We’ve been having quite a busy few weeks in class 2 with our Nativity rehearsals. The children are doing so well and can’t wait to film it next Thursday.
We have also been busy working on our multiplication and division, as well as completing our hot task in writing. Next week is assessment week, so pupils will be taking some past SATS papers in reading, SPAG and maths.
In reading, class 2 were very eager to talk about the pictures of their books that they posted to google classroom last week. Some pupils even came up to the top of the class and told everyone about it:
What a great half term class 2, you have all worked so hard!
Today. we earned our final gem and got our well deserved treat afternoon.
We also made some airplanes to end our topic on flight.
This week we also completed our hot task and our unit of subtraction and addition.
Have a lovely half term class 2!
This week we have been working on our subtraction and addition, as well as our maths fluency activities in the morning. In writing we have worked on our innovation and have been using commas in lists, adjectives and our suffixes.
In our topic, we learned all about Amelia Earhart and in science we carried our our ‘Rocket Mouse’ experiment. We have also been learning about road safety and how it is important to stop, look, think and listen.
This week in our topic, we did a role play session in pairs where one person pretended to be Orville or Wilbur Wright and the other was a reporter. The pupils were very good at remembering some key information and I was very impressed with their acting skills!
In our maths session, we worked on addition with renaming. We used concrete materials to help us understand this concept and worked on our column addition.
In our writing, we worked on using our commas in a list along with our suffix ‘ed’. We also started our new T4W story ‘Whatever Next’.
In science next week, we will be doing an experiment to test out forces. I need pupils to bring in a plastic milk bottle on Friday 9th October so I can quarantine them over the weekend ready for the following week.
We will also be starting work on our D & T project where we will be making planes. Pupils need to bring in a used cardboard kitchen roll (no loo roll holders please) and a used cereal box. We will be using these materials to make our planes. Please bring these in on Monday 12th as I will quarantine them until we need to use them later in the week.
We’ve had another busy week in class 2 this week. We have been working hard on our phonics and our words of the day (common exception words), some of the pupils have also been trying to use these in their work which has been lovely to see. We have also completed our hot task and the pupils tried really hard to include their capital letters, full stops and adjectives. They came up which some really great ideas for their new stories.
In maths we have moved on to addition. We have been learning different methods, such as column addition and partitioning. The homework set for Thursday will be based on this.
In our topic, we have been learning about the Wright Brothers and watched some footage of their first successful flight from 1903. We also created some artwork for the Harvest festival which took place virtually today.
