On some Thursday afternoons, we will also be visiting Ecoland. We will inform you of these dates through class Dojo. Please ensure your child has a suitable coat on this day. You may also wish to provide our child with wellies in the event of wet weather.

 

READING AND READING BOOKS

Reading is one of life's most important skills and is something which is highly valued here at Holy Trinity.

We share lots of exciting and engaging stories in class every day, to promote a love of reading.

In Key Stage 1, reading books will be give out according to your child's Read Write Inc group. Please ensure your child brings their reading folder in to school every day to allow their books to be changed on the correct day. Please read with your child regularly at home.

 

OUR LEARNING

 

ENGLISH

In English, we will be following the daily Read Write Inc programme which covers spelling, reading, writing and phonics.

 

MATHS

We take part in daily Maths sessions, which will develop their mental and written maths skills. Each unit will provide many varied opportunities provided to extend their knowledge. Children will be given the chance to explore ‘real-life’ problem solving and develop their mathematical reasoning skills throughout their work. The children will be taught a range of arithmetic strategies including number bonds and doubling and halving, as well as times tables for Year 2.

 

COME AND SEE

In Come & See, we will focus on three topics during the Pentecost term: Spread the Word, Rules and Treasures. During these topics the children will have opportunities to talk about and retell different Bible stories, as well as begin to describe different signs and symbols, which will help them with their understanding of the Catholic faith. This term we will also study Islam as our other faith learning. Regular class liturgies  based on Come and See topics and our whole school ‘word of the week’ will also take place. The children will be encouraged to plan and lead these liturgies.

 

CURRICULUM FOCUS

In History this term, we will be exploring the history of transport. We will be linking this to the life of William Tritton, a significant person with our locality, and his influence of the development of the tank. In Geography we will be comparing the localities of Sherwood Forest and the Amazon rainforest.

In Science, we will be consolidating our knowledge of seasons and exploring Summer. We will also be studying the basic needs of animals including humans.

In Design and Technology we will be making a healthy packed lunch.

In Art this term we will be developing our drawing skills using a range of different media, looking at the life and work of Henri Rousseau.

Our Music work this term will be focused on the skills of listening and composition.

In our Computing work we will be learning about algorithms and how to avoid bugs in our programming.

Our focus for PSHE this term will relationships with others. We will be using out ‘Life to the Full’ scheme to help us. We will look at the British Value of Democracy.
