Minibeasts and Multiplication!
Friday 29th June | 3 comments
This week in Year 2 we have been learning more about mini beasts through our Art and English work. We have developed our drawing skills through looking closely at photographs of butterflies and then working with a partner to listen to feedback to improve. We enjoyed working outside in the shade!
In English we have written some lovely mini beast poems. Here are two of our favourites:
The Woodlouse by Vaughn
Cautiously creeping out of my home,
Like an armoured ant,
Slowly creeping away from predators,
Creeping on my six wire-like legs,
Rolling into a ball away from danger,
Look, leap, dash,
Back in my home.
The Spider by Matilda
Long, pipe-cleaner legs scuttling silently across its silver threaded web,
Working tirelessly on a see-through trampoline,
Greedily gobbling juicy black flies,
Black marble eyes glistening in the sun.
In Maths this week, we have been using number lines to answer multiplication and division questions. We are amazed at how well the children know their times table facts now!
Next week we are looking forward to our Year 2 skipping event on Thursday, plus we are starting a very special topic which begins with a visit to the Farfield bees.
