Year 1 Learning Narrative – Spring Term 2019

To celebrate the start of a new term and to inspire some fabulous writing, the children were invited to bring in their favourite toy for the day. Over the next few weeks the children will be learning all about toys, in the past and present. They will be creating their own toy and basing a story character on their invention. As a class, we will be reading some well-known stories all about toys and using these as a stimulus for our writing.

To see what the children will be learning, please click here to view the Year 1 English Curriculum or here to view the Year 1 maths curriculum. Details regarding other subject lessons can be viewed in our Foundation Subjects document.

At White Meadows Primary we use the Read Write Inc. phonics programme across both Key Stages up to Year 3. This phonics scheme provides a systematic approach to literacy, both reading and writing, which is fun and engaging. This is supplemented with the use of phonetically decodable books from Oxford Reading Tree and the Phonic Bug schemes, along with a range of other texts. Further details on how you can support your child can be found on the Read Write Inc. website.
In addition to the above programme, we also use the Big Write and Big Maths schemes and Little Big Maths in Foundation Stage.
Parents are welcome to approach class teachers to find out more about the curriculum at White Meadows. The following link gives more details of the National Curriculum.

Year 2 Learning Narrative – Spring Term 2019

When the children return to school they will jump back to 1666 and discover the events that unfolded during the Great Fire of London. They will find a box hidden by Samuel Pepys and build up to create their own time capsule to leave behind for someone to find. Following a visit from the Fire Brigade, the children will look into why the fire spread before going on a walk around the local area to look at the differences in the structure of houses now compared to back then. In the second half of the term, the children will develop their descriptive writing skills and write diary entries from the perspective of different during the fire.
