Miss Bird and Mrs Sorrell welcome you to Owls Class
Academic Year 2016-2017
We are both very much looking forward to being a part of the Year 1/2 Owl Class this year.
PE is every Wednesday afternoon
Our final topic of the year is “Explorers”. We will be going on our class trip in a few weeks to explore the Enchanted Forest at Groombridge Place. Very exciting!
We will learn about different methods of travel and exploration – from sea to space!
We will be reading “The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch” and using that as inspiration for our literacy. This will link in with our cross curricular work as we find out all about the history of lighthouses and have a go at making our own complete with working circuits!
As part of our geography, we will be thinking about what life on an island might be like and having a go at creating our own fantasy island maps complete with coordinates! We will also spend time researching significant explorers in history.
In maths we will be focusing on developing deeper skills and understanding of topics we have covered throughout the year. We will also revisit areas we found tricky – such as time.
What a busy term!
