Year 1 Curriculum Coverage

Year 2 Curriculum Coverage

This term our learning journey is all about the story of 'Beegu'.

Victorian Toy Workshop

A brilliant lady called Sharon came in from the Museum of Somerset to deliver a workshop on Victorian toys. There were three different activities for the children to rotate round including matching up old and new toys, playing with old toys, and making a thermatrope. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Old toys show and tell

One of our lovely parents came in to class with some of the toys she used to play with when she was little. Some of the children brought in toys from home that used to be their parents. 

Toys through the decades

The children researched toys from different decades. The classroom was set up with each table representing a different decade (50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s) with toys from that decade for the children to explore and play with. We then came together to share our findings. The children were surprised to learn that lots of the toys they played with today are the same as toys they have at home!

 

 

 

 

Remembrance Day

We have been talking about Remembrance Day and why it is important to remember the soldiers who fought in the wars. We made poppy collage pictures and used sponges to make poppy paintings. We went to the war memorial in the village and did a 2 minute silence together to remember. 

 

 

 

Supermovers

We use videos from BBC Sport Supermovers to help us with our Maths and to keep active. We have to copy the dance moves whilst practicing our counting.

Number hunt

On Thursday the Year 1 children went outside for their Maths lesson, hunting for different pictures of objects to practice their counting and writing numbers to 20. 

Friday morning activities

On a Friday morning the children can choose from a variety of activities that are set for them. There is a mixture of play, crafts, maths games and spelling games. 

Visiting our local church

In RE we have been learning about special places. We walked to our local church to explore this special place for Christians. The children drew some beautiful pictures of things inside the church and then wrote about our adventure. 

Local Habitats

The children worked in groups, discussing where different animals live in habitats that are local to us.
