1/2B

Welcome to Class 1/2B!

Here you will find photos and information about of some of the exciting things we get up to in 1/2B. Our class works extremely hard but we also have lots fun on our learning journey. You will see that we love to share and celebrate in our class' achievements!

 

Reading at home each night and taking part in homework tasks that are set are essential to support the children further in their learning. Please feel free to come and see me if you have any concerns or questions. My door is always open.

 

Thank you for all your support.

Science

The children have been learning about plants and what they need to grow. On this afternoon the children got the opportunity to plant their own seeds which we  hope will grow into lovely, healthy plants. We take turns to water them each day to ensure they get what they need.

Mathematics

 

This week the children have been learning about money in their maths lessons. They are now able to identify the different coins and find different ways to make up certain amounts. We have talked about how dealing with money is a very important life skill!

PE

In our PE lessons this term we have been doing gymnastics in the hall with an expert gymnast instructor. The children have learnt lots of different  postures, positions and movements. They have had a fantastic time developing these skills week by week and building them up to form a sequence.

Design & Technology 

 

This week the children took on the challenge of creating a healthy pasta salad. They were given a design brief and challenged by our school chef to create something both healthy and delicious that could be served in our school canteen. First we evaluated existing products to give us ideas, we designed our salad and then we spent time in the food science room creating our designs. Once we had completed this process we then evaluated our pasta dishes and the children had the opportunity to taste one anothers.

Mathematics

 

Over the  next few weeks the children will be unpicking the calculation mulitiplication. Today they used counters to represent different multiplication sentences to create an array.

Feuerstein

 

Inspired by the work of Profressor Feuerstein we have been getting in touch with our emotions. The children are presented with a person showing a certain emotion and we look carefully for logical evidence to back up our thinking as to what it could be. We then look at different situations and identify if they have that emotion and how strong it is. We are hoping that this skill will help us to be less impulsive in all aspects of school and to have a better understanding of other people.

Geography 

 

This afternoon we explored Seaforth! Following a planned out route we walked through the village and identified key landmarks that Seaforth has to offer. The children were excited to talk of their own experiences of Seaforth and the places that they have visited or go to. Some children even spotted where they lived!

Mathematics

 

Today the children were challenged to find the missing number in a number bond. Using plates and counters the children experimented with finding out what two numbers (parts) go together to make the whole amount.

English 

 

Today the children made jam sandwiches. We used this activity in order to inform some instruction writing in our English lesson. The children thought carefully about the order of the steps and the instructions they would need.  We imagined that we were telling/showing somebody what to do who didn't know how to make a sandwich!

Art & Design

 

Inspired by the matchstalk men in the work of L.S. Lowry today the children tried to recreate those figures using clay. They rolled and moulded the clay to create shapes. Some of us found it easier than others!

Creation Home Challenge Award

 

The children were set a challenge to create something to celebrate creation. They were able to make something, draw pictures or to do some writing. The children loved this challenge and I was blown away by their efforts. Look how proud they are!

This half term are art lessons are inspired by Weather art. Today the children created their very own weather mobiles. They used collage materials to decorate them so they were bright and colourful. They loved this activity and were very proud of the results!
