A big well done to all of the children in Years 1 & 2 for their fantastic performance this afternoon. If you are coming to watch tomorrow then you are in for a treat!
Children in Year 2 have been finding out all about money over the last two weeks. They have made different combinations of coins that total £1 and have added money to make different totals. Some children have even started to calculate how much change they would receive from a given amount. We are all so impressed!
Children in Year 2 worked in small groups to share their pirate knowledge. They noted down their ideas on pirate appearance, clothing, pets, boats and pirate sayings. They then generated three questions to explore further.
The children have been using a range of media within their artwork this term to explore colour, pattern and texture. This week they created their own bonfire pictures with Mrs Hardy. The children were reminded about the clip ‘Austin’s Butterfly’ and they redrafted until they were completely happy.
As part of our History Fortnight the children in Year 2 are leaning about famous explorers. Today they learnt the names of some very important explorers. These included Christopher Columbus, Sir Walter Raleigh and Captain Cook. They even learnt about modern day explorers including Dame Ellen MacArthur. The children created their own timeline and sequenced these explorers chronologically.
There were some puzzled faces as the children tried to solve our class problem. A square represents 10, a triangle represents 20 and a circle represents 30. Can you place the shapes so that each row and column on our grid makes 60?
We are so proud of Spencer who can now order numbers to 20. What a superstar!
