Welcome to the Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E.P.S. Website

Welcome to Year 1/ 2 JH

Summer term

I hope you have all had a fantastic Easter! I can't believe we are already in our final term in year one. We have an exciting term ahead of us.

Literacy

This summer term we will be writing a Non-chronological report on our favourite animals.  We will be focusing on using adjectives, conjunctions, exclamation and question marks to make our writing more interesting. 

 

Maths

We are learning multiplication, division, time and money skills.  Keep practising your  your 2, 5 and 10 times tables at home.  Sing our songs to help you remember!

 Computing

In computing we are making our own picture books. We will be leaning how to search and find images from the web and how to copy and paste these into a document. 

 

P.E is on Wednesday and Friday please remove earrings.

In P.E we will be taking part in lots of team competitive games to improve our balance and co-ordination. 

 

 Phonics

In phonics we are practising reading lots of real and nonsense words ready for the reading check this summer term in June.

In Literacy we have been learning how to write shape and rhyming poems. We made up our own poems and performed them to the rest of the class.

R.E - Christian Easter story

We had lots of fun acting out the Easter story and this helped us to understand the importance of one of our beliefs. We discussed why Christians celebrate Easter and we know it's not just about eating chocolate eggs.  

History

We had lots of fun  learning about past and present school life in history. We enjoyed looking at artefacts from the Victorian period. Our classroom was transformed back in time to the Victorian period so that we could experience what it was like to go to school during that time. We also  learnt about the Victorian nurse Florence Nightingale and had a visit from a nurse to help us compare  past and present day nursing.

Nurse Visit

Thank you to Nurse Chelsea for coming into our school to help us learn all about modern day nursing. We had fun pretending to be nurses and enjoyed using your medical equipment.

RE trip to the Church

Thank you to Reverend Brae for inviting us into his church and conducting a mini baptism for our baby doll. After learning about the Christian ceremony of Baptism in Religious Education, we got to see in real life how a baptism is conducted in a Church and understand the messages and reasons for having a Baptism.

We have had lots of fun dressing up as super hero's and Disney characters to make money for red nose day!

  • P.E is on Wednesday and Friday please remove earrings.
