This half term our topic is 'Come on England!'
We will have lots of fun exploring our local area and producing leaflets about it. In English we will be reading 'The Building Boy' and writing our own story based around it.
We love to read in Penguins class!
We have daily comprehension lessons to develop our understanding, inference, prediction and sequencing skills. In these lessons we enjoy reading a range of texts including stories, non-fiction and poems. Once a week, we read one-to-one to an adult during our guided reading session.
Don't forget... whenever you read at home to get your adult to initial in the home section of your planner. When you have finished your book put it in the 'I need a new book' box so you change it for a new, exciting home read book.
Continuing from Year 1, we have a daily phonics lesson. Each Monday we have a spelling quiz based on the previous week's learning.
Each Monday we will have a mental maths quiz alongside our spelling quiz.
This half term P.E. will be on Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure you have your full P.E. kit with you.
On Monday 18th March, Abi's mummy and her lovely baby brother came to visit us. We learnt lots about how babies develop and how to look after them.
We all had a great time!
During British Science week, we investigated how far the germs in sneeze can travel! First we estimated how far we thought the germs could travel before we tested it using a water spray. We then investigated how putting a hand or tissue in front can help to trap germs and stop them from spreading!
On Tuesday 22nd January we visited The Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds. We had lots of fun investigating how the human body works before travelling back in time to 1854 Scutari to help Florence Nightingale to improve hospital conditions there.
