We used manipulatives and tens frames to help us when working out one less than and ten less than 🔢
Today we used drama to immerse ourselves in character scenarios from our class text: The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me 🎭
Today we consolidated some of our topic learning on a visit to our local animal park and had a great adventure!
Our Science investigation on push and pull forces (in sports) generated the question: How much force will make a ball travel the furthest? 🎾⚽️
Today our Y1 numeracy learning was about sorting objects and preparing to count. Objects can be sorted by their shape, colour and size. We also realised that objects can be sorted by their type. We discovered that when we line our objects up, it makes counting easier.
In KS1, we enjoyed matching 🇫🇷 vocabulary to the correct sporting activity. It was surprising to see some of the words were very similar to our English words for sports!
Our new Y1 children enjoyed collecting scores in our Olympic themed activities yesterday.
What a great way to practise our number skills!
We are always going for gold🏅
It is amazing to see our super confident reading champions taking over at story time! We are enjoying sharing our favourite stories from home 📖
After considering what medicines can include and how they might look, we discussed some real life scenarios and thought about how we would handle the same situation. The children then wrote about what they had learned.
KS1 children in our Keppel house team enjoyed their amazing treat day!
We really enjoyed today’s storyteller reading her favourite book! 📖
We are so lucky to have great readers who like to share their favourite books in Y2!
We love it when we have storytelling volunteers…
We love working with our Chinese partners as part of an international project. After exchanging ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ stories, we have learned about a traditional Chinese story called ‘The Three Monks.’ We learned the story in English, then the children were really enthusiastic about reading the story in Chinese. Watch our video to see […]
Keep it up 2WB!!
Today we thought about what plants need to grow. We thought of some important scientific questions that we wanted to answer. We got ready to plant a bean using compost. Mrs B is trying to grow a bean on a wet paper towel so that we can compare what happens. Mrs O […]
Don’t forget to continue Beat The Street while you are out and about 😀👍🏻
As part of the Big Pedal competition, today we were celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. The children came to school in Non-Uniform and wore something green to raise awareness on we can do to help the environment. We discussed how the world can change outside of our own windows. #BigPedal2021
Today we read a school reading book electronically, choosing from the non-fiction genre. Our task was to make a poster for the book and include any new facts that we had just found out. Beautifully presented – well done 2WB!
We were lucky to be able to keep our music lessons while home learning. We started with repeating chants, using different voices. Can you tell which is the sad chant and which is excited? We began to learn a new song with actions We finished with some rhythm work We just had time to share […]
Today we looked at items of equipment for an experiment. We put them in a list. We made a prediction about using the equipment. Next, we watched or participated in 3 different experiments: Fizzing Potions Milk Swirls Rainbow Skittles We even made our own videos… Finally, we drew and wrote about our observations… We really […]
Children in 2WB supported our Christmas Jumper day, looking fabulous!
Mrs Slack has been praising her reading champion for working so hard – it is definitely paying off 👍🏻😀 Well done!
We then wrote about the key points that we agreed or disagreed with from the story.
Working on strategies to support times tables has definitely helped – with a 12/12 success story this week! Well done to Mrs Slack and her group who are working really hard 👍🏻
Today we continued our silhouette art work with Mrs Robbins. We have been adding patterns and geometric shapes to our silhouettes, I wonder what we will add next…
In our outdoor maths session, we looked for arrays in our new KS1 outdoor learning area. Arrays help us to do repeated addition in our maths learning. We thought about how we make and use arrays. Children carefully constructed outdoor objects to make rows and columns, enabling them to skip count items quickly.
Any excuse for cake! 😉
