Monday 30th October
Year 1 and 2 home learning
After the half term break, our journeys topic will focus on Space exploration. We will be learning about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing. We will compare him to the British astronaut, Tim Peake and talk about what makes them significant people in history.
We will also be reading and writing stories with Space themes, such as Beegu, Man on the Moon and Aliens Love Underpants.
Please discuss Neil Armstrong, Time Peake and Space travel with your child as pre-learning for our topic.
Your child will also need a ‘Pringles’ type tube to build a space rocket over the coming weeks. Please collect any such tubes if you have them.
If your child would like to take the homework further, they could draw a story map for their favourite space themed story or recreate the cover of the book.
Enjoy the half term break!
Thank you for your support

Friday 6th October
Year 1 and 2 homework
Next week we will be using fairs and particularly Hull Fair as a stimulus to write poetry. We will use our senses to create interesting vocabulary.
Please discuss any fairs you have visited and if you go to Hull fair, please discuss how our senses are simulated.
If your child would like to take the homework further, they could draw a picture of a fair, fairground ride, hook a duck stall etc. They could write any vocabulary around it to describe smells, tastes sounds, feelings and what they see. They could even make a maths hook a duck game or bake some fair time treats. The choice is yours!
