Autumn 2

Hedgehog house instructions

 

All of year 2 were set a task today. We gave them a set of instructions to make a hedgehog house. We used the time connectives to help us know what order to do things in. We had a lot of fun.. even if it was very cold! Watch this space to see if we have any visitors smiley

Multiplication

 

We have been using different models and images to help us prove multiplication number statements. We even worked out that multiplication is commutative which means the numbers can be swapped around and still get the same answer! Are you impressed???!

Monday 4th December

 

Today we started our new English unit- instructions. We started off by giving verbal instructions to each other. We quickly realised that we had to be very specific in the instructions that we gave to ensure our partner got it correct.

We also went outside for the Golden Mile. Please can you ensure your child has trainers in school during the week so they can quickly get changed to go outside for Golden Mile. Thank you!

We were challenged to create a product that we could sell at the Christmas fair in order to make a profit for maths resources.

Owl Babies

 

We have been working towards creating our own story based on Owl Babies. So far, we have completed comprehension questions, expressed our opinions and learnt some new vocabulary to describe how the characters are feeling.

 

Today we looked at certain points of the story and we worked in a group to freeze frame it. See if you can guess what parts of the story these pictures are from..

 

Secret Buddy Week

 

This week is Anti Bullying week and we have all been given a secret buddy to share kindness with. We got a cool sticker when we completed an act of kindness. Some things the children did to be kind were: helping someone to first aid, sharing a joke, playing with the or giving them a compliment.

Well done!

Science experiment 2.11.17

 

We got a letter from the Three Little Pigs today that asked us to investigate which material would be the best for windy weather! We used straw, play dough, lego, ice and art straws. First we made predictions. Some of us thought the lego would be the best as it is strong. Some thought the play dough would be the best because it wouldn't blow away. After that we got very messy and made our houses! Let's just say we needed a brush and shovel very quickly smiley We tested them ensuring it was a fair test. We discovered that lego was the best material. The least suitable was ice as it just melted away! We had so much fun smiley

Topic

 

We are close to making our own superhero pop up books. Before we do this, we looked at a range of different pop up books. We loved the different kinds of books and thought they brought the books to life. After this, we thought about our own pop up books. We planned what our background would be and how our superhero would save the day.
