Mr Townsend's Class

Teaching Year 1/2 2016/17

Welcome back to the new Spring Term. This half-term our new topic is 'From the Ant to the Zebra' and the children have already enjoyed finding out about the differences between a village, town and city and locating the countries that form the United Kingdom and the continents and oceans of the world. In future weeks, we will be exploring rainforests, deserts and Antarctica as we travel from Europe. In English, we have been focusing on the story of the Rainbow Fish and have described an ocean setting and the Rainbow Fish himself!  We will continue to write a story based on the book. In maths, we have been learning about multiplication for the 2, 5 and 10 x tables and will move on to look at simple division and fractions.
