Happy New Year and welcome to Term 2. Here's hoping 2021 will be a good year! We are delighted to be back together in school, although we all did just great with our online learning ! Have a look at what we've been up to in the few weeks back in class......
This term we have been focusing on traditional tales and putting our writing skills into practise, using the story mountain of beginning, middle and end. We are learning about tenses, past and present, plurals, verbs, nouns and adjectives - all sprinkled with lots of imagination and creativity! We are working hard with our spellings too.
This term we will continue to focus on number value, odd and even numbers, skip counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. We are also loving the practical measuring activities of length, weight, mass and capacity. We are working on improving the speed of mental recall for our number bonds to 10 and 20. We are learning to tell the time and 3D shapes.
Our topic this term is ' Roots, shoots and fruits' and the 'Old Toy Room'. In science we will be looking at what plants need to grow, parts of a plant and their functions and the lifecycle of a sunflower plant. We will be investigating which parts of a plant we eat, the leaves, roots or flowers. In History, we will be comparing toys from long ago to present, exploring what they were made from and what games used to be played by interviewing grandparents.
