Addition and Subtraction fun

We have been busy developing our understanding of addition and subtraction. Using strategies such as the bar model and calculation triangle, we have learned how the numbers relate to each other.

Supertato Superwriting!

21/10/2016 at 1:33 PM

Over the past two weeks, we have been using the book Supertato as a focus text for our learning in English. supertato image

We loved reading about Supertato’s adventure in the supermarket with the evil pea!

We wrote amazing book reviews, retold the story in our own words and created our own alternative endings. Through our writing we focused on developing a range of skills including:

  • using different sentence types (statements, questions, exclamations and commands)
  • using contractions e.g. don’t, I’m, I’ve
  • using past tense verbs
  • using conjunctions e.g. and, but, so, when, because

Other stories by this author include Supertato Veggies Assemble and Barry the Fish with Fingers!

Happy Playtimes in Key Stage 1

21/10/2016 at 1:20 PM

In Key Stage 1 assembly this week, Mrs Lace talked to the children about how we can be happy at playtime.  In class, we thought about some games we could play and learned some new traditional games such as clapping games and elastics.  Can you teach your child any games you remember from when you were young?  Can you guess what games the children are playing from these photos?

2La’s visit to Thackray Medical Museum

14/10/2016 at 1:40 PM

We had a wonderful time yesterday, learning all about Florence Nightingale. We sorted objects into if we thought they belonged in the hospitals before or after Florence had arrived. We didn’t like some of the smells in the dirty hospitals! We also enjoyed looking at the timeline and placing events during Florence’s lifetime and looking at some of the events that happened after she died. We had a great time dressing up as nurses and porters, acting out Florence’s journey to Scutari and working in the hospital.

David Hockney Trees

11/10/2016 at 6:36 PM

In 2L, we have been looking at David Hockney’s charcoal pictures of trees. The children then used charcoal to draw their own pictures of trees.  We have displayed the finished pictures in class- why don’t you come and have a look?
