Year 1/2 Miss Bass Class Round up
We have been super busy in Year 1 and 2!
In maths the year 1 children have been developing a range of methods to tackle an addition or subtraction calculation. They have been using number lines and partitioning their number to do this. In year 2 the children have been investigating the properties of 3D shapes, learning about the faces, edges and vertices.
In English the children have been re-writing the story Jellybeans for Giants. The children have developed their own word mat of adjectives to use when describing the characters in their story. They have tried really hard to develop their use of punctuation by using question marks and exclamation marks in their writing.
In science we have been learning about plants. In year 1 the children learnt about wild and garden plants, the part of a plant and what they need to grow and survive. In year 2 the children learnt about what a plant grows from. We then planted some bulbs and seeds and predicted how they would grow under different living conditions. We also learnt what a plant needs to survive and the functions of each part of the plant.
In history we have been learning about what life was like for people when the Transporter bridge was built. We looked at transportation, clothing, toys and schooling. Last week we went on a trip to the Land of Iron museum where the children had the opportunity to dress up in the clothing that was used during this time. They also got to experience what schooling was like. We then got to visit the museum and look at a range of artefacts before going into the mine.
In geography we have been learning about the climate, equator and the Polar Regions. The children got their own maps and drew lines across to represent where these were. They then predicted what the weather and climate was like close to these places. We decided we wanted to know more about the climates around the world so we investigated the five main climate zones. The children enjoyed researching the typical climate in these zones.
In PE we have started a new topic of athletics. So far we have learnt a range of skills in running such as long distance, short distance/sprinting, relay races etc. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this. Especially being outside in the warm weather!
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.
This will continue in the new term.

In each episode we will see young creative minds come together to create bold and colourful outfits reusing, re-claiming and upcycling fabulous fashion by using only vintage, second-hand and sustainable materials.
The children will need to be great designers but do not necessarily have to be great with a sewing machine as they’ll be paired with a creative who can help them cut/sew/stitch/paint their outfits within a few hours!
