Good afternoon everyone,
We have completed our final full week of eLearning. I am so impressed with how resilient the children have been during this time and very excited to be back in the classroom next week.
This week in Year 1/2, we started our new Treasure Island topic. We started by assigning pirate names and learning how to talk like a pirate. The children also made their own pirate dress-up props. In oue IPC lessons, we also wrote our own pirate code and found out about what life was like as a pirate. We learned about pirate jobs and applied for different roles and then talked about some of the dangers of becoming a pirate, including water safety.
In Literacy, we read ‘The Night Pirates’ and wrote about the characters in the story. We also learned how to add the -er and -est suffix to words and how to spell words with the alternative /ee/ sound.
In our Maths work, we have been learning about subtraction. We used different methods to solve subtraction number problems, including counting back, column subtraction and finding the difference.
Next week, we will return to school for in class learning on Wednesday. Please ensure your children wear a mask and remind them of the importance of washing their hands and social distancing. I hope you have a great weekend.
