Year 1 & 2 - Bay 2020 - 2021

Mrs Winterson

 

Welcome Back!

I hope you have had a great break  and I hope the children enjoyed themselves. We have got exciting lessons planned for this new term.

The children really enjoyed the last topic, increasing their knowledge and developing skills. 

Our new Cornerstones topic is Rio De Vida. We have lots of exciting lessons planned and we can not wait to see how the children progress this half term. 

Dancing feet, step to the samba beat. Shake it, shimmy, hands in the air, wave your flags in the cool night air. Come join the party down in Rio, keeping the rhythm with your party shaker. Bright colours, patterns and feathers. Can you make a headdress or party mask? Meet magical creatures from Brazil’s myths and legends and create your own too. Be as fancy as you like. Let’s get down to Rio where football is king, and practise our skills on golden beaches. Now we need to plan a celebration with fabulous music and song. Let’s invite parents and friends to come along. Bem-vindo ao Brasil os meus amigos

Help your child prepare for their project
Celebrations are exciting for everyone. Why not look through some old photos together and talk about any celebrations taking place in the pictures? You could also plan a party and choose the decorations, food and music together. Alternatively, use a children’s atlas to discover countries around the world. Read the name of each country carefully and find out what it would be like to live there.

P.E.

P.E days are Monday & Wednesday.  PE kits should comprise of black shorts, coloured house tee - shirt and pumps.  Trainers , jogging bottoms and a sweater for colder days when outdoor PE is being taught.  PE kits need to be brought into school only on the days of PE and are taken home at the end of each PE day.

Reading 

Your child will be given a new reading book based on their own reading ability for them to read at home with an adult. Reading journals and books need to be in school everyday.  Encourage your child to read to you daily. A study of 17,000 people from birth indicates that reading for pleasure improves not just literacy, but maths ability too.   When your child reads with you please date and sign your reading journal so that we can monitor children's progress properly.  Check your reading dairy daily as we might write you a note.

Homework 

Presentation of homework is important so please encourage your child to write in pencil, underline with a ruler and write the date neatly.  There are always home learning ideas linked to your child's current topic too that might interest you. These are attached to this page.  Homework tends to be project based on our topic.  Homework is is given out on Wednesdays and is due in the following Monday and will be on the Google Classroom.

Please make sure you have logged into Google Class room as we will be using this platform in the future for any home learning if children are absent.

Thank you
