We have been amazingly busy in Holly Class this week where we have been structuring sentences, becoming experts in place value, conducting scientific experiments and learning all about the different jobs children did during the Victorian era!
Holly Class' Year 1 children have really settled into the curriculum now and are enjoying their learning. In maths, we have been looking at the language of more than, less than and equal to and have been applying this to numbers as high as 30! This is amazing and something to be proud of :) In literacy, we have been focusing on structuring our sentences correctly and our handwriting. We have made great progress in both areas and are starting to confidently use our sounds to write sentences independently!
Our Year 2's have gotten into the swing of being back in the classroom as well! In maths we have been looking at partitioning numbers into tens and ones and looking at estimation on a number line. Estimation can be quite tricky but we have cracked it really quickly which is great! In literacy, we have been focusing on our handwriting and punctuation to ensure that our sentences are making sentence. We have also been looking to develop our stamina for writing and have made huge progress there as well :)
We all enjoyed our science lesson where we looked at how the density of water can affect if a raisin sinks or floats. We even managed to get some of the raisins to dance which was great fun! We have also enjoyed (if only for the fact that we don't have to do it now) looking at the different jobs that children did during the Victorian era. We learnt a bit more about coal mining and chimney sweeps and have all agreed we wouldn't want to do that now!
It has been an amazing week of learning in Holly Class and a huge well done to all the wonderful pupils :) I cannot wait to see more amazing learning next week!
