Throughout this year pupils will bring home a list of their weekly spellings. These spellings will be based around the spelling patterns set out in the National Curriculum as well as spellings that Key Stage One children often find tricky! Please help your child learn these as they will also improve the quality of their writing. We have had a real focus on using Doodle Maths every night, this can only take five minutes but will really accelerate their mathematical understanding.
We have had some fun discovering all the different habitats across the planet as well as the micro habitats we have in the school! We searched around the school grounds to discover the habitats of animals. These included spiders, ladybirds, wood lice and even a millipede! This was all to support our understanding of our science topic 'Living Things and Their Habitats'.
During the first term we have worked really hard on securing our knowledge of place value. This included partitioning two digit numbers into tens and ones. We have also looked at what times tables we need to know by the end of Year 2 ( 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x) and have our own individual space rockets that we can colour in when we know all the facts!
Year Two and Year Four posted their Christmas letters to Santa! Fingers crossed for a response!
