Spring 1 topic: Street Detectives!
Grab a magnifying glass, put on your deerstalker and change your name to Sherlock because we’re going to become street detectives! This half term, we’ll follow a route around our local streets and look at the buildings, businesses and plants we can see. Talking to local families about the area will help us understand how the local community could be improved. We’ll learn nursery rhymes, write poetry and create persuasive adverts. Looking at photographs will help us to spot any similarities and differences between the houses and shops of today and the past. We’ll find out about the history of our school and plan talk to former pupils about their experiences. We’ll also study and draw maps and create a model of a local building.
We need your help!
If you or a family member used to go to St Andrew's especially the old building) then please let us know; we would love to be able to ask them questions! If you have any old photographs of the local area/school then please let us see them!
If you have any old maps (of anywhere) that you can donate for us to have to look at/cut up etc please bring them in!
As of this Friday (21/09/18), we will be issuing a phonics activity for the children to complete for homework. This is in addition to the homework expectations outlined at our recent parent meetings.
The children can return their homework once it has been completed. The homework will be issued each Friday. Some children will require adult support to complete the activities.
Below are the Year 1 and 2 common exception word lists. These are a list of words that the children need to be able to spell by the end of year 1 and 2. Each child will be coming home with a copy of these spellings for you to refer to at home and each week the children will be tested on a select few of the year 2 words. Please ensure that your children are confident in being able to spell all of the expected year 1 words.
