Year 1 and 2

Welcome to Year 1 and 2

Welcome back to school for the final half term of this school year. This half term our topic name has been chosen by the children ‘Seeds, Soil and Sunshine!’.  During this topic we will be looking closely at various fruits and vegetables and finding out how plants grow and what they need to survive. We will also be tasting and cooking different foods and exploring them with all of our senses. Please inform your child’s class teacher if your child has any allergies that the school may be unaware of.

What will we be learning about?

  • To find out where fruits and vegetables come from
  • To code our own healthy eating computer games
  • To identify parts of plants and what they need to survive
  • To learn about the different food groups and the importance of eating healthy balanced meals
  • To create our own food pictures inspired by ‘Giuseppe Archimboldo’
  • To read stories about food and growing plants
  • In Maths we will be:
    • using coins to make amounts and to give change.
    • identifying fractions of shapes and numbers
    • solving problems using our Mathematical skills
