September 2017 in Year 1/2

This month the children have settled into their new class really well. We have enjoyed working as a team and helping each other follow the routines. Our newest member of the class has been welcomed with open arms and it has been lovely to see everyone being so inviting and kind.

In Maths we have been focusing on using 100 squares and number lines to support addition. We have also been exploring the variety of resources available such as number beads, numicon, multilink cubes and dienes cubes to support our understanding of number bonds.

In History, we have really enjoyed learning about castles and I was very impressed with the amazing effort everyone put in for their homework task. We have been busy labelling the parts of a castle, describing how to stop an attack and discussing the best location for a castle to be built. In D&T we have been designing bunting for our castle, using symbols such as crowns and swords.
