Welcome to Mars Class
This is our Y1/2 class. The class teacher is Mrs Miller and the teaching assistant is Mrs Hardeman.
Welcome back Year 2’s and a warm welcome to our new Year 1’s in Mars Class.
This term our topic is Houses and Homes. We will be going back in time to the Great Fire of London; looking at how the fire started, why it spread so quickly and how historical sources help us know what happened in the past. In literacy we will be studying the Story of The Three Little Pigs including sequencing the story, character descriptions, alternative endings as well as many other things.
In science we are looking at materials, which ties in with the materials of houses built in 1666 and the materials used by the Three Little Pigs to build their houses. We will also be investigating what materials make the best roof for the Three Little Pigs’ house.
In Maths, we will be focussing on number and place value which will lead into addition and subtraction.
As well as the above structured lessons, we feel it is important to have a balance between the teaching of the National Curriculum and the opportunity for children to explore their own ideas, play with resources and use their imagination and creativity through child-led activities that link to our topic.
