Years 1 & 2

Years 1 and 2 Curriculum Overview

Moon Zoom

This half term we will be starting our new topic Moon Zoom.

In Maths we will be continuing to develop fluency in number bonds and times tables. Our new learning will cover positional language, addition and subtraction and making equal parts as well as securing our understanding and application of place value.

In English we will be doing writing based on the book The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers. We will be exploring different text types including descriptive writing and letters.

Our Science work will be about sorting and classifying animals and explaining how they are suited to where they live. We will be re-capping the parts of the body and the senses too.

This half term we will be continuing with DT and History. In DT we will be exploring wheels and axles and making simple moon buggies and in History we will be learning about space exploration over time.

We will continue to be active and have 2 PE sessions a week as well as having the opportunity to engage in a range of Music, RE, PSHE and computing.


Please send your child to school wearing their PE kit on these days- they do not need their school uniform to change back into.

Please make sure you send your child to school with the following: re-fillable water bottle, book bag to hold their reading record, spelling book and reading book and their lunch box (if they are not school dinners). Can you also ensure your child has a suitable coat as the weather is getting colder. Thank you.
