Sunstone Year 1/2

Sunstone Class 2018-2019

Miss Brock

Sunstone Class will have dance and PE on Mondays. Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school.

As the weather is becoming cooler and unpredictable at this time of year. Please ensure your child has a coat with them everyday as we do outside learning as much as possible.




We have already been back at school for three whole weeks now. The children in Sunstone Class have been busy getting to know each other, their new classroom and their teacher.


This week in Maths we have looked at place value and counting. The children in year 1 have been ordering numbers and making them, while the children in year 2 have been busy making 2 digit numbers and representing them.


In English we have started to read "The Princess and The White Bear King". The children have been amazing at inferring from the pictures in the book! That's even before the book has been read.


We have also started Science this week and are looking at materials. We have been able to identify different materials so far and talk about their uses. The children particularly enjoyed our discussions about what would be a silly material for a chair, a cup and a toilet! They took great delight in explaining why.

In Maths this term the year 1 children have started to solve multiplication problems. They children have used equipment to solve the number problems. They have then move on to division problems by sharing and grouping different amounts. The children have enjoyed sharing different amounts between a few of their teddy friends. The year 2 children have been looking into fractions. They have been able to find fractions of a number and shapes.


This term in English the children have been writing various diary entries in the role of different characters from the book 'Toby and the Great Fire of London'. The children have been able to use their own facts about the Great Fire of London to include in their diary entries. The children then moved on to use their facts to create their very own information booklets.


This term in Science we are looking at the topic of 'Animals including Humans'. The children are busy learning about healthy eating and a balanced diet. The children have already designed their own healthy lunch boxes. The year 1 children have had a very important meeting about keeping their teeth clean while the year 2 children have been busy learning the names and jobs of the different teeth.

History Off the Page Day

The children were very lucky to have a brilliant 'History Off the Page Day' experience. They experienced what life was like during 1666. The children were able to make their own ink, write with quills, make candles, make bread, tether leather book marks, weave and many more activities. Throughout the morning the children took on the role of apprentices at different shops and businesses. Some children were busy pulling down houses and putting out fires. During the afternoon the children became archaeologists, they had to dig to find what was left over from the fire. A long with the activities the children learnt lots of great interesting facts to take away and use in their learning.   



Welcome back and Happy 2018!

The children have come back to school and are ready to go.

This term our ICE Zone topic is 'The Great Fire of London'. We have already so many questions to research and find out about.

The children created some pictures of Tudor houses using charcoal and different grades of pencils for a fabulous display in the ICE Zone.

Autumn Term


In Science this week we went around the school to find lots of different materials and their uses. We found out that wood and metal were the most popular materials used around the school.


In English the year 2 children had been busy researching different planets. They became experts about their chosen planets. The children then dressed like scientists to present their research.


During the ICE Zone topic this term the children were given the challenge to design and build their own rockets. The children were able to use a range of junk modelling materials to create some amazing rockets.

The children created their own feast for their carrots to jump through. We wrote about our own carrots and the journey we took them own. The children were so proud of their writing and their carrots.

The year 1 children have been busy creating their very own autumn leaf poem. Each child wrote a line of the poem. The children thought about adjectives and similes to describe the autumn. We went and collected some autumnal leaves to surround our poem.


In Maths the children have been continuing to look at and learn about place value, the children have enjoyed using all sorts of equipment to represent their number cards.


In Science we have looked into recycling and how to separate the rubbish into the correct bins. As a class we have discuss why it is important to recycle and what we as a class could do to recycle more.

Sunstone Class have been continuously busy this term. Each week is kicked off by an action packed Monday where the children have the chance to refine and learn new dance skills in their dance lessons. Then the children are on to learning to improve their basic skills in PE.


During English the children received a letter from the Lonely Beast. He asked which material he needed to use to create a book shelf. The children have been learning the key features of letter writing, in order to write their own letters back to the Beast informing him of the best material.


In Maths these past few weeks Sunstone Class have moved on to addition and subtraction. The Year One children have been focusing on their number bonds to and within 10 and 20. The Year Two children have moved on to adding one digit and two digit numbers. As well as starting to add numbers using a number line.


We are looking into Materials in Science. The children have learnt to identify different materials, their properties, their uses and whether or not they are man made or natural.

In the ICE Zone the children have been learning a wide range skills and knowledge. They have been able to mix primary colours to create secondary colours. They have also been venturing outside to find and discover Autumnal changes, of which they have found many so far.
