Welcome to Year 1/2
This half term we have been busy settling into our new classes and starting our first exciting topic.
We have been learning where different animals come from in our Geography lessons and learning about all the different species of animals in Science. We have even been on an exciting school trip to the New Forest Wildlife Park!
In English, we have been focusing on 'Talk for Writing' and learning the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'.
We now know the story off by heart and have written the whole story over the last few weeks!
We are also writing a recount of our school trip to the New Forest Wildlife Park.
We have started learning the first sounds from our Phase 5 phonics. We now know ay, ou, ie and ea
This half term we have been learning about the place value of numbers and adding and subtracting.
We have been enjoying the chance to swim this half term and have been focusing on our breathing and kicking skills in the water.
