Year 1/2 Miss Bass Class round up
We have been very busy so far this term in Y1/2.
In History we learnt about who Captain Cook was and why he is important. To help us understand how he lived we went on a school trip to the Royal Navy Museum in Hartlepool where we got to explore the Trincomalee and learn lots about life at sea.
In writing, the children have been writing a recount of their recent trip to The Royal Nay Museum. The children learned lots of new and interesting facts throughout the day and they were excited to write about their day. Although the day was cold, the children had lots of fun and were able to expand their knowledge about Captain Cook.
In our Art topic we have been learning about a local artist named Lucy Pittaway. So far we have learnt about the type of artist she is and we have experimented with some of the techniques she uses in her own art.
With regards to maths, the children in year 1 have been focusing on the four calculations. The children have worked on adding two digits to a one-digit number, subtracting ones from tens and even been multiplying numbers by 2 and 10.
In year 2, the children have also been working on calculation strategies with increasingly harder numbers, then multiplying numbers and sharing into equal groups. The children have worked extremely hard to develop their understanding in maths!
In music, the children have been continuing working on Samba music, investigating the pulse of the music and using instruments to reflect this pulse.
Some of the children found this rather hard to begin with, but their skills improving weekly.
In PSHE, we have been discussing what our families do to help keep us safe. We have also talked about what we can do to show our families and the people around us that we care and why they are special to us.
Did you know we do a breakfast club every morning? You can bring your child in, knowing they’ll get a good breakfast before they start school.
This is open to everyone and can be booked in the clubs section on the school gateway app.
It costs £1.20 for each morning your child attends.
