Welcome to Year 1/2 LM! (Mrs McBain)
We will be doing indoor PE on Monday morning and outdoor games on Thursday afternoon, so please make sure you have your kit in school on these days. Earrings need to be removed for all PE sessions. If your child can do this themselves that's great, but if not please could they not be worn on our PE days.
Spelling tests are on Friday, homework will also be given out on this day too. Please can it be returned by the following Wednesday.
Any questions or worries about your child please write a note in the children's home school contact book or book an appointment at the office to see me.
We have made a great start to our new topic 'How does your garden grow' and at last with a bit of lovely sunshine and also the rain, our sunflower seeds which we planted have finally started to grow!
Here are some pictures of the children doing some observational drawings of plants using pencil and colouring pencils- they were really looking carefully and produced some fantastic artwork.
In terms 3 and 4 our topic is called Wibbly Wobbly Wheels!
We have been busy designing and making our very own wobbly vehicles using junk materials and have found out how wheels and simple axles work. We are going to do some research about the history of cars and will look at Henry Ford as a famous person from the past.
We are using our topic theme in our English work too and all of our stories involve types of transport. We have looked at poems and talked about alliteration. We have written an explanation text about how a steam engine works and are currently working on information texts and researching different types of transport.
In maths Year 2 have focussed on addition and subtraction in the context of money, length and height and compared quantities. They have been developing their use of mathematical symbols. Year 1 children have been developing their skills of place value, addition and subtraction and measuring.
In term 4, our maths will focus on multiplication and division. We will be looking at stories written by the same author and will be finding out about the work of the artist Lowry.
