Maths

We have been working hard in Maths. Number formation can be quite tricky so we have been spending some time practising writing outr numbers the correct way round. Both Year 1 and 2 have been learning our number bonds up to 20 and some of us can remember our number bonds to 100! We are trying really hard to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tablesand have  been using arrays which help us with this.

literacy

Our first text map was about a newspaper report and we reported that unusual incidents and strange noises had occurred in Batley. 

Our new text is based on the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. We are learning the text map and have added lots of actions to help us remember the words. The text also has speech in it so we are learning about speaking in a different voice to become the different characters in the tale. 

Topic

Our recent topic was all about our local area: Batley. We had lots of fun looking at Batley on a map and finding our houses on Google maps! The local area has lots of interesting buildings in it and we spent some time looking at the features of the local park. We especially enjoyed finding out about the Foxes Biscuit Factory and then designed our own biscuit.
