St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 2

During Term 2, our new enquiry will be 'How has play changed?'


The enquiry will begin with the children finding a time capsule buried in our school playground. In the time capsule will be a message from Mary who attended St Anne's in 1937 years ago! She explains what the school was like during the war. We will be Historians to explore how the school and play has changed over time. As historians, we will explore many different sources to find out about the past such as artifacts, videos, internet and photographs.

We will have a visit from a real historian as well as visit from two other people that have attended St Anne's since Mary; Mrs Harris in the 60's (our school cleaner) and Mrs B in the 90's. At the end of the enquiry, the challenge will be for the children to create their own time capsule to bury in their own garden


As Author Writers we will practising identifying and writing nouns and proper nous and then using the conjunction 'and' to join two sentences together. These skills will help the children to write their own message to future children to go into their own time capsule. 


As Mathematicians, we will be using part whole models and tens frames to help us solve addition and subtraction calculations and word problems. 


In phonics, we will begin teaching phase 3  RWI digraphs and trigraphs which can be found in the 'ways to support at home' section of the Year 1 page.


We look forward to another busy and exciting term!
