# Yr 1 - Brilliant Beeches

Spring 2 in the Brilliant Beeches!

Spring 2

This term our Topic is 'Rumble in the Jungle.'

We will be reading lots of non-fiction books to find out lots of different facts about animals.

We have also had a visit from the 'Meet a creature' mobile zoo when we got to meet some real animals aswell!

In literacy we will be reading non-fiction texts. The focus this term is on using subheadings and asking questions.

How do we make our sentences super in year one? We make sure we include capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!

This term there will be a strong focus on multiplication, division and fractions. In multiplication and division we are working on making and splitting objects into equal groups. We will also be trying to count in 2s to make counting quicker. For fractions we will be splitting objects and shapes into equal parts. We will be learning about halves and quarters this term.

To aid this at home you could practice putting objects into equal groups or splitting shapes into halves and quarters.

In topic this half-term we are learning all about plants. We will be planting our own sunflowers and observing the changes as they grow.  We will also be learning to name the needs and different parts of a plant.

P.E will be on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a correct P.E. kit in school (white t-shirt, black shorts and sport shoes).

Please can you make you read with your child at least three times a week and write it in their reading journal to help towards their 'Red-Ted' award.
