Autumn Term 2 - Week 5

Week 5


We have been busy practising for our Christmas play this week but in between rehearsals we have still managed to squeeze lots of learning in. In English we read our focus text Vlad and the Great Fire of London and imagined what it would have been like during the Great Fire of London. We came up with some amazing expanded noun phrases.  We also recapped what singular and plural words are and practised adding es or s to plurals. We also learnt that if a word ends in y you change the y to an I before adding es.


In Maths, Year 1s have been recapping counting skills and Year 2s have been learning about vertical lines of symmetry. Both year groups have also been practising the times tables they are expected to know by the end of the year. Year 1s need to be able to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. Year 2s need to know their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables and the corresponding division facts.


In Science this week, we investigated ways materials can be changed and recorded our results in a table. We learnt that solid materials can be changed by bending, twisting, stretching, hitting and heating.
