Our new reading corner
Here is a sneak peak of our new reading corner. We are enjoying getting cosy and reading amongst the clouds and hot air balloons! Lots of the children have been caught reading in very unusual places at home as well: under the table, in an aeroplane and even reading upside down!

 

 

 

 

Homework Topics
For our creative homework task over the holidays, year 1 have been very busy finding out about different inventions and inventors for our new topic ‘Who thought of that?’ We have had robots that produce glitter, phone fixing machines and research on a range of inventors; from the person who created Lego to the person who invented the toilet! The children are really enjoying becoming inventors themselves in this new topic!

 

 

 

 

Music
In music we have been learning about different styles of music. So far we have listened to Blues music, Latin music and Baroque music. We tried to play along on the glockenspiel.

Year 1&2 AT1&2 (B) Topic Web_How has London changed 2019_20

Why Does the Union Jack Have Three Colours?
During our topic ‘Why does the union jack have three colours?’ we have been looking at different foods from the UK in our DT lessons. We tried the different foods (product analysis), wrote a recipe to make scones and then we enjoyed making our own scones! Finally, we evaluated our own product (product analysis). We had lots of fun during this topic, as it was very practical!

Mountains
The children have been exploring the different mountains of the UK this week in geography, we found that Ben Nevis was the highest mountain! We also enjoyed making our own mountains and discussing the different contours.
