Year 1 and 2 Foxes, Badgers and Squirrels

Welcome to Year 1 and 2

 

Here you will find all of the termly homework and newsletters for Foxes, Badgers and Squirrels classes, as well as information about some of the exciting activities that we have been doing in school. Children will be given spelling and Maths homework on a weekly basis and we ask that parents hear their children read  at least 4 times a week, as we see the best progress in those children who read regularly at home with an adult.

Many thanks for your support in helping your child improve.

Amazing Homework! - October 2019

The children in Year 1 and 2 have been busy bees!  Just look at these pieces of homework.

Building bridges in Science - October 2019

 

In Science today we experimented with making bridges out of Lego and paper. The Lego was used for the supports and then we were given one piece of paper to try to make as strong as possible. First, we tried laying it on top but it wouldn’t hold very many cubes. Then we tried 2 pieces of paper but this still was not strong enough. Our teacher then told us how corrugated cardboard was made and this gave us an idea! We folded our piece of paper so it became a concertina. This made it much stronger and was able to hold many cubes.

What's in the parcel? - October 2019

 

The children were surprised to see a parcel left in the classroom.   They had no idea where it had come from.  The children discussed what it might be and what was inside it.  They decided that it would be a great idea to open it, so we played pass the parcel. Inside each layer was a clue.  The clues were about a book.  Finally, the children made predictions and listened to the story.

SUPERHEROS have arrived at Abbotswood - September 2019

This afternoon the Year 2 children made superheroes from lollipop sticks and found materials. The children then thought about what characteristics made a good superhero and wrote them down.  Finally, the children linked their Topic and their English learning by writing sentences using the conjunction ‘and’ and ‘but’.

Alfie brought in this brilliant carousel that he made with a little help from his Grandad. If you turn the handle the horses move around. The children and myself had great fun listening to Alfie tell us how he made it. Well done Alfie (and Grandad)!

In Science this week, we have been learning about the properties of materials and thinking about why different materials are used to make different objects. We had to think about why a baby or child would use a plastic cup and an adult would use a one made of glass.

Today we had some unwanted visitors! - September 2019

There was an emergency in the library and both year groups were called for help! To their surprise, they saw a huge mess left by some unwanted visitors... The children had to investigate and question why this happened and make their predictions. After reading the story - 'Send for a Superhero!' the children realised it was Filth and Vacuum!
