is our new unit
in Milepost 1!
These are the places we know we can find water:
In Year 2 we have been continuing to develop our understanding of place value. We have been learning how to make numbers using different addition and subtraction sums. We have especially enjoyed using the One is a Snail book as a stimulus for our maths learning and problem solving. Why don't you see if you can make any more animal sentences that total 5, 9 or 33. https://www.slideshare.net/teacherintraining/one-is-a-snail-ten-is-a-crab-66918888
In Literacy we finished our learning based on the story of The Girl Who Never Makes Mistakes, by writing a letter to Beatrice offering her advice. It was lovely to see the different ideas the children had to offer. We have started to learn about Lila and the Secret of Rain. We have focused on developing our skills in writing descriptive words and sentences, to describe the Kenyan village.
Lots of parents/carers came to the Curriculum meeting last week, which is fantastic!
Here are some of the videos we showed, that might help you when you're reading with your child at home (this is just for reference, not for children):
In Year 1 we practised telling stories which have a beginning, middle and an end. We learned the words; character and setting. We also had a go at making a storyboard for our own stories! We also worked very hard on writing the letters l, t, i, j, u and y correctly.
In Maths the children practised adding numbers on a number line. We also worked on understanding the amount that a numeral represents. Of course, we had to practise writing the numerals. We have such fantastic mathematicians in Year 1!
