Term 2 week 1 blog

Hello :) 

A huge welcome back to all the Holly Class children! It has been a real delight to welcome you back into the classroom. 

Literacy 

This week we have started to look at information texts. We are focusing on Paddington Bear this term and his many adventures around London. We started to look at different spelling patterns and recapped on our handwriting and letter formation. I cannot wait to see the amazing writing that we will be doing. This week's home learning is about famous buildings around the world so please complete the learning and find out as many facts about your chosen building. 

Year 1 Maths 

This week we have begun to look at subtraction. We are able to identify the symbols for subtraction and equals and can solve take away calculations using manipulatives. 

Year 2 Maths 

We have finished our unit on addition this week. We are able to add 2 digit numbers using a written method by partitioning the numbers into tens and ones to do so. We have also applied our knowledge of addition to problem solving which is amazing! 

Afternoons 

In science we have looked at identifying materials and being able to identify what material an object is made from. We have also looked at the history of the 5th of November and created our own firework poems based on our learning.
