Term 3 week 2 blog

Hello :) 

What an exciting week we have had in Holly Class! 

Literacy/topic 

In literacy, we have linked our topic where we are learning about 'The Great Fire of London' and our new unit on diary writing. We have taken a step back in time and walked down Pudding Lane where the fire started. We have used this to help us look at writing our own diary entries just like Samuel Pepys! We have started a new focus text called 'Samuel Squeaks' who tells the story of the Great Fire of London through the eyes of a mouse living in Samuel Pepys' house (I am a poet and didn't even know it)! This week, we have started to look at writing in the past tense and how the verbs help identify the tense of a sentence.  We have also continued to focus on our handwriting and punctuation. 

Year 1 Maths 

This week we have been looking at our knowledge of place value and number knowledge up to 30 and beyond. We have recapped on our number bonds to 10 and 20 and looked at adding 1 and 2 digit numbers together. 

Year 2 Maths 

This week we have continued to look at fractions. We have looked at finding 1/2, 1/4 and 3/4 of numbers and being able to identify fractions of objects. The year 2's have worked exceedingly hard with their learning this week and can explain what the denominator and numerator tells us. 

Science 

In science this term we are learning about what animals need to survive. We have looked at what animals (including humans) need to survive and what they need to be healthy. Holly Class have shown a real interest in the different animals around the world!
