Welcome back everyone!
We started our learning block off right with a fantastic entry point. So many children brought in their bicycles, scooters and some even roller-skates! That was a fun way to start the new unit From A to B, which is all about transport. We can't wait to learn more about transport! Yippee!
We also had a knowledge harvest: thinking about the different types of transport we know already. Some can fly through the air whilst others can float on water. What types of transport can you think of?
In Year 1 we learned about the past tense in Literacy. We learned that we use the past tense when we speak about something that has happened before. We found out lots of verbs end with -ed when you use them in the past tense. Some of us tried to write sentences in the past tense. Great effort.
In Maths we learned about 2D shapes. Lots of us knew the names of common shapes already, so we also looked at the features of those shapes. We sorted them in different categories and we used them to make art.
In Year 2 we have started to explore the story of The Man on the Moon. We have been fabulous enquirers by beginning our learning by looking at a picture of the character of Bob and thinking of many questions to ask him, using the clues from the picture. As a class we wrote Bob a letter asking him more about his life. To our amazement he sent a letters back to Year 2. We have discussed our favourite part of the book, and written our reasons why, using the conjunction 'because'.
In Maths this week we have been learning to partition two and three digits numbers into hundreds, tens and units using Numicon, dienes and Montessori resources. We have started to use this knowledge to help us add two digit numbers through partitioning.
