Autumn Term 2

Week beginning 12th November 2018 

 

This week in English we have read the story 'Nobot the Robot who lost his Bottom!' 

It was a very funny story and made us laugh.

Magically, Nobot's bottom appeared at Eagley Infant School and was found by our ducks, hens, sheep, pony and rabbit! 

Our animals thought it would be useful for different purposes eg a bath, a bed, or a feeding bowl. We wrote some super sentences about our Eagley animals and the strange red bottom!

We are now excellent at using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.

We can also use some exclamation marks in our work.  

 

In Maths we have been finding pairs of numbers that make 20 eg 10+10=20, 15+5=20 etc

Homework challenge;- How many pairs of numbers can you recall that make 20?

16 + ? = 20

? + 2 = 20

20 = 11 + ?

 

In IPC it was exciting to share  our learning with the important people in our lives.

Thank you to everyone who came to our Mexican Fiesta on Thursday afternoon.

The children particularly enjoyed making Mexican hats using digestive biscuits, icing and cake decorations. 

Year 1 can now compare living in Bromley Cross with living in Mexico.

 

We have just introduced our new Science topic -'Super Humans' and can't wait to find out how our bodies work!

 

Pyjama Day was a great success with the children, as they love any opportunity to dress up. Thank you for your generosity to Children in Need. 

 

Have a great weekend

 

Week beginning 5th November 2018

 

This week in English we listened to and watched some video footage of fireworks.

We then wrote our own firework poems eg

 

The fireworks  whoosh, bang and pop!

The sparklers sizzle

The Catherine wheel spins round and round

BANG! BANG! BANG!

 

It was an opportunity for us to practise using exclamation marks in our writing

 

Homework challenge:- Write a different firework poem using exclamation marks

 

In Maths we have been adding and subtracting 1 digit and 2 digit numbers using a number line or counting on or back in our heads.

 

Homework challenge:- Work out the answers to the following calculations 

 

16-9=

12+8=

11-8=

13+6=

20-10=

 

In IPC we have been finding out about the work of the Horta family in Mexico. They are famous for making masks!

We can now recognise the Mexican flag, know about some popular foods eaten in Mexico and have listened to some Mexican music.

We can't wait to share all our learning with you on Thursday!

 

Have a great weekend   

 

 

Week beginning 29th November 2018

 

This week in English we have been reading, reciting and performing a Halloween poem called 'Five Little Pumpkins'.

Then we wrote our own poems in the same style.

It was tricky because we had to think of words that rhymed!

Homework challenge: Write a poem about fireworks.

 

In Maths we have been counting, reading and writing numbers to 100 in numerals.

We have also been writing numbers as words, from zero to twenty

eg Two and two is four.

Homework challenge:

Ten and six is ? 

Thirteen and seven is ?  

Six and six is?

Seven take away two is?

Twenty take away one is? etc

 

In IPC (International Primary Curriculum) we have been looking at the kinds of uniforms worn by different people in the community, such as Firefighters, Postal workers, Ambulance Service, Chefs etc.

We looked at the colours of the uniforms and the materials they were made from.

We noticed that many professions wear waterproof clothing and have reflective strips on them.

 

We enjoyed sharing our homework projects with each other. 

We were particularly impressed with the model vehicles that had been made at home.

 

Have a lovely weekend.
