Brompton Westbrook Primary School

Year 1/2 Blog

Are you fed up with asking the question 'How was school today?' and getting the response 'fine'?

Our new weekly blogs will give you more information about what your child is doing in school. This will mean that you can ask meaningful questions to find out about their learning.


Week commencing 18/09/2017

Year 1 will be doing more work on their topic, "It's all about me".  They will be thinking about their special places and the things that make them happy.  In maths they will continue counting and 1-1 correspondence.  Some children will be starting to learn their number bonds.

Year 2 will begin their topic on the Great Fire of London.  They will be learning new facts and using thse to compare London in the past and present.  During science, the children will begin to explore materials and describe their properties.  In numeracy, Year 2 will be looking at place value.
