Y2 Curriculum Celebration Summer Term 2 2023
14th Jul 2023
Year two have really made the most of the summer term. We have continued to grown beans as part of our plants unit in science, and then we used these to create observational drawings and prints in art. We have also loved immersing ourselves in castle life. We were particularly interested in castle defensive features and we used our knowledge to design and build our own castles. To top it all off, we have loved the kinball and climbing workshops that we experienced.

We had enjoyed a fun and busy term of learning. We have been finding out about how the seaside has changed since Victorian times, enjoying the ‘Lighthouse Keeper’s stories’, working with numbers to 100 in maths, learning more about seasons, designing and making pop up cards for our friends and lots more! ‘The seaside comes to Prestbury!’ What a fun and sunny day we had enjoying the sand, water, beach toys and water sprays! The highlight of the event was definitely the lovely donkeys, Bella and Sansom who were so gentle and fun to ride.

Summer Term 1 Year two have been working so hard this term, and we’ve had lots of fun as well! We practised lots of different maths skills in preparation for our assessments, and we have really enjoyed celebrating the build-up to the coronation of King Charles III. In science, we have been growing beans as part of an on-going investigation, and in computing, we have made our own animations on ipads.
Y1 Curriculum Celebration Summer Term 1 2023
12th Jun 2023
We have had a fantastic summer tern in Year 1. We have become history detectives, learning about Grace Darling and investigating why she became famous. In art, we have created some beautiful seascapes pictures with a range of collage techniques. In English we have been exploring the Lighthouse Keeper’s stories and working very hard on punctuation. Maths has been all about repeated addition, arrays, grouping and sharing. We ended the term learning all about the King Charles and the coronation. We created lots of beautiful art work, watched Queen’s Elizabeth’s coronation, shared royal artefacts and then had a lovely school celebration.

Reception Curriculum Celebration Spring 3 2023
28th Feb 2023
This term Reception answered the question What can I do in Prestbury? Through enquiry-based sessions, the children discovered you could go to the park, visit the village shop, get petrol from the garage or even visit the library. Each class voted for where they would most like to visit. Red Class visited Prestbury Park and Blue Class visited Prestbury Library. Once back at school, the children represented their journeys by creating individual maps. We also celebrated Lunar New Year and were lucky enough to taste some delicious Chinese food from Caterlink. We created our own lion and dragon dances and made beautiful lanterns. We discovered lots of information such as the national animal, flower, bird, mythical creature, the weather, famous sports and much more – please do ask us to share our knowledge with you. Within our topic ‘Terrific Tales’ we have enjoyed listening to a variety of traditional tales as well as learning two stories off by heart; The Little Red Hen and The Gingerbread Man. Unfortunately, our Gingerbread Man escaped so we spent the last week of term creating wanted posters and searching the school for clues. This term also enabled us to become cyclists! We have had weekly Balanceability sessions with Coach Sam and every child has shown what a fantastic Prestbury Learner they are as they consistently demonstrate resilience. We are looking forward to our final 4 sessions next term. We are continuing to develop our mathematics skills and are starting to mentally recall key number skills such as one more and one less and number bonds to 5. What a wonderful start to 2023!
Y1 Curriculum Celebration Spring Term 3 2023
17th Feb 2023
What a fun packed term Year 1 have had! We have been looking at what resilience is, listening to stories of people who have shown resilience and discussed how we can develop this skill. We are very proud of everyone for working on this. In literacy we have been focusing on the stories ‘Handa’s Surprise’, ‘Handa’s Hen’ and ‘One Day on our Blue Planet- in the Savannah’. We have been describing characters and the setting using adjectives. We have also become brilliant authors and have written a few stories to share with others. In maths we have been exploring numbers from 10 to 20 and understanding place value. We have been learning to add and subtract using a ten frame and number line. In Geography we have been learning about maps and our local area (before learning about Africa). We really enjoyed walking around our local area. We identified human and physical features, and we made our teachers proud by demonstrating excellent behaviour and fantastic observational skills! In science we learned all about Winter by going for a frosty walk on the field and finding out about what some animals do in Wintertime. We have also been learning about how to group and categorise animals by their common features- mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians. We have loved our Design and technology topic – designing and making fruit kebabs for our friends. Our teachers were impressed with our cutting skills-using the claw and bridge cut correctly! RE lessons have got us thinking Judaism and we have been learning about special objects Jewish people have in their homes. Tuesday afternoon with Coach Sam has been fabulous and an opportunity to develop team work and ball skills. Computing has made us think about how to stay safe online and what to do if you are worried about anything. Our Jigsaw lessons have been discussing our goals and dreams and how to overcome difficulties.

Year 2 Curriculum Celebration Autumn Term 1 2022
21st Oct 2022
We have had a fantastic first term in year two! We have explored place value and shape in Maths. Our writing this term has been inspired by ‘Tadpole’s Promise’ by Tony Ross, and we enjoyed using drama to explore the character’s feelings. We recently had a fun visit from the Life Bus as part of our PSHE. In Science, we have been exploring animals including humans, finding out how babies grow into adults as well as how exercise, a balanced diet and good hygiene keep us healthy. We even had a visit from a VIP; an 11-week-old baby! Our art unit this term has been ‘Colour Crazy’, where we have learned to mix and use watercolour paints and have produced our own artworks inspired by Wassily Kandinsky, Bridget Riley, Georgia O’Keefe and Piet Mondrian.
