Our Topic for Spring Term
This half term in Willow Class we will be learning about animals. If you are learning from home I will be adding work and resources to the relevant areas for you to teach from and access from home.
In RE we will be learning about different places of worship- specifically comparing a mosque to a church. We will be learning about the different parts of a mosque and a church and why these places are special to Christians and Muslims.
Year 1- Teach your Monster to read (phonics) game
Teach your Monster to Read is a series of games which helps children to master the key first stages of reading.
Your child will benefit more from the game if they can play at home. It’s free to play on a PC and laptop, or you can download the Teach Your Monster to Read app from the app store on phones and tablets (but you may have to pay for it)
To play on the website, visit teachyourmonstertoread.com and start playing in seconds.
You can log in to your child’s game using the details in their reading diary or via and email Mrs Orme has sent you, if she has your email address.
Our Topic this half term....
This half term, the children in Willow Class will be learning all about the circus! We will be using lots of circus equipment in school and watching short clips about what a circus tent looks like inside. So far this half term, we have experimented with lots of circus equipment in the hall and it was super fun. See below some of the photos!
Year 2 Maths- Times tables
Year 2s are learning about times tables, Time Tables Rock Stars and Hit the button are great websites to help your child. All Year 2s have logins in their homework diaries.
Forest School- 20.10.20
Today we made faces using leaves.
Art and DT
This half term we have made clown faces on eggs which was super fun!
We have also been learning about jesters because they were performers for the Kings and Queens, they would perform tricks and make people laugh just like clowns.
Year 1- Maths
This afternoon we learn about spirituality and did lots of fun activities. We tasted Smarties and said thanks to God, we said sorry and put out thumb print on a cross and we wrote names and put them in God/s hand to ask him to look after out friends, family and neighbours.
