World Book Day

We all absolutely loved dressing up for World Book Day in March. In Rabbits, reading stories is one of our favourite things to do, so we took great pride in coming to school as some of our favourite book characters. 

Can you guess who some of us might be? 

Our learning 

In English, we have been focusing on re-telling the story of 'The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark' by Jill Tomlinson. In Year 1 and 2 we have also been focusing on our letter formation and handwriting, with the help of our new, wonderful handwriting lined English books. We have all been developing our writing skills through the use of descriptive writing, and even through the use of speech. 

To support this, we even wrote our own firework poems, to tell Plop the owl what he would see 'on firework night'. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Maths, we have been deepening our understanding of place value, through counting, partitioning numbers, comparing numbers, and learning number facts. In Year 1 and 2, we have all been using our 'deeper thinking' skills, to help us explain and give reason to our answers. 

 

In Science, we have been learning about seasonal changes. We have enjoyed learning about how the different seasons bring different weather types, and have even been learning about day and night. 

To further explore this practically, we used a torch to represent the sun and shone it onto the globe to see where it is day and where it is night. We enjoyed looking at the different places in the world, and identifying them with our friends.

Shining Stars! 

Year 1 and 2 recently enjoyed taking part in the annual Sing Spring celebrations, held at St Martins Primary School. They confidently sang a selection of Spring songs as part of a choir, and then sang their own Spring flowers song with such beautiful, sunny voices! 

We were all SO proud of them for showing such determination, confidence and enthusiasm; they really blew our crowd of families away! ⭐
