In English this week our focus has been on Grammar. We have been looking closely at the structure of sentences and talked about nouns, verbs and conjunctions. Here are a few examples of what we’ve been working on.
In Maths this week, the Year 1’s have been using <, > and = to compare number sentences. They were then making their own number sentences by rolling dice or using number cards up to 20 and recording them. Year 2’s have been using Dienes to help partition to add 2 two digit numbers together and exchange 10 ones for 1 ten. They all tried really hard in maths this week.
This week in Topic the children have been working on plan views. We discussed what a plan view was and drew how we thought our classroom would look as a plan view. We then compared ours to a plan view of Tiln Lane, where we spotted Carr Hill.
On Friday during assembly, Mrs Alford introduced two new awards which are to be given out every week. The first is a Maths Star of the week and the other is an English Star of the week. The children will get a certificate and a trophy to keep on their desk to remind them of their achievement.
Travis received the English star for trying so hard during phonics when writing CVC words.
Ethan received the Maths Star for fantastic effort when exchanging tens for ones in addition and subtraction.
