Autumn Term 2021
In Infant Class, we have started the year by exploring a range of maps of the United Kingdom. We have identified the United Kingdom on a world map as well as a globe. We have also looked at the four different countries that make up the United Kingdom.
We have had a fantastic first session at Forest School. We started our session by noticing the weather and seasonal changes. We then went on to look for bugs, insects, and birds. We discussed what animals may be living in certain areas on our school grounds. As well as this we chose three objects that were special to us. Many of us chose feathers and different colour leaves.
Summer Term 2021
In maths this half term we have revisited the ‘think 10’ strategy of adding and subtracting numbers by regrouping to make calculations more efficient.
The year ones combined two single digit numbers to make 10 and some more. They then moved on to subtracting a one digit number from a two digit number by going back to the previous ten.
The year twos added a single digit number to a double digit number by making the next ten then adding the rest. They then moved on to adding and subtracting two, two digit numbers by combining tens and ones using column methods.
In science we have been thinking about everyday materials. We have been identifying and sorting everyday materials such as metal, wood and plastic, discussing their properties and considering whether they are natural or man-made.
In computing we used Purple Mash to set up a spreadsheet to use in a pet shop. The children learnt how to add prices and calculate totals. We also used Purple Mash to compose our own soundtracks by dragging sound and instruments onto the composition grids. The children then appraised each other’s music and made improvements.
