                  Welcome back! 


It is fantastic to be back in school and welcome all the year 2 Pine children back into class. We have now been back a few days and the children have settled in really well and are getting used to the school routines again.


In maths we are learning about place value and how many tens and ones are in a number. For example 15 has 1 ten and 5 ones.  For the first 2 weeks in English we are using the text 'Here We Are'. We are using the text to help us write a guide to Earth. Our learning journey topic is Geography and our focus question is 'What do we know about Sheffield?' We have started by learning about the 7 continents and the 5 oceans. In PE this half term we have a fitness focus so we will be trying to improve our stamina while taking part in exercises.

Well done!

In PE we are learning how to keep fit and are taking part in Taekwondo!

We studied different objects and described them. We then grouped the objects based on whether they were hard soft or bendy.

In English we were writing questions using who, how and why. We used question marks for our questions. We based these questions on our class text ‘The Great Paper Caper’.

In PE we were are learning how to keep fit. We are doing this by learning Taekwondo.

In Art we are learning different collage skills: ripping, sticking and tearing.

In Maths we are learning how to count on. We used a number line to count on and to find out whether was larger or smaller than 15.

In English, we learned about prefixes. We looked at the prefix 'un' and added this to words and discussed how the meaning had been changed.

In Science we have learned about omnivores, carnivores and herbivores. We have also learned about the different animal classes. We have then used classification hoops to group animals and then explain why we have grouped the animals that way.

In reading we learned about rhyme. We identified words that rhyme in our story and then generated our own rhymes in groups.

Our Year 1 trip to Cannon Hall Farm! The children explored the farm and learned about the different animals that might live on a farm. We discussed what each animal use on a farm was for and what they produced. We petted animals and described how they felt. We classified animals as farm, wild or even household animals.We went on a tractor ride and even saw a ferret race!

Music. We were visited by Noemi and learned the songs for the Sir Scallywag concert. We learned about beat and used different musical instruments.

Subtraction. We used subtraction machines and objects to learn how to subtract. We counted how many objects we had and then the robot told us how many of our objects to subtract. We then calculated how many were left and wrote a number sentence.

Manor Castle Educational visit. We visited Manor Castle to learn about Mary Queen of Scots, learn about how homes and buildings have changed throughout history, to study local history and a significant person in history. We dressed in period clothes and made medicines in the apothecary as well as learn about the different areas and features of a castle.

Arithmetic Friday! Today we used numicon to calculate and learn our number bounds to ten. Some of us then calculated what 3 numbers create 10.

P4C! We used our class text 'Funnybones' to generate questions and then took it in turns to say our opinion and discussed the question: 'Is it okay to scare people?'

Rainbow Challenges! When the children aren't working in groups they are working hard to complete their Rainbow challenges! The Rainbow challenges are set on phonics, maths, English, handwriting, our current learning journey topic and reading.

Y1 Pine's first reading for pleasure session. We sat in our guided reading groups and read books from our familiar reading basket. We then talked about what we had read.

This week we have been learning about Creation. How we treat our own and others creations, how it feels if we disrespect or damage a creation and how to show respect and care for a creation.

This week in our construction area we were building different houses and homes linked to our learning journey topic.
