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 26/03/2018

This week Year 1 will be finding out how and why different people celebrate Easter.  They will be tasting Hot Cross buns and thinking of words to describe their taste and texture.

Year 2 children will be comparing the life and work of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.  They will discover what Mary Seacole did during the Crimea War and why Florence Nightingale is most remembered.  In numeracy, Year 2 will be recapping multiplication and start to see the relationship between multiplication and division.  They will also apply their strategies to answering word problems where they need to decide whether they are dividing or multiplying.
