Lincoln LN1 2BB
We have had a wonderful first term of this academic year, and can’t quite believe how much we have managed to cram in!
The second half of the Autumn term is always a special one, full of Nativities and other Christmas celebrations! And amongst all the frivolities of the festive period, we have done some wonderful learning too!
Our Fireside Nativity in the forest was an extremely special time that will be imprinted in our memories forever. It was a wonderful opportunity for our families to join us in the forest and see what we have been working on, all while portraying the true meaning of Christmas. The children loved performing and singing, and wanted to do it again!
In English, Year 1 have been working really well on rhyme and pattern within poems and well-know rhymes, as well as beginning to grasp the word types and the impact they can have on our writing. Year 2 have been studying fantasy stories, and learning how to extend sentences and use the past and present tense.
Year 1 have worked on place value, number bonds, addition and subtraction as well as shape in Maths.. phew! They have showcased some amazing mathematical skills, and we are excited to see what the new year brings! Year 2 have also been working on length, position and direction and sequencing and fractions.
In Topic, both year groups continued to work on Under and Over the Sea which has been a really engaging and capturing topic title! We have gone from sea creatures, to boats, to floating and sinking, to pirates and beyond! We created our own messages in bottles after finding a message from somebody stranded on a desert island, which was very exciting and thought-provoking! We have since looked at desert island survival skills ourselves, and really thought about things we would need (food and water) and things we could perhaps live without (iPads!).
Next term, we are moving onto Fairy Tales and we cannot wait!
Have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
