King's Hawford

29 April

Pre-Prep delve into their new termly topic.

Back up to full speed following the Easter break, our Pre-Prep pupils have really got stuck back into life at King’s Hawford and their topic for the term.

Making the most of the slightly milder weather that comes with the Summer Term, Year 2 have headed outdoors to fulfil their learning objectives on numerous occasions this week. Comparing and ordering lengths, pupils enjoyed utilising a range of resources including play dough and chalk to answer a number of mathematical problems.

Staying outside, Year 2 pupils were delighted to see their friends in Year 3, who joined the cohort for a reading session. Getting to grips with non-fiction texts, the pupils were able to complete a comprehension exercise based on hedgehogs with confidence. Pupils also enjoyed exploring the life of Dick King Smith, which links back to the Year 2 key text for the term, Hodgeheg.

And Year 2’s learning didn’t end there; in Science pupils enjoyed discovering different habitats, which again links to Year 2’s current topic of hedgehogs and woodland animals.

Year 1 have been equally busy both in and out of the classroom. Counting in twos and fives, pupils have been cementing their knowledge of number sequences. Having been introduced to their key text for the Summer Term, Sammy the Street Dog, during their English lessons, pupils have worked hard on developing descriptions, enabling them to write some fabulous story openers.

Delving into their science curriculum, Year 1 have loved getting out and about on our beautiful campus in order to identify seasonal changes as we move through the Springtime and into Summer. Extending the topic area, pupils went on to create some creative collages to bring the topic to life.

All in all this has been a busy week of learning for Year 1 and Year 2 as the first full week of the Summer Term draws to a close. Watch this space to discover how their learning develops over the course of the term.
