Topmarks Hit the Button - Mental Maths Practice
This term we will be starting 'Monster Maths' twice a week. 'Monster Maths' has been designed to help improve children's recall of number facts, such as number bonds, multiplication facts, etc. Being fluent with basic number facts will enable the children to solve more complex calculations, either mentally or using written methods. 'Monster Maths' will involve the children completing a small timed quiz twice a week to improve their accuracy and speed of recall. The children will be allocated a phase that best fits their needs in mental maths and, once they have mastered a phase, they will move onto the next one. The link below outlines the progression of skills throughout the 'Monster Maths' program. Any questions, feel free to pop in and see Miss Johnson.
Spring Term 2019
Welcome back Year 1 and 2! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. We have another term filled with lots of exciting learning.
Our topic this term is 'Poles Apart’. Please have a look at our topic overview which give you more information about what we are covering.
Topic Overview - Poles Apart
When we arrived back into class in January, we were greeted by a strange parcel. After closely inspecting the postage stamps, we predicted that it must have gotten lost in the post from the Antarctica. We were very excited to open it and discover what was inside... to our amazement, it was an emperor penguin (which we decided to call Waddle).
We have had a busy first week back. We are enjoying learning about the polar regions, especially about penguins!! Look at our fabulous penguin art work.
To launch our new topic 'London's Burning', the History Lady came in and brought the 'Great Fire of London' to life in our classroom! She brought in all of her interesting artefacts and costumes for us to look at - we even got to dress up!! We really enjoyed using the water squirter in the playground! We learnt a lot of facts about the 'Great Fire of London' and we can now use them in our Topic work.
