There are useful links to resources to support your children with maths, reading, writing and handwriting on our school website.

In Maths this term we have been learning about addition and subtraction. In Year One, we have been learning how to use the part whole model, we have been learning our number bonds to 10, and we have been learning about how t oadd and subtract numbers using a variety of resources to support us. In Year Two, we have been we have been using our number bond knowledge to support us with adding and subtracting, and we have been using column method to support us in crossing the tens. We have also been looking at a range of mathematical problem solving.

In English we have started learning about our new story Voices in the park by Anthony Browne. In Year One, we have been working hard to use our phonics to spell words, to punctuate our sentences with a capital letter and a full stop, to join words and clauses using and, to spell common exception words, and to sequence sentences to form a short narrative. In Year Two, we have learnt how to write an expanded noun phrase, and how to use sentences with different forms, including statements, commands, exclamations and questions. We are really enjoying this story and are looking forward to writing our own short stories at the end of the unit.

In our whole class reading we have just started learning the story The Day the Crayons Quit by Oliver Jeffers. We are enjoying exploring the feelings of the different crayons.

In Science we have been learning about plants. We shared what we already know about plants and we thought of some questions of what we would like to find out. We have enjoyed learning about the different parts of a plant and the different parts of a tree and each parts purpose.

In Geography we will be learning about Winter. We will be exploring the seasonal changes that happen in Winter, and significant events that take place during this season.

In History we will be learning about Mary Seacole. We will be comparing and identifying similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods, we will sequence events in order and place them on a timeline, and we will collect information from different sources.

In Computing we have been using Google Chrome Music Lab to explore the work of Kandinsky and to create our own music!
