In Term 1&2 our topic is called 'Bounce'. We will be finding out if we can hop, skip, run, jump and bounce! We’ll write about memorable experience, create imaginative poetry, follow instructions, write information books and design leaflets. We’ll take part in a variety of sporting activities and see if practice makes perfect. Film clips, photographs and information books will help us to investigate how animals move, and we’ll find out how exercise can affect our bodies. Our maths skills will help us to discover how far we can throw and how quickly we can run. We’ll investigate different spheres and create a beautiful, spherical art installation. Our sporting heroes will provide us with plenty of inspiration as we work together in teams and rely on each other to score points and win games.
At the beginning of each new term, children will take home a 'Knowledge Organiser'. This contains relevant information about the current topic. It also has three key questions which the children will aim to answer by the end of the topic. Children may also wish to extend their learning beyond the knowledge organiser if they have a specific interest in the topic.
Please use the knowledge organiser as a starting point for any extra study. The information on these sheets should be easily recalled by the children once the topic is completed.

Homework will be sent home on a Friday. There will be a maths and a literacy task for the children to complete. Homework should be returned to school by the following Thursday. In addition, children are expected to read their book, sent home from school, and to practise the 2, 5 and 10 times tables every night. Click on the yellow maths games star below to find a number of links to websites which will help children practise times tables and other maths skills. Children will have a daily spelling test in their RWI group and there is a link below to the common exception words which children are expected to be able to read and spell by the end of Year 2.
