Good afternoon everyone,
This week has been a great week in Year 1/2 with lots of great learning.
In Literacy, we wrote our own animal diary. We began by researching information about our chosen animal. We then used this to help us plan activities for each day and then we made a book. They look great!
We also learned how to make plural nouns by adding ‘s’, ‘es’ and ‘ies’ to the end of a root word.
Our spelling focus this week was words containing the /ai/ sound.
In Maths, we have been learning about Addition. We used the = sign to show equality, used number facts to help us solve missing addition and subtraction number sentences and learned different methods for adding 2-digit numbers, including column addition and partitioning.
In IPC this week, we have been learning about the different uses of plants. We made posters to show what plants are used for and found out about different foods that can be grown from plants. We also learned about how plants are farmed in different countries in the world and how the climate can affect them. The children designed a floating garden to help grow crops during monsoon season in Bangladesh.
Next week, we will be starting our new IPC topic called ‘Treasure Island’. We will be learning all about pirates!
I hope you have a great weekend.
See you on Monday!
