Remember, reading books are still part of your weekly homework too. The children are now ‘trained’ to change their own reading book, once it has been read. This can be done however many times they wish in a week. 

Super Powers certificates 

Well done Emilia in 2B for earning our super powers certificate for showing worthiness towards our school values. Great work!

Well done to Ollie for achieving his class champ certificate. Great work!

We have thoroughly enjoyed our Maths topic 'Measurement'. We have used cubes and rulers to estimate and measure different objects in and around the classroom. We have completed our learning of measure this half term and have looked at cm, m, g, kg, ml and l. See our pictures of our work below. 

We even made pizzas by measuring all of the ingredients out! 

English

We are so excited to keep reading the next book from Jonny Duddle .... ‘The Jolly Rogers and The Monsters Gold’. Last half term, we created lots of great extended pieces of writing and applied all of our grammatical features. We then used tea bags to create a pirate map effect with our final poems on.

For our Summer Curriculum topic, we are answering the big question 'Are all islands like ours?' We have focused on Geography for our first topic and have learnt lots about the oceans, continents and locations of different places in the British Isles.

See our updates below of our work.

Above, are pictures of examples of our work. So far, we have located the oceans and continents of the world and we have started to look at the British Isles too. 


We have been learning the continents and oceans of the world. See us learning a song here.

For this half term, we are focusing on Art and DT topics and we will be updating our pictures as we learn more.

We have started to look at plants in our outdoor learning area.

Above are some examples of our work so far. We have thought about questions we would like to find out about plants and have started to discuss facts and information that we already know. 

Then, we made some observations about seeds and bulbs and labelled the parts of them. 

For our final experiment this half term, we have planted cress in different environments and watched them grow (or not grow). Miss Barratt thought hers would grow in a cupboard with no sunlight or water .... she was very wrong!
