Infants' School

Spring 2

What another fun filled half-term we have had!  We celebrated World Book Day and came to school in our pyjamas.  We did lots of fun book-related activities and  most importantly read lots of stories!  

 

 

 

Our class book this half term has been 'Where the Wild Things Are'. We compared characters and enjoyed retelling the story with our friends.  We then read Paddington's Post where the children got to read many letters.  The children were so interested in Paddington and his fascination with marmalade sandwiches that we decided to make our own and write the instructions out for other children to follow.

In Numeracy this half-term, we have been learning about different measurements.  We have measured length and weight using centimetres, weight and mass, volume and capacity and have even started learning to tell the time.  Ask Year 1 to tell you a time to the hour or half-hour and ask Year 2 to tell you the time using quarter past and quarter to! We enjoyed finding things in the classroom to measure with a ruler and compared objects to the height of ourselves.  We had great fun outside looking at capacity to see which containers held the most water.

In science we have all been learning about plants.  We have enjoying looking at a variety of flowers and seeds and learnt how they grow and change.  Year 1 planted some beans and kept a diary to see how they changed and developed over the half term.  Year 2 planted cress seeds to investigate what a plant needs to grow.  We put 2 pots in the sunlight but only watered 1 and we put 2 pots in the dark and only watered 1.  Ask the children to tell you what they found out !

We had a fabulous time as usual celebrating our international day and this half term we looked at Mexico.  The children are always keen to learn about a new country and its culture.  We made Mexican Salsa and wrote up the instructions ( we also really enjoyed eating it with our nachos).  The children made musical shakers and learnt some salsa moves-so watch out!
