Welcome back and a Happy New Year! We have had a short but busy week. We have enjoyed exploring poetry from other cultures in English, learning about the country of Kenya, where our new class text Handa’s Surprise is set and writing our own poems about Kenyan culture. We also learnt a Kenyan song ‘Jambo Bwana’, which we practised as a part of our music lesson. In Maths we have started to learn about equal and unequal groups as we are introducing multiplication this term. In Science, Mrs Howell led a very exciting lesson about plants, we discussed what we already knew from EYFS and Year 1 and built on this, exploring all of the places plants can grow before going outside to identify and tally the plants growing in the school grounds.
