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.
