Year 1/2 Update

KS1 Term 3

This term in writing we have been looking at the story, ‘The Magic Porridge Pot.’ We have learnt the story with actions, innovated it with our own ideas and then spent time inventing our own stories. We are continuing our theme on magic by writing instructions for some magic potions!

In reading we have been looking at asking questions and recognising patterns and rhymes which we will continue to do throughout next term.

In mathematics we have been looking at place value which has included ordering and comparing numbers.

Our topic this term has been, ‘The Carnival of Animals.’ We have explored this piece of music by Camille Saint-Saens. We have been thinking about how the music is used to portray animal movement. We have also looked at how animals are classified and features of each classification group.
