Year 1 Learning Narrative – Autumn Term 2020

Our topic needs to be kept top secret as its a surprise and we don’t want to ruin the magic of their learning.
The children arrive at school to find an abandoned egg!
Who does she egg belong to?
How did it get there?
Upon discovering the egg belongs to a dinosaur they receive a letter from the owner of the egg and prepare their reply. They learn who once ruled the planet and study Mary Anning and the role she played in discovering dinosaur fossils before making their own fossils!

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 2020

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 we will play with rhyming words to write a rhyming couplet poem. During our Maths lessons we will be developing our understanding of place value and then applying this to our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division units of work. In History and Geography we will be learning through the inspirational life journeys of the Wright Brothers, Amelia Earhart and Captain Scott. We will be thinking about how we travel locally and will 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 around the school.
