As we approach the end of the Spring term, with so many varied activities going on, such as Mother’s Day assembly, baking and football tournaments, we have still been working hard in the classroom on our curriculum subjects.
Class 2 have really enjoyed a poetry focus in English. The Year 2 children brought in a poem from home that they performed for the class. It was lovely to see them recite their poems confidently and clearly for their friends. Both Year 1 and 2 children have loved listening to, solving and creating their own riddles. We were very impressed by their thoughtful and knowledgeable clues. Year 2 .children also used Mother’s Day as inspiration to write a creative recipe for an amazing Mum. Ingredients included Eight cup of kindness, 100 gallons of love and a teaspoon of bossiness!
In Maths, Year 2 children have enjoyed the challenge of Fractions! Mainly because we started the focus by breaking breadsticks into different fractions before we ate them! We have also been revisiting and practising addition, subtraction, multiplication and division regularly. Year 1 children have enjoyed exploring measures! We have looked at money, capacity and weight. We have also revisited addition and subtraction.
In the afternoons we are coming to the end of our Space Topic. We have continued to look at Neil Armstrong and why he is such a significant individual. We also used the ipads to research Tim Peake and create a video all about him. Recently , we have also looked at Christopher Columbus and explored the places he travelled to.
In Computing we have created our own BeeBot maps. We really enjoyed testing each of the maps. The children have really enjoyed looking at the BeeBots and creating algorithms.
