Another great week for Year 2. We have had lots of fun.
In Maths we have been learning to divide by sharing, we used lots of practical resources to do this. In English we looked at the features of a newspaper article, planned and then begun to write our own newspaper article on the Great Fire of London. Next week we are going to finish them. We can't wait for you to see our work!
In Science this week we had a lot of fun. We were testing different materials to see which was the most absorbent. We used new science equipment: beakers, funnels and cylinders. We discussed what makes a fair test and found a way to make our own experiment fair. All the children wrote a prediction. We then discussed whether our prediction was correct. The children worked really hard to write up their experiment. I am sure you can see on the photos below how much fun we had!
Homework has been set on seesaw.
Have a lovely weekend!
This week in English we have been writing a recount of what happened during the 4 days of the Great Fire of London. The children started with a story board and then moved onto writing the facts. We have all really been enjoying learning about the Great Fire of London. In Maths this week we have been learning about the multiplication symbol. We have been using repeated addition to help us write a multiplication sentence.
This week in History we learnt about the jobs from 1666 and discussed whether we still did them today. We also started our Ebook on the Great Fire of London. In Science we carried out and experiment using different materials. We found out if we could squash, twist and stretch them.
We all enjoyed the Panto!
Another great week for us!
This week the children have settled in fantastically. We have completed lots of practical activities.
In Maths this week we have been learning about equal groups. Towards the end of the week we were able to use repeated addition to add equal groups. This is going to help us when we start using the multiplication symbol next week. In English we have started a non-fiction unit. We have looked at the features of a non-fiction text as well as completing research on The Great Fire of London. This is also our topic in History this half term. The children enjoyed finding out about what happened and are able to recall many facts. In Science this half term we will be looking at materials. This week we looked at Materials and what they are used for. In RE this week we looked at Sikhism and in Art we got paint out and learnt about different type of brush strokes.
Reminder- Spellings are on Seesaw for this half term next weeks (14.1.22) will be week 2.
