Spring Term 1 - Week 1

Week 1

Welcome back and I hope everyone had a good half-term. Please note that our P.E day this term is Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their full P.E kit in school to change into and that earrings are removed on a Thursday.

Literacy - Our focus text this term is The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson.  This week we have been learning about expanded noun phrases and the children have been using them to describe Plop the barn owl.

Numeracy - Year 1s have been learning about length and height. They have been measuring and comparing the length and height of objects using the words longer, shorter, taller, double and half. 

Year 2s have continued their learning about division and have been learning how division can be used to identify odd and even numbers and to half and double numbers.

Science - We recapped the names of the seasons and the children have been learning to explain the differences in animals and plants during these seasons.
