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 =
In P.E. we were also looking at balancing! The children explored balancing on 2, 3 and 4 parts of their bodies.
In Science, the children were investigating materials with translucent properties. The children used torches to see if the light could pass through.
The science learning continued outside as we planted our bulbs for spring. We decided on a pattern of circles and we used coloured sand to mark out our designs! We can’t wait to see what happens when the bulbs come up!
