Years 1 & 2 (Key Stage 1)

Welcome to Key Stage 1!

Summer TERM 1

 

This half term's topic for Venus, Earth and Mars classes is called 'Fighting Fit' and is all about healthy food and fitness.

Our focus book is The Magic Bed by John Burningham. We will be writing instructions for making a fruit salad, a story based on The Magic Bed and we will be doing some non-fiction writing on Life Cycles.

 

In maths, we will be focussing on position and direction, statistics and data, time, money, measurement as well as focussing on arithmetic questions and reasoning.

 

In History, we will be exploring the lives of 2 famous people, Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and why they were significant.

 

In science we will be learning about what humans need to survive, including learning about nutrition, exercise and hygiene.
