Class Weekly Update - 12th September 2019

12 Sep 2019

This week we have really started to get used to the routines and expectations of being in Year 1 and 2. We have started thinking about our Families Topic this week. We thought about families we have heard about from stories and films and how they are all different. For example, Cinderella has a small family which includes her stepmother and stepsisters (and some mice!), but Gru from Dispicable Me has a very big family (three adopted children, his wife and lots of minions!). 

In our Maths work we have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes. We have started to learn the names (from triangles to octagons and spheres to square-based pyramids!) and some of their properties. We have some fantastic 'Shape Experts' in class who can tell us all about sides, vertices, edges and faces. On Wednesday we even made some of our own 3D shape models from playdough whilst talking about these properties.

In our English work we have been creating our own island adventure stories after reading Grandad's Island by Benji Davies. We drew maps of our islands which included lots of interesting places and exciting hazards. Some islands had dinosaur areas, stables, jungles and there were plenty of volcanoes. We then wrote our stories down using our map to remind us of what our journey on the island was like. Today we have been looking for common nouns. We learned that they are 'things' and our writing wouldn't make much sense without them. 


We have needed to amend our class timetable due to staffing changes on various days of the week. Therefore this will mean that we will need to change the days where we do PE and Eco. 
Starting from NEXT WEEK PE will now be on Monday afternoon and Eco will be on Thursday afternoons with Mrs Cooper. We will do Eco tomorrow morning, however next week it will be on Thursday. Please speak with me if you are unsure.
