What are we learning at the moment?

We  are currently immersed in our topic on the Great Fire of London. We are learning what happened, why and how things changed as a result of the Fire. We are learning about how we know so much about the Fire and how London in 1666 compares with London today. In Maths we are going to be starting a Maths Project. We will also be doing some programming on Purple Mash.


In the past...

In English we were reading and writing about the book 'The Building Boy'. We used a range of grammar and interesting vocabulary to create good quality sentences. We also about our family. In Maths we were looking at lots of different topics but starting with work on the four operations.


For the first week of the summer term we focused on writing an Easter recount and we celebrated Earth Day.

We launched our Fairy Tale Museum topic. We had a Fairy Tale Feast. In English we wrote a letter to our parents about the feast and in Maths we looked at Fractions. In Art we finished our lions which are now on display. We have finished our Safari topic by learning a bit more about Kenya. We compared our lives with the lives of children in Kenya. 


We completed a topic on Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion by Alex T Smith. We learnt about the illustrations, characters and settings. We also started comparing it to the tradition version of Little Red Riding Hood. In maths we learnt about 2D and 3D shapes. As part of our RE topic we visited St Mary's Church in Sawston to see why Churches are seen as special places.


We are going on Safari! On Monday and Tuesday we had our Sparky Start for our new topic and Miss Beech took us on a plane trip to Kenya. See below for a picture of our in flight snacks! We will be learning a bit more about Kenya and the wider continent of Africa and Safari. We look forward to sharing our work with you. 


 We are completing a mini topic on the Gruffalo. We will also learning all about coins and notes in Maths and in English we will be building up to writing our version of the Gruffalo. In Science we will be starting our new Science topic with Mrs Love. Remember PE is now on a Tuesday and Thursday!


Year 2 will be getting to know their new teacher, Miss Tarrant, who is joining them from Year 4! We will be carrying out our sparky start and finding out who is lurking in the deep, dark forest. We will also be starting to look at a famous artist and delving into some map work. Next week we are going to be looking at money.
