We wore non-uniform to raise money for Children in Need.
The children carried out a science experiment as part of Science Day. They were finding out which biscuit is the best to dunk. They dunked a range of biscuits and timed how long it took the biscuits to go soggy.
During English we have been focusing on the Traction Man story. We have enjoyed exploring the characters in the book. We did some hot seating to understand how the boy in the story felt when he received a Traction Man toy!
In Year 2 children have been learning about Rosa Parks and her influence on Black History. We sequenced the story on how Rosa Parks’ experience on the bus led to changes in segregation laws.
Children were able to use expressions and actions appropriately when performing the poems. They projected their voices in different ways to add an effect to their performances. They worked collaboratively and all set out different ways to perform their poems.
The children also provided each group with feedback with one thing they could improve on and two things that worked best.
Children revisited adding two numbers bridging ten, they used tens frame to support their understanding of making ten. They then used concrete, pictorial and abstract ways to show subtraction. Children began by subtracting through ten, by subtracting down to ten then subtracting the rest of the number for example:
We worked in groups to find rhyming words for words taken from the poem ‘Grasshopper One’ by Grace Nichols. Once we came up with rhyming words we all changed a line of a verse including a rhyming word of our choice. The class then came together and read the poem with the new lines and performed it.
The year 2 children have enjoyed walking to school everyday as part of the walk to school week.
The children used a part-part whole model to partition numbers.
The children have been learning about tens and ones. They used concrete materials to put their numbers in place value charts.
The children were identifying the features of a computer.
The children in year 2 enjoyed carrying out a science experiment to see which is the best suitable material for a toy car to travel the furthest. The children wrote their predictions and were excited to discover the results of the experiment. We tested materials such as wood, plastic, cardboard and metal. Which material do you think was the most suitable?
