Year 1 Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2019

The children arrive back to find strange footprints dotted throughout the school. They lead them to an abandoned egg.
Who did the egg belong to?
What was inside?
How did it get there?
Following this unknown discovery, the children will uncover the owner of the egg and enter the land of the dinosaurs. They will learn who once ruled the planet and study important people from our past.

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 2019

As the children return to school in September they 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. They will be exploring the use of imaginative language, alongside using ‘Talk for Writing’ strategies to write their own adventure. In History and Geography the children will be learning through the inspirational life journeys of Amelia Earhart and Captain Scott. They will be thinking about how they travel locally and will be exploring the concept of travelling further afield whilst learning about the seven continents and five oceans.
