Good afternoon everyone,

This week in Year 1/2, we have been learning about money. We began by talking about money and talked about the different currency which is used in different countries. We then used pounds and pence to learn about the value of money and ordered the coins from the least value to the most. We have practised adding coins to make a total and giving change.

As part of our IPC topic, we have been learning about different jobs. This week, we have been learning about people’s jobs in the past. We found out about Florence Nightingale and how her job helped change the way that we live our lives today. In Literacy, we used non-fiction books to find out about her and wrote a biography about her life.

Today, we had lots of fun learning how to program a bee-bot. We gave the bee-bot simple instructions using different directions and moved the bee-bot to different places.

Next week is the Year 1/2 class trip to Kidzania. Please remember to pack a snack, water bottle and a healthy lunch. Don’t forget that the trip will be back later than the usual school finishing time so you will need to make arrangements to collect your child from school at 4:50 pm.

Have a great weekend and see you next week!

Hi everyone, I hope you have had a great week. This week at HFS , we had our first Spelling Bee competition. Thank you to everyone who took part and a special well done to our two finalists who were very brave in the Spelling Bee this week.

In IPC, we have been learning about different jobs and the people who help us. We wrote a questionnaire and interviewed the staff in school to find out about their jobs and what they do. We have also been learning about labels and captions. The children were very excited to get their own laptops in class and we played a game where they could label different people and their jobs, such as police officers, doctors and firefighters. We then learnt how to write a caption and made our own non-fiction texts about people who help us.

In Maths, we have been learning about the value of different numbers. We have been partitioning numbers into tens and ones and making and continuing number sequences by counting on or back from different numbers. We have also been learning how to spell numbers as words.
