Spring Term 2 - Week 2

Week 2

This week we have continued our learning around the text The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark.  The children continued to learn about expanded noun phrases and used them to describe a setting.  We also revisited how to spell verbs in the past tense and begun to write a short story using the past tense.

In Numeracy both Year 1 and Year 2 learnt to measure lengths. We learnt how to measure in centimetres and metres using rulers, tape measures and metre sticks. The children are confident in explaining what length is and how we must measure from 0 on the scale.

In Geography the children learnt what a physical feature and a human feature is. They had a photograph of Mote Park and had to label the features and group them using their new knowledge. In Science we learnt about habitats and how the camel and polar bear have adapted to survive in their habitats. I was very impressed with the children’s knowledge by the end of the lesson.

In RE the children learnt what a parable is. We read The Parable of the Lost Sheep. The children then had a cube and structured the parable on the outside and wrote the hidden meaning of the parable for most Christians on the inside of the cube.
