Welcome back to school! It has been great to see everyone in person and be back during in class learning.
This week, we have been practising social distancing and the children feel very grown up getting their own desks!
This week has also been extra special because we have had a new member in our class. Welcome Lynn! It is great to have you and we hope you enjoyed your first week in Year 1/2.
In Literacy this week, we have been learning about the characters from The Night Pirates. We talked about how the characters might be feeling and wrote a diary extract. We also learned how to use exclamatory sentences. Today, we started to plan our own pirate story and made a story map to show what would happen.
In maths, we have been learning about multiplication. We learned how to count in 3s and practised counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s to solve multiplication number sentences. We also learned about commutativity and used arrays to make commutative number sentences.
In IPC, we have been learning about the history of pirates. The children liked finding out about famous pirates, such as Blackbeard, Anne Bonny and Calico Jack!
Well done to everyone for settling in so well during our first week back in school!
I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
Good afternoon everyone,
Thank you for all your hard work and support during the eLearning period.
Please gather all of the equipment and materials from eLearning to return tomorrow. This should include:
Whiteboard, pen and eraser
Stationary – pencils, rubber, eraser
Number line/Hundred square
Wooden tens and ones (sticks and cubes)
If your child is taking the bus, please help them to take carry the materials to the bus and a member of staff will meet them when they arrive to help them carry their materials into school.
I hope you all had a good week and that the children enjoyed Children’s Day on Tuesday.
This week in Year 1/2, we read the story of Angry Cat. We have been learning how to use subordinating conjunctions ‘when’, ‘because’, ‘where’ and ‘if’ to extend sentences. We wrote sentences about Angry Cat using subordinating conjunctions.
In maths, we have been learning about fractions. We learned how to find half, quarter and three quarters of a shape or quantity.
In our IPC work, we talked about how to look after plants. We then designed and made a watering can to water our plants. We did an investigation to find out what materials were waterproof and then designed a watering can using a plastic bottle. The children then made their watering can and evaluated it.
I hope you all have a good weekend.
See you on Monday!
