The Great Fire of London
On Monday 12th September, we were very lucky to have a visit from a real historian! Sandra came in to help us learn all about the Great Fire of London. She taught us about what life was like in 1666 and how the fire started. We then learnt how the fire spread and what happened to the people living in London. What a disaster!
Afterwards, we had chance to be historians too! We took part in an archaelogical dig to find artefacts and materials from different eras. We discovered which were new and which were old.
In Year 1/2 we have been exploring how we present numbers in a range of ways. We have been using objects, pictures and drawings to show differences between numbers.
During the week 19.09.16, Year 2 were focusing on how many tens or ones (units) two-digit numbers have. E.g. 65 has 6 tens and 5 ones. We compared two numbers by thinking about 'how many more / less tens' each number had. We also learned the symbols for greater or less than > <
During the week 19.09.16, the Year 1 children were introduced to the language of tens and ones and used this knowledge to help them compare some larger value numbers (above 50!) Well done everyone for your hard work!
Well what a super start to our week! We are really looking at a range of Super SPAG elements in our writing.
SPAG = Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
Monday was all about Nouns. We learnt that nouns are words that tell us a person, place or a thing. We explored a range of items in our classroom, as well as places we had thought of too. Both Year 1 and 2 tried really hard to think of a range of words - great job everyone!
Years 1 and 2 Trip to Smart Trees
Children in Years 1 and 2 enjoyed a festive visit to Smart Trees near Pershore in early December.
The children went on a treasure hunt in the Christmas tree maze. They dropped coins in the magic well, petted real live reindeer, posted letters to Santa and met the man himself.
