Welcome to Year 1/2
We had the most lovely day at the Egypt Centre. All the children were so well behaved and had so much fun. The children completed three activites throughout the day lead by the kind volunteers at the centre. They completed a mummification on 'Bob' learning all about the process and why it happened. They visited the house of death where they had to weigh the heart of the Egyptian to see if it was lighter than a feather to pass onto the afterlife. They also looked at food the Egyptians ate and played an ancient Egyptian game of senet. They were also lucky enough to explore and handle real artefacts some as old as 50,000 years old! We hope they enjoyed their day and learned alot. We will be researching Egypt and the Gods more over the next few weeks!
Year 1 and 2’s Naughty Elf!
We have have had a very naughty elf in our class. He tipped all of the children’s paper chains onto the floor and left a HUGE mess! He asked the children to measure the paper chains to see which were the longest and the shortest.
This term our topic is flight and we decided as a class to look at space. The children have completed lots of work already learning about the planets in our solar system and the baboon that lives on the moon! They have been learning about recount writing and completed a recount and diary entry based on the aminated video (which you can see below ). They have been learning their numbers to 20 (Year 1) and 100 (Year 2) and they all did amazing work partitioning 2 and 3 digit numbers into tens and units. Some children even took it upon themselves to partition 4 digit numbers!!! We are very excited to show you lots of things we are doing in class this term so please check back soon!
