring home a reading book and we ask that you sign their planners to let us know if they have finished the book or what page they have read up to. We are keen to develop fluency so we like to encourage children to re-read their books before changing them. We ask that children read at least three times a week at home and that planners are signed.
