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 19/02/2018

This week Year 1 are starting their new topic of "Who's the king of the castle?"  Children will be learning the story of Rapunzel and retelling it in their own words.  They will write character descriptions including using powerful words (adjectives).  In maths, they will be recapping their basic number skills, reading and writing numbers and understanding the place value of each digit in a 2-digit number.

Year 2 children are starting their new topic on "Heroes".  They will be introduced to 'The Lady of the Lamp'.  Children will not be told her name to start with but will use resources and information to work out who she was and what her role was.  Children will also be working on map skills, recapping their knowledge fo continents and finding out where Crimea is.  In numeracy, they will be developing their place value skills and learning about rounding to the nearest ten.  In addition, children will learn about 3d shapes and their properties.
