Good afternoon!

This week has been a busy week in Year 1/2. In maths, we have been learning about 3D shapes. The children have enjoyed making models of 3D shapes, describing the shapes properties and finding objects in the environment that look like them. We struggled to find a pyramid in school so we tried to use our bodies to make one ourselves.

In IPC, we are learning about how people celebrate Halloween. As part of our topic, we are helping to organise scary dress up day next week. We have made invitations to send to the other children in school and we started to make posters to have around school. They decorated their posters using ghosts and pumpkins.

Thank you for sending in photographs of your children during celebrations. The children enjoyed sharing their pictures and memories of celebrations. We used our pictures to create a timeline to show when different events happened, including when we were born. We talked about events that happen every year, such as our birthdays and some which only happen once, like when we are born. We also created a calendar to show the different events that happen every year and then picked two to compare. 20191001_141255 20191001_141301 20191002_150509

In maths, we have been solving problems involving addition and subtraction. We started by doing a colour by numbers but to work out the colours, we had to add or subtract. We then moved onto solving word problems. The children picked different resources that they could use to help them, such as cubes for counting, a 100 square or a number line.

In Literacy, we have been trying to improve our work. We read our stories from this week, talked about what was good about them and how to make them even better. We then re-wrote part of our story using our amendments.

In ICT, Year 1 and 2 made repeating algorithms with motion blocks and learned to control more than one sprite at once. They then made their sprites have a dance party.
