A Super week in Year 2!
Friday 12th March | No comments yet
How lovely to be writing a blog about what the children have been learning in school! It has been a great week; the children have settled back in to the routines of school and have shown an amazing attitude towards their learning. We are so proud of them all.
We started the week by looking at our learning hive and talking about our new school rules. We have been focusing on these all week for our dojos and new sticker rewards.
This week in English we have been finding out about African animals. We have been focusing on the skill of writing linking sentences so that children’s writing becomes more coherent.
In maths, we have continued our learning on 3D shapes. Children should now be confident in naming 3D shapes and talking about their properties using the terms faces, edges and vertices. Here we are sorting shapes:
This week we went on an adventure to Africa! Here we are on the plane and finding fun facts about this amazing continent. We found out how long it would take to get to different places in Africa and used our maps to plot a journey to Kenya. We then identified the countries we would cross on a flight to Kenya. Next week we will start to learn more about Kenya.
Other news and activities
- Children have enjoyed lots of PE this week. Indoor PE this half term is dance and outdoor PE is ball skills. We are also having an extra skipping session on Fridays. Unfortunately, it was raining on Wednesday so we had a relaxing yoga session in the hall instead!
- Children learned all about birds in science this week.
- There is a surprise in children’s bookbags for a special lady on Sunday!
Have a great weekend!
