This week we have been planning and writing our own fairytales. We tried to include good and bad characters, some magic and a happy ending! We wrote stories about princesses, mermaids and magic apples.

In Maths we have been doing our final revision in Year 1! We have remembered how to find 1 more and 1 less of a number and 10 more and 10 less of a number. We have also recapped how to identify and read numbers on a bead string before completing our final Maths assessment of the year.

In Science we have looked at the lifecycle of a plant and how tiny seeds turn to giant plants. We have recapped everything we have learned about plants this term.

In Topic, we have looked at the different Olympic medal designs and made our own.


Most teachers, I am sure, will mention how hot it has been this week at school! In our penultimate week, we used the outdoor grounds more than usual to stay cool and enjoy the space.

In Topic, we looked at a boxing phenomenon who transcended his personal sport of boxing and influence the world as we know it. Year 2 practised boxing drills such as skipping and shadow boxing, so that we can float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. Of course, this week we looked at Muhammad Ali.

In Science, we designed our own exercise plan. We need it to stay fit and healthy, as well as emulate the sporting greats of the past and present. We timed our efforts to see if we would improve the second time we completed the plan.

In Maths, we finally finished all learning objectives for Year 2! We completed our assessments for the most part and our final Abacus Workbook. It’s been a journey but, on the whole, the children have coped very well with the mathematical content this year.

In English, we added the suffixes ‘less and ‘ful’ to create adjectives to describe a multitude of images and to use in our general writing endeavours. We also worked at completing our final Phonics books.

Well done, one more week to go!


How wonderful it is when the sun starts shining again and you see all these bright butterflies flying everywhere. Year 1 and Year 2 made a colorful strip paper butterfly this week. It is full of colour and a great way for children to get creative!
