I'm very pleased with how well the class have responded to learning about multiplication and using arrays to solve multiplication problems.
Have a look at these arrays. What multiplication calculations do they show?
In literacy we have carried on with our work based on the Queen's Hat.
In pairs we worked together to create a storymap. We could then use our storymap to retell the original story. Then we decided to innovate the original story and create a new story based in Manchester. We worked in groups to plan our new story. We discussed what the Queen could lose and where it would go. We stuck some new pictures on our storymap and practised telling our new story. Later on we added some speech and time adverbials to make it more interesting for the reader.
Have a look at our storymaps.
Thank you to all the parents that came to our Stay and Read this week.
The children really enjoyed learning lots of different poems for Chinese New Year.
In ICT we are learning all about emails. We have discussed all the different ways that people communicate, such as telephones, letters, sign language, body language, social media and email.
As part of our email unit we have learnt:
The importance of keeping your usernames and passwords private.
How to reply to an email.
How to compose an email.
How to search for contacts in your address book.
Email safety - including not replying to emails from people that we do not know.
We have been reading a new story called 'The Queen's Hat'.
We had great fun acting out scenes from the book!
In keeping with a royal theme we have been learning about Queen Elizabeth ll. During Stay and Read the children read some information about the Queen and then tried to make their own fact file of her life.
The word knickers is spelt with a 'k'. The 'k' at the start of the word is silent.
How many more words can you find with your adult over the weekend that have a silent 'k'. 10 chance cards for anyone that bring a list to Ms Stapleton on Monday.
Our new book in literacy is all about knickers!
There is a crisis in the Palace when Dilys the maid discovers that the Queen's knickers are missing.
Year 2 were very excited to design a new pair of knickers for the Queen as part of our 'Stay and Read' sessions with our parents.
Happy New Year to everyone!! We hope you all had a fun and restful festive season.
Thankyou to everyone who could spare the time to come and take part in class and experience the amazing Reindeer Pokey! Here's a few reminders of the day!
As part of our geography work we have moved away from looking at our local area and are now focusing on our country and the wider world. We have discussed different countries that we have visited and places that our family are from.
Can you name the 4 countries that form the United Kingdom and their capital cities?
Can you remember the names of the 7 Continents of the World?
In our lessons we have been using Google Earth. We found our school and then zoomed out so that we could see the sounding area. We kept on zooming out so that we could find lots of other cities too.
Why don't you try and find your own house by typing in your postcode. Have a look at another city and try and find some famous landmarks.
