news archives This Week in Pre Prep


Year 1

This week in our maths lessons, we have been learning about multiplication. We began by looking at pictures of groups of objects and moved onto drawing arrays, and using our fingers to solve simple multiplication problems. In English, we re-read the story Winnie the Witch at the seaside and wrote our own exciting endings to the story! We tried hard to remember capital letters, full stops and fingers spaces, and challenged ourselves to use adjectives and conjunctions such as and, but and because. In our topic lesson, we looked at how people were entertained at the seaside in the past, and we discussed what we like to do when we go to the seaside. We then made our own Punch and Judy puppets. In Art this week, we have been adding to our seaside landscapes that we painted last week. They are looking really beautiful! We thoroughly enjoyed participating in the PTA climbing wall event on Thursday and had a great time at sports day on Friday! A very busy week in 1F this week!

Year 2

We have had a busy week in Year 2. In English we have studied adverbs and how they can make our written work more interesting. We have also written a newspaper report about the events in George’s Marvellous Medicine. In Maths, we have learnt about different forms of measurement including length and volume and capacity. Our ‘In My Garden’ topic has been fun and we have looked at how plants grow from seeds and how flowers are pollinated. In RS we have looked at the life of a Buddhist monk, and how they have a very strict life with only a handful of possession. We discussed which things in our life are important to us. We all thoroughly enjoyed the climbing wall on Thursday and everyone challenged themselves well. We finished the week with an excellent Sports Day, with lots of events and races. A great week all round.

Year 3

We have had a very busy week in Year 3. We started the week by giving our Year 1 magazines to our year 1 buddy. They really enjoyed reading them. In Maths we revisited our topic on time. In English we started our Rainforest project. We are gathering information to make our own book about the rainforest. In History we learnt about the people who live in a castle. We had great fun on the climbing wall on Thursday. On Friday we finished the week with Sports Day.
