KS1 – Newsletter – 24.3.23

On Tuesday, it was World Poetry Day. Year One have been focusing on Poetry in their English lessons, firstly writing a poem about colours in the rainbow using similes. In Year Two English, the children are looking at the description of characters and settings using their book ‘The Mousehole cat’ and have been using conjunctions to join their sentences.

In Maths, Year One have continued their work on measurement. One group has been measuring and reading measures using centimetres. The other group has been looking at mass and comparing which things are heavier and lighter. Year Two have been begun looking at fractions. They are firstly looking at what fraction of a shape has been shaded and also whether they could colour a certain fraction of a shape.

Our History has linked with RE this week, as we looked at how Easter has been celebrated throughout history. We learned of how the Tudors crawled through churches to kiss Jesus’ statue, The Victorians painted and rolled eggs, in the war, fighting paused and now we do egg hunts.

We had a bit of a damp Forest Schools session this week. Some of the children worked with Mr Gamble, to plant some trees around the perimeter of the school. Others had fun whittling, playing in the tree house and Mud kitchen and generally exploring our Forest Schools area.

We have continued with our Seasons poems in Science this week. We have been writing more parts to them and practising performing them together. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our Poetry event on Monday, where you will be able to hear some of our poems.
