Year 1 and 2: Unicorn Class

In Years 1 and 2 children start to follow the National Curriculum and take part in more formal learning. We ensure there is a gentle transition from the Early Years Curriculum, preparing children for Key Stage 2. It is here that children start to become confident readers, writers and mathematicians. Our topics are carefully chosen to reflect the interests of the children, ensuring they are motivated and excited to learn.

21st October. This week we have completed recounts of our amazing trip to York and Roald Dahl fact files. 

We have also been working on subtraction using a number square to help us. Some of us have been solving tricky word problems using our new skills.

We have also been investigating habitats of different animals and sorting them into where they most like to live.

We are all looking forward to half term now!

14th October. The best thing we did this week was to go to York to make lollies and edible wallpaper. We went on a new coach. We tried lots of chocolate. We have been learning about Willa Wonka and his chocolate factory.

We have also been practicing writing our numbers from 0 to 10.

You might want to ask us to explain "Maisie mountain, mountain", "Around the apple and down the leaf" and "Slither down the snake"!

We had harvest festival on Tuesday at the church and read our harvest poem.
