Year 1/2 Miss Bass Class Round up
The children in Year 1 and 2 have been super busy since our last blog.
In science we have been learning about materials. We have been conducting lots of experiments to identify the properties of each material. Recently we conducted an experiment to see if materials were waterproof or absorbent.
In geography the year one children have been learning about the 7 continents of the world including what the climate is like and the animals and landmarks in these continents. They have also learnt about the 5 oceans of the world including some interesting facts about each ocean. They have learnt that the UK is a small country in Europe. In year 2 the children have been learning about physical and human features and have been comparing these features between two continents – Africa and Europe.
In PE the children have started to learn the basic skills of tennis such as how to balance the ball and walk around without dropping it. This week we went on a school trip to Eston Leisure Centre for our Fundamental Skills session. The children completed six different activities which involved throwing, balancing, passing, jumping, running and many other skills.
In music the children have continued to create Samba music but have also started to learn some Easter themed music, they practiced clapping the beat first and then sang the song.
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.
