Spring 2

Week beginning 3rd April 2017

This week we have been weighing objects and reading scales. We worked together to solve mass problems using vocabulary like heaviest, lightest, balanced.

Maybe you could use your scales at home to weigh some small objects.

 

In literacy we had a go at writing our own stories. We tried hard to join our handwriting and spell the common exception words. The grown ups were all very impressed!

 

In topic we have been talking about our feelings and what makes us feel happy and sad. We talked about how we feel inside when we are happy or sad. It was lovely to hear all about our happy feelings, my favourite was "I feel happy when mummy and daddy tuck me in bed at night and read a story."

 

Group 1 had their final forest school session yesterday. Mrs Richardson is very pleased with the learning that has taken place and she can't wait to take them back to the forest in Year 2. Group 2 will be having forest schools sessions when we return after Easter.

 

We hope everyone has a lovely Easter and we will see you in two weeks time!

Week beginning 20th March 2017

This week in Literacy we have been retelling the story of ‘Dinosaurs Love Underpants.’ We had to think carefully about the different parts of the story - beginning, middle and end.

We have also been trying to join our handwriting! We are getting much better.

 

In Numeracy we have been finding the answers to missing number problems. See if you can do these at home.

5 + £ = 12

6 + £ = 20

12 - £ = 3

7 = £ - 9

 

In Topic we have had fun creating collage environments for dinosaurs. We scrunched up different coloured tissue paper to do this.

 

We have also enjoyed playing maths games, such as ‘Hit the Button’ on the Topmarks website.

Maybe you could play these games at home.

Week beginning 13th March 2017

This week we were visited by Alex from Bolton Museum. He talked to us about dinosaurs and we pretended to be paleontologists and took part in a dinosaur dig. We came across teeth, claws and spines. It was amazing to see the size of the teeth and claws. We also learned about fossils and we sang a song naming lots of different dinosaurs.

Week beginning 6th March 2017
This week we learned about the features of an information book, for example,  contents page, real pictures, labelled diagrams. We used the information we had gathered last week to make our own information book about dinosaurs. We really enjoyed making our books and can't wait to read them to each other! 
In maths we have been learning about place value to 100, for example, 67 is made up of six tens and seven ones. We have also been counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. Some of us found counting in 5's quite tricky so maybe you could practise this at home.
Group one had great fun in the forest this week making pictures of dinosaurs. They made their pictures from natural objects such as stones and leaves and then sprayed coloured water over the top. When they removed the natural objects the dinosaur outline was left on the paper.

Week beginning 27th February 2017
This week we have been learning to tell the time to o'clock and half past. We have checked the class clock throughout the day to see what time we do different things at, for example, lunch time and reading time. Maybe you could check the time at home. What time do you go to bed?
In literacy we have been gathering facts about dinosaurs. We used books, I pads and our Dinosaur Museum role play to find out as much as we could about dinosaurs. Next week we will be making an information book with all the information we gathered.
