It has been all about balancing and rebalancing this week in Year 2. In maths, the children have been looking at rebalancing number sentences. The children identified the number in their calculation that was near a friendly number (multiple of ten) and used a beadstring to rebalance their calculation.
How would you rebalance the following calculations?
41 + 13 =
24 + 39 =
18 + 28 =
Year 2 completed their big write for Weslandia. The children composed a letter explaining how they created their own civilization. Everyone put their editing hats on and made fantastic revisions to their first drafts. Year 2 always take great care with their handwriting and they should be very proud of the presentation of their work.
We continued work on our History topic: Remembrance – Everyone remembered. Year 2 researched Private H.J. Childs of the Royal Army Service Corps. We found out that he was a member of the 69th field bakery and he died on the 12th April 1917. We made a card for Private Childs, who is buried in St. Mary’s cemetery Potters Bar and the School House Captains brought all the cards to the cemetery and said prayers over the graves.
