This Week

We have been learning all about animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctic. We have been finding out about penguins, polar bears, walruses, seals, foxes and many more.

The children have been discovering, holding, watching, painting, and breaking ice in classrooms. We have been learning about why ice and snow melts and how we would stop it from melting.

Next Week

Topic: Winter

Math: Positional Language

Letters and Sounds: Identify the musical instruments just by listening

We will discover what happens to the weather in winter around the world. We will talk about what you can do in the snow and I’m sure there will be lots of talk about snowmen, Santa Claus and reindeer too!

We will be continuing to use words such as under, over, on top, at the bottom and now also adding in, out and behind to describe the position of different objects.

Year 2 Bulletin

literacy

In Literacy this week, the children will continue with the theme of the Great Fire of London and use this to start learning about poems. The children will explore the features in poems, including:

Similes e.g- bright as the sun

Alliteration e.g- smoke swirling

The children will use their understanding of adjectives and verbs to construct a poem all about fire. The children will also present their poem as a shape poem. Changing their voices and using expression the children will practise performing their poem to the class.


maths

In Maths this week, the children will continue to learn about multiplication and apply their understanding of arrays to help solve multiplication calculations. Whilst exploring arrays the children will begin to understand that multiplication is commutative.

For example

5 x 2 is the same as 2 x 5

2 x 8 is the same as 8 x 2

The children will explore the above calculations using arrays so that they can see that whichever calculation they do, they would still end up with the same answer.

The children will also be introduced and shown how to  solve multiplication word problems.

For example

There are 5 bags of apple and each bag contains 2 apples. How many apples are there?

The children can solve this as

5×2 or 2×5

The children will need to follow the process of reading the question careful, underlining the key words and numbers and then drawing their method pictorially and writing the calculation. As shown in the above example, the children will be encouraged to write both multiplication calculations to show the commutativity in multiplication.


topic

The children will excited to spend the week practising for their class Great Fire of London performance which will take place the week beginning Sunday 9th December.

The children will be learning their script, songs and practise acting as the role they’re given and to read their lines using expression and gestures.

Have a go at reading your lines to someone at home.

Can you remember your lines and read them by heart?


reminders

Year 1 Bulletin

literacy

This week we will continue using the story of Handa’s Surprise as a basis for our learning. We will discuss what is needed to write a sentence and practise writing our own, with a capital letter at the beginning, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. We will then use our imagination to change the story to create our own characters and events, and practise verbally re-telling and writing our own new and improved version!


maths

This week we will be continuing our exploration of numbers 10-20, focusing on tens and ones. We will use practical apparatus to help us with this, and then move on to comparing numbers using a variety of strategies. We will practise using the language of more than, less than and equal to, and finish the week by ordering groups of objects in a variety of ways.

You can help your child at home by using more than, less than and equal to in your everyday conversations, e.g. “Who has got more pencils? Who has got the least food on their plate?”

Why not use this website to practise your mental maths skills;

topic

This week we will continue our cultural exploration around the world by learning all about Chinese New Year! We will first learn about how and why people celebrate, and discuss the different animals that are part of the Chinese calendar.

We will then use this knowledge as a basis for investigating the different types of animals – mammals, fish, amphibians, birds and reptiles. At the end of the week, we will become animal detectives, and use I-pads to research the physical features, habits and food source of different animals.
