Team 1 2021 - 2022










Our theme this half term is...    'material world'.

Welcome to your second half term in key stage one! This term we will be exploring a new book: 'Nibbles' by Emma Yarlett.

In science this half term we will be continuing to investigate everyday materials. We will be exploring and comparing the uses of materials through fun activities and investigations.

In maths we will be working on addition and subtraction within 10 by using part-whole models. We will learn about the '+', '-' and '=' symbols and how to use them in a number sentence. Much of our learning on this subject will be using concrete resources, but also introducing pictorial and then more abstract representations.

We will begin to move towards more 'whole class' activities in our learning as the children mature and develop their ability to sit at a desk for longer spells of time.

In PE, we will be learning about how to be 'champion gymnasts' this half term by making our movements silent and controlled, and by pointing our fingers and toes. We will be making narrow, wide and curled shapes and movements with our bodies, introducing transitions between them.

We are very lucky to have Mrs Caroe teach the class for Art and Design & Technology on a Monday morning during Mrs Weeks's planning time.

This half term also sees the return of the Christmas Nativity play for Team 1! We will be practising our singing, acting and general Christmas cheer this half term ready to impress you at our performance in December.

Please note:

Please ensure your child has the appropriate P.E kit and welly boots in school at all times. These can be left on their pegs. All items must be labelled with your child's name (including shoes).

Reading Books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday each week to allow for the appropriate time for quarantine. The children read every day as part of their Ready Steady Read sessions, and read with an adult once per week in school. Please make sure you comment in your child's red reading log once they have read at home. We would recommend you read with your child every day to support their developing reading skills as much as possible. It really does have a huge impact on their learning in all areas of the curriculum.

If you have any questions regarding your child's learning in Team 1, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Weeks.
