What's happening in Year 1 and 2?
Terms 3 and 4
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.
