Bumblebees Learning: Weeks beginning 28.1.19 - 4.2.19
We have been learning about money! We have been learning all about the different value coins and notes. We have realised that not every number has a coin or a note. There is no three pence coin! So we have also been learning how to make the same amount using different coins. We have learnt that sometimes you have to give more money than you need to if you do not have the correct amount and that you get money back. This is called change.
We have also been learning about instructions and have been learning to use imperative (bossy) verbs to write our own instructions. We are going to be writing our own recipes for Fruit Skewers and then filming ourselves pretending to be TV chefs! So watch this space for more photos and maybe a video or two.
Bumblebees Learning: Weeks beginning 7.1.19 and 14.1.19
We have been learning to tell the time using analogue clocks! We have learnt o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to. We also have learnt about the different intervals of time - seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years! We then answered problems involving time e.g. How many hours are we at school in the morning if we start at 9 o'clock and finish for lunch at 12 o'clock.
In Literacy we have been reading traditional stories from other cultures. We read the story The Sweetest Song and we wrote our own versions of the story. If you ask your child, not only will they be able to retell the original story then will be able to tell you their own version using the story's structure.
Bumblebees Learning: Weeks 3.12.18 and 10.12.18
This week we have finally managed to create our Ball Art. We first predicted what might happen if we bounced or rolled our balls once they had been dipped in paint. Then we did it! We were quite surprised but also delighted with the outcomes!
We also explored how we could change the shape of a solid material such as Play-Doh by rolling, twisting, cutting and stretching.
We learnt about common 2D shapes and their properties e.g. how many sides, corners or lines of symmetry each shape has.
Bumblebees Learning: Weeks 19.11.18 and 26.11.18
We have had so much fun in our dance lessons over the past few weeks. Here we are all pretending to be spiky conkers that have fallen off the trees!
In Year 1 the children have been learning to count in twos and fives, spotting the different patterns. Some of us can even write the related multiplication facts! In Year 2 the children are learning the relationships between multiplication and division. They are starting to use equipment to help them as well as pictures.
We have been learning about non-fiction texts and how they are different from fiction. We are learning about the Olympics and are going to design posters telling people all about it.
Bumblebees Learning: Weeks 5.11.18 to 12.11.18
We have been learning to use different strategies to add and subtract. Year 1 have been using ten frames to add two numbers together that total more than 10. Year 2 have been using pictures to help them add two 2-digit numbers together.
In Literacy we have been learning about fantasy stories and writing our own versions of them. We have travelled the World on a bus, collecting animals along the way who needed our help! Now we are about to learn about non-fiction books so watch this space!
