Year 1 Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2021

We will start Year 1 by finding an abandoned egg and making predictions about where it came from. If you are reading this please keep the learning ’Top Secret’ so not to ruin the surprise for the children. After the egg has hatched, a dinosaur will escape! We will send the dinosaur letters, asking questions in order to gain information for our dinosaur fact files. We will look into the life of Mary Anning and how dinosaur fossils were discovered. During the Autumn term we will have a big focus on our sentence structure and will support the children in understanding what a sentence needs and how to punctuate it correctly. During our maths lessons, we will be focusing mainly on number and understanding place value and begin to develop our addition and subtraction.

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 – Autumn Term 2021

As we return to school in September the children will be introduced to the ‘Wheely’ amazing world of ‘Wheels, wings and wonderful things.’ They will meet the quirky and funny character of Mrs Armitage and her equally quirky and funny inventions. We will explore the use of imaginative language, alongside using ‘Talk for Writing’ strategies to write our own adventure and play with rhyming words to write a rhyming couplet poem. During our Maths lessons we will develop our understanding of place value and then apply this to our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division units of work. In History and Geography we will learn through the inspirational life journeys of Amelia Earhart and Captain Scott. We will think about how we travel locally and explore the concept of travelling further afield whilst learning about the seven continents and five oceans and through our computing lessons we will develop our E-Safety awareness. In our Science lessons we will be looking carefully into the use of different materials.
