Year 1/2

Spring Overview

This term our topic is Chocolate! In this unit we will learn about where chocolate comes from, why chocolate is grown in certain places of the world and the Mayans and Aztecs. Ask your child what they have learnt about where cocoa beans are grown and why they are grown there. We will also be focusing on DT, children will design their own chocolate bar and wrapper through planning, designing and evaluating. In English we will be reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, we will be writing a story at the end of this unit about an imaginary chocolate factory. 

Homework has been assigned to research, create a model or art work relating to Chocolate. This could be a favourite chocolate bar, a fact file about where chocolate comes from or art work of something chocolate related. All homework is displayed at the end of half-term for parents to view and some projects are shown in assembly. 

PE lessons will be on Mondays and Wednesdays and children will need their indoor PE kit for these sessions.

Homework and spellings will be given out on Fridays to be returned by the following Thursday. All children are tested on spellings on Friday mornings.

Please try to support your child with their reading at least 4 times a week, then leave a short comment in their yellow reading book about their progress. Reading books are usually changed every 1-2 weeks when children read with an adult in school, however if you would like your child to change their book more frequently please do not hesitate to ask.

Feel free to ask any questions in the morning or after school. Thank you for your support with reading, homework and spellings!
