Y1/2: Mrs Calvert & Mrs Hughes 2020 - 2021

Mrs Calvert

Welcome back, everyone!  We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year too.  This term is set to be full of interesting new topics for you and exciting new things to learn about as always!

One of the things we’ll be thinking about this half-term is being healthy.  Why don’t you click the link for Eatwell Plate below to go to the NHS webpage and learn about what makes a healthy diet?

Foundation Topics

Our science topic for this term focusses on our health and we will be thinking about the question: ‘How can we keep ourselves healthy so our bodies can fight germs’.

In Design and Technology, we will be looking at making our own healthy pizzas, which we will then record each other making for our ICT topic, TV Chefs!

In RE, we are studying Judaism, where we will be learning about the Torah and some of the stories from The Book of Genesis.

Reading

We are now sending reading books home on a Tuesday and they must be returned only on a Friday. This is to ensure that the books are quarantined for 72 hours before being returned a central location for the children to choose a new book.

You can still use Oxford Owl at https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/ online for additional books. Here you will find books grouped by the different colours accourding to your child's reading level. No reading records need filling in at present.

We will inform you when reading records are in use again.

PE

In PE this term, we will be continuing with multiskills in our outdoor PE session and we are starting House of Dance for our indoor PE session.

We will be doing outdoor multiskills on Mondays and dance on Thursdays.

On these days children can attend school in their PE kits.

Please make sure children are dressed for the weather as we will be outside as usual at breaktimes and lunchtimes.

Children can wear their white shorts and navy PE t-shirt but, with the cooler weather, they can instead wear tracksuit bottoms or leggings with their PE t-shirt and school sweatshirt.

Homework

At present, no homework is being sent home.

We are continually reviewing this and will update you of any changes when they are made.

Water Bottles

Please remember that children need a full water bottle every day and we will send them home every night for a wash and refill.

Coats/bags

Your child will need a coat in school at all times as we will be doing as much as we can outside.

No bags, apart from lunch bags, are needed in school at present.
