Our Topic is: Sheffield a lockdown City. 


Our Philosophical Question:

Is Sheffield a good city to live in during lockdown?


We have been learning about Sheffield. We have be observing our streets to see what types of building we have in our areas that we live in. 


We have made tally charts of these and have used Purple Mash to turn them into block graphs. 


The children have been thinking about the materials needed to make a house and draw what's inside their own homes. 





During Lockdown it has snowed and we have enjoyed experiencing what the snow is like. We did some Science experiments in the snow. We made snow volcanoes and we did an experiment to measured how much water was in the snow. The children also enjoyed playing in the snow and writing about the snow.

Science experiment: Edward collected the snow, timed how quickly it melted and the recorded how much water was in the snow.

In phonics our FS2 children are currently learning their Phase 3 sounds and learning how to segment and blend the sounds together to make words. They are also working hard to learn the tricky words by sight.  Our Year 1 children are learning their Phase 4 sounds. They are learning to read them, spell them and use them in sentences. They are also learning tricky words that they have to read by sight and spell. 

In RE we are learning about Lent. We have been thinking about what are Lenten promises are. The children have also enjoyed the Tenten collective worship tasks. 

Maxwell's Lenten promise.

In Numeracy our FS2 children are leaning to add two number less than 10 together and start trying to write down addition sums. They have also been finding which groups has more and which has less. 

Our Year One children are learning to add and subtract with the number up to 20.
