Being The Best We Can Be

Owls Yrs 1 & 2

Making sweet potato soup

Friday 4th October 

What a busy few weeks we have had. We are moving onto addition and subtraction in maths, so please continue practising your number bonds to 10 for Year 1 and to 20 for Year 2.

In English, we are coming to the end of our work on Rapunzel and have written some superb diary entries, potions and wanted posters.

We had a fabulous time with Those History People and have finished our Great Fire of London houses. We are hopeful that the Fire Service will make a visit soon.

 

Houses and wanted posters

Those History People did an archaeological dig with Owls related to the Great Fire of London

Owls have been enjoying our text, Rapunzel by Bethan Woollvin, so far. We have been engaging in role play and hot seating. Owls wrote a diary entry as Rapunzel, recalling a day stuck in the tower and they have been making a witch's potion!

In topic they have been learning about life in 1666 and they have chosen some interesting jobs that they would have liked to do, like a rat catcher and a gong farmer. They have learnt about looking at evidence from the past and used Samuel Pepys' diary entries to inspire them to write their own diary entries of the Great Fire of London.

In Maths Owls have been working on reading and writing numbers. They have also been looking at different ways to represent numbers.

Class charter work

Welcome to our new Year 1s and welcome back to our very old Year 2s!

We hope that everyone had a super summer and are all ready to have a happy, hard-working and fun year.

Our topic this half-term is going to be 'The Great Fire of London'. We will also be looking at Fairy tales in English. In Maths, we will begin with place value. Year 1 will be starting off counting forwards and backwards in 1s from any given number and counting in twos and Year 2 will be counting forwards and backwards in steps of 2, 3, 5 and 10 from any given number.
