Term 2 Week 1

First of all, a huge welcome back to all the Ivy Class children!  It has been wonderful to see so many happy faces back in school! Read below to find out how Ivy Class spent their first week back! :) 

In 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. 

This week in Maths, 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. I am so impressed with how quickly Ivy Class has got to grips with this week's Maths learning! Very impressive! 

In the afternoons, we have been just as busy (prepare to have your socks blown off!) 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. In R.E, we looked at ways we can save the planet and how this links to Christianity. In Topic, we have been introduced to famous buildings, sharing the current knowledge we have about them and then getting super busy (and a bit sticky) building our very own building structures using spaghetti, marshmallows, straws and blue tac! (The clean up was very interesting!) :)

Have a wonderful evening and keep an eye on the sky for those beautiful fireworks! :)
