Spring 1, Week 3

This week we revisited ordering and comparing numbers, using number lines and  > < and  symbols. We discussed why certain numbers could or could not to placed in certain places, using mathematical language. We also used equipment to prove our answers.

In English, we have continued creating where, when, how, what and why questions to research about sharks. Next week we will be editing our writing and starting to write our own non fiction books.

In RE, we thought about where we see God and how people show that they have God’s presence. On Wednesday we are going on our trip to the Oshwal centre as part of other faith week. Please see the whole school home learning task.

Have a lovely weekend

During Maths we have been exploring the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction as well as finding different amounts of money.

Our Design and Technology project has been a lot of fun this week. We children have learnt to classify, peel, chop and prepare a wide variety of different fruits and vegetables. We also took part in a sensory lesson, where we described each fruit and vegetables texture, smell, taste and appearance. Later on in the week, we prepared fruit kebabs for ourselves and a Year 1 child to enjoy as a healthy snack. Next week we will evaluate our fruit kebabs.

Merry Christmas

We have had a great last week in Year 2, filled with joy! The children have been busy making Christmas cards and calendars. They also enjoyed Christmas lunch and performing their Nativity play for the parents.

Thank you for the generous gifts for the adults in class.

Have a restful and happy Christmas

Autumn 2 Week 6

This week we enjoyed watching the reception children’s play and also performing our Nativity play for the rest of the school, we can’t wait to perform to you all next week.

In Maths, we have used doubles and near doubles to add  two numbers.

6 + 6 = 12

6 + 7 is 1 more than 12.

6 + 5 is 1 less than 12.

In Religion, the children have written wonderful recounts of the Nativity Story. Next week we will be writing them in neat for display.

Today, there was lots of excitement in assembly when we saw Father Christmas on the big screen in the staff room! Later we met him and he gave us each a box of chocolates. We had a great time at our class Christmas party; dancing, singing and eating party food.

Have a lovely weekend

Autumn 2, Week 4

 

We have been very busy in R.E.  this week, preparing  for Advent. Our prayer table has changed to purple and we have made Advent wreath pictures, Advent promises and a class Advent calendar, where behind each window is a prayer written by the children. We have also been practising our reading, acting and songs for the Nativity play.

I have been impressed with the children’s use of conjunctions in their writing this week.

In Maths, we have been rebalancing calculations to make them easier, for example; 9 + 7 = 10 + 6 and 11 + 7 = 10 + 8.

The children have also been developing their mathematical explanations and strategies.

In PE, we have learnt the different karate blocks, while in tag rugby we have begun passing and small sided tag games.

Autumn 2, week 1

Welcome back! It has lovely to see the children return from the half term refreshed and ready for learning. Today the children were very excited to lead their first assembly, all about Remembrance Sunday. They produced some beautiful artwork to share with the other classes and read very well in the assembly. It was lovely to see so many of you there.

We began the week by having a reflective class worship where we prayed for people in heaven, shared our half term news and thanked God for keeping us safe.

As part of our RE learning about preparing for Advent, we were visited by Mrs Lala, who explained how she is preparing for the birth of her baby. Thank you so much for helping us with our learning.
