Spring term

Super Humans

As part of our humanities learning, our topic this term is ‘Super Human’. Your child has brought home a concept organiser with more detail about this topic. The children will be developing their skills as historians and geographers throughout this.

This topic links with our curriculum themes about:

· Human Rights and Responsibilities

· Diversity

· Health and Well-being

· Leadership

We will update our blog regularly with examples of the work that we are doing. Please find below a copy of our concept organiser.


In Year 1/2, the children progress through the Read Write Inc. scheme. This is a daily session with children taught in small groups. Each lesson consists of a speed sound and reading session. Each week, the children read a different RWI book.

Once children have completed all the RWI colours, they will join the Literacy group.

In this group, we will be using various age appropriate texts as a stimulus for developing our skills in retrieval, inference, vocabulary, explanation, predict and summarise.

PE days:

Mrs Davies’s class - Tuesday

Miss Cruickshank's class - Friday

For each session, children will need to come to school in their PE kit, including trainers, dark tracksuit bottoms or shorts and a white t-shirt.


We expect that the children in Years 1 and 2 read five times a week. To help your child to develop their reading, please listen to them read their RWI books. They will also bring home a library book which you can share together.

The children also need to practice their spellings in preparation for their weekly spelling test on a Friday.

For maths, the children will be set weekly homework on Microsoft Teams. A hard copy will also be sent home. The purpose of this is for children to apply skills that they have been working on in school. This homework will usually be set on a Monday and the deadline will be on a Friday.

On Microsoft Teams, you will also find some hand writing practice and phonics sheets where children can spot the special friends.

Home school books:

Your child will have a home/school book in their bags. Please use this to record whenever you hear your child read or when they have completed any other homework. This should be at school every day.
