We have had another busy half term! Our big topic was 'Fire! Fire!' We learned a lot about The Great Fire of London. We talked about how the fire started, how it spread so quickly and how we have adapted since. The children were very engaged with this topic and used some fantastic historical questionning.
Year 1 and 2 have been very busy in maths learning how to add and subtract (yr 2 have been adding and subtracting two digit numbers). They have use concrete apparatus, used written methods as well as mental maths to calculate.
During English they immersed themselves in the story 'Vlad and the GFOL' and wrote a diary entry as though they were there. The vocabulary that they used was very impressive and the stamina they had for their writing was amazing.
Our book event for this half term was 'Cops and robbers'. We are very thankful that so many relatives came in to class to join in with the activities!
We finished the year with a bang by taking part in our amazing Christmas concert!
This half term for international day we looked at the country of Norway. The children were able to locate the country on a map, learn some basic Norwegian greetings, painted the Northern lights and made a Norwegian vegetable salad.
