We have settled in to our busy timetable in Year 2 and have enjoyed exploring the creative curriculum. Take a look at what we have been up to...
The tiger who came to tea sent us a letter. He had a huge problem! He'd planned a dinner party for all of his friends and he couldn't decide how they should sit at each of his 2 tables. So we used cubes and tables work systematically to find all of the different ways he could sit his guests!
We have been learning all about Africa in our class. We have been asking lots of questions and made a fact file to find the answers using iPads to help us with our research! Did you know 832 million people live there! 😮
we are having lots of fun getting dressed up as characters from well known stories! We are spending our day making our own marvellous medicines and design our own gruesome ingredients!
We have enjoyed making jam and cheese sandwiches in class today! We gave Mr Fraser instructions to make his own sandwich but he kept getting it wrong, he put the whole tub of butter on his bread! We had to be really specific and add detail using adjectives and adverbs. He got there in the end!
Sian's fantastic descriptive instructions!
This week we are exploring money using practical activities. We used coins upto £1 to make different amounts in our piggy banks. Why not test our fantastic knowledge while at the shops to see how much we have learnt!
We have been exploring 3D shapes. We have looked at their properties using mathematical language like edges, faces and vertices and even made our very own skeleton shapes. Take a look at our fantastic creations!
PhonicsIn our phonics groups we have been learning lots of new sounds to support our reading and writing. Why not try some of the fantastic games that we use in school by clicking on the word 'Phonics'.
