Term 1: A place like home
We are very excited to welcome the children back and begin our very first topic... A place like home! We have lots of 'getting to know you' activities planned and lots of fun games to settle the children back into school.
In English we will be focusing upon two texts ‘Beegu.’ and 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne. We are looking forward to becoming immersed in these amazing texts and completing lots of role play, creating our own illustrations, completing different writing opportunities like posters, story maps, describing characters and settings.
During Maths lessons we are going to be focusing on number and place value, completing lots of practical, hands on activities using different manipulatives to support us like, tens frames, numicon and unifix cubes.
In Science we are going to be looking at living things and their habitats focusing on; polar habitats, rainforests, oceans, woodland and deserts!
During Topic we are predominately focusing on Geography. We are going to be creating our own map of the school grounds, looking at Sittingbourne town on Google maps, providing compass directions to a friend, comparing Sittingbourne to a town in Africa and creating our own 3D model of Sittingbourne!
As you can see, we have got lots of great things planned for the children and we are so excited to begin! We hope you have all had a restful, fun summer and can't wait to see you in Year 2!

ICT games provides lots of fun, interactive English and Maths activities. Maths activities are broken down into sections such as number, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and fractions- all of which will be great to focus on.
Many of the English games are focused upon phonics, specifically high frequency words and tricky words.
