In Class 2 this term we will be starting our new topic, ‘Fire and Water’. We will be finding out about the Great Fire of London and hope to have a visit from someone in the character of Thomas Farriner, who was the baker at the source of the Fire.
Last term, we began using a continuous provision approach, where children have different tasks to complete throughout the week, which we will continue during our new topic. This is helping children become independent learners, develop their creativity and make links in their learning.
There will be links to our topic in our English lessons, where we will use texts based around the theme of fire and water. We are currently using the fictional story ‘Kassim and the Greedy Dragon’, which we will innovate and use this to invent our own stories.
Phonics will continue to be taught daily, as reading is still a large focus in Key Stage 1. Therefore it is important that children continue to read regularly at home, as this gives them the opportunity to practise what is learnt at school.
During Science, we continue to explore outside and find out about the plants in our environment. We will hopefully find some areas around the school that can be brightened up by planting some bulbs and watching them grow.
Class 2 consists of Year 2 and Year 1 children
