Year 1 - Birch (September 2022)
We have been busy in Birch! We have started our learning about “Everyday Materials” and have been searching out objects made from fabric, plastic, metal and wood. We have also been working on our teamwork skills and working in groups to sort objects into the materials they are made from. We have also been showing off our mathematical knowledge and using vocabulary like “more than, less than and equal to”.
Year 1/2 Cherry (September 2022)
In Cherry we have been super busy—getting to all about your new friends in our class AS WELL AS exploring colour mixing and sorting and discussing everyday materials. We have been to the library, done homework and been reading our fantastic new books.
Year 2 - Hazel (September 2022)
We have started our topic about Childhood which is a History based topic. The children have looked at photographs of Victorian artefacts and learned about and written about how the objects/toys /clothes were used. In Science we have started to think about Materials - wood, glass, plastic, stone, fabric and metal - and items which have been made from these, pointing at examples in the classroom. We have also begun our Harvest topic in R.E. and as an initial activity the children had lots of fun making fruit kebabs in the colours of the rainbow, to help them think about the 'fruits of the earth'. In Art we are beginning to think about primary and secondary colours, sharing a lovely book- 'Mix It!'
