Year 1/2 – Amber

Welcome to Amber Class

Friday 17th May

 

We've had another great week in Amber Class! laugh  Here's a taste of some of the things the children have done...

 

  • Y1s have been subtracting numbers up to 20 and learning odd/even numbers
  • Writing stories set at the beach
  • Drawing a self-portrait
  • Singing 
  • Practising throwing and catching skills

 

Well done to Y2 for trying really hard in their SATs reading tests. We'll be doing the maths papers next week. 

 

Our class assembly will be on Thursday 6th June at 9.15am. All welcome! There will be a reminder letter in your child's bookbag. I'm sure you'll hear your child rehearsing our song, poem and words at some point laugh 

 

Remember to visit Woollen Woods! This year, the children have created butterflies for our school tree. Thank you to Mrs Kerry for coming up with the idea for us to make butterflies and for providing all the materials (and the fab introductory assembly to get the children inspired!). The event is on from Saturday 18th May until Monday 27th May at the Deer Park woods in Belper. Visit https://www.belpertowncouncil.gov.uk/news/2019/04/belper-woollen-woods-18-may-2019 for more info. 

 

Have a lovely weekend!

Friday 1st March

 

We hope you all had a lovely half term holiday.

 

This half term our topic is "What a Wonderful World!"  Take a look at the topic web to find out what the children will be learning about.

 

This week the children have been using money (please continue this at home by involving the children in your visits to the shops) and learning animal poems. Click on the links below to hear 2 of the poems we've read!

In Science lessons, the children have been finding out about adult animals and their babies and about the life cycles of cats, butterflies and frogs. 

 

In Personal, Health and Social Education, the children discussed different feelings and emotions and had their face photographed to show that emotion/feeling. Back in the classroom, there was lots of fun and laughter as they worked out what their friends' faces showed! 

 

Next week

  • Adrian Farmer, a local historian, will be visiting us on Wednesday 6th March to talk about Milford's local history
  • World Book Day on Thursday 7th March - come dressed as a book character. We'll be doing lots of activities around a range of books.
  • English - writing animal poems
  • Maths - investigating how much capacity different liquids measure
  • Science - discussing how we change from babies into adults
  • Design Technology - creating mini allotments. Please bring in a small takeaway tub for your child to create their allotment by Wednesday 6th March. 
  • Personal, Health and Social Education - more work exploring feelings and emotions. What colour would happiness be? What animal would happiness represent? What about anger? 

 

Thank you for your continued support with reading and homework. Please read regularly, ideally every night if you can, and note down your comments in the green reading record. Reading is the key to knowledge and we find it really does make a huge amount of difference to your child's enjoyment of school. 

 

Have a great weekend! Hope you get out and about and have loads of fun together.

As always, the children have been working really hard and having lots of fun - well done everyone! 

 

Next week they will continue to learn about plants and flowers. The children will be finding out about different types of trees. They will also be reading Jack and the Beanstalk and completing activities around this story. In maths, the children will be practising their multiplying and dividing facts. 

 

We love the children bringing things in from home so anything Jack related would be warmly received! 

 

Enjoy your weekend!

This week in English the children have been learning about diaries. Feel free to encourage your child to write a diary and bring it in to school to share with the class. In lessons next week, we'll be writing diaries. 

 

Maths this week has been about adding! The Year 1s have been adding 1 or 2 more to a number. The Year 2s have been adding multiples of 10 and 11, 12 and 13 to any 2-digit number. Have a go at home if you get chance!

 

The children are working hard learning their lines for the Christmas play. Well done everyone! The singing is fantastic too smiley 

 

During PE lessons, the children have been practising their balancing skills. Adam, our coach, has been teaching the class to use their eyes and body when using their balance. 

 

Next week the children will continue to write diaries. They'll learn about subtraction in maths and begin to design their London vehicle in topic.

 

Have a lovely weekend! 

Peace Workshop

As part of Anti-bullying week, we walked to the chapel to take part in a 'Peace' workshop. The children loved learning about the meaning of peace and listened well to Bible stories.
