The Moon Landing, more 1960s and statistics
Friday 1st February | 7 comments
The children have enjoyed further learning about the 1960s this week and have produced an informative non-chronological report. They wrote super fact sentences, remembering to use conjunctions to add more detail, correct punctuation and used right choice topic words.
They found learning about the moon landing fascinating and were able to use a range of sources of evidence to support their learning.
We have also learned about the artist, Andy Warhol. Children enjoyed discussing his most famous pieces and we talked about how artists today are inspired by his work. We decided to create our own Warhol inspired artwork using our own self portraits and then using photographs of today’s icons and popular culture. We will continue to work on these next week.
In maths this week, we have introduced statistics; the children have learned how to create and interpret tally charts, pictograms and block graphs. We would like children to show us what they have learned in this week’s learning log.
Year 2 Learning Log Homework – 01.02.19
We would like you to collect some data at home and then present it as a tally chart, pictogram or block graph. You could also complete some of Section 5 in your maths reasoning book and look at this for further ideas.
To be handed in on Wednesday 13th February 2019
We look forward to seeing your work!
In Special Mention Assembly this week, Mrs Kenny presented some children with certificates and prizes for their hard work in maths and reading. Well done to these children and thank you to Mrs Kenny for her hard work too!
Next week on Friday we are looking forward to taking part in a skipping workshop run by ‘skipping school’. This is an exciting workshop which will kick start our skipping skills which we will continue to work on throughout the school year. Some children will be selected to take part in a skipping competition later in the year! Please make sure children come to school in appropriate PE kit for skipping. Please note: This is also ‘Wear Red’ day.
