Global learning

Today we have started learning about our class countries - Costa Rica and the USA. Why don't you do some research at home to find out more about your fantastic country?



Fire

The children have written posters all about Thomas Farriner, his bakery, the cakes and the delicious smells using correct tense, adjectives, and conjunctions. We then imagined that the posters got caught in the Great Fire of London! Have a look at some examples of beautiful writing...

Doubling

posted 13 Oct 2017, 08:04 by Katy Godfrey

In maths we have been doubling numbers. We have used base 10 and numicon to do this and also partitioned 2 digit numbers to double them. Play these game to practise at home: http://www.ictgames.com/robindoubles.html 

   


Suffixes

posted 10 Oct 2017, 10:01 by Amy Gill

This week in English we have been learning about suffixes and how they change the meaning of words. How many suffix words can you think of at home?


Number bonds to 20

posted 7 Oct 2017, 05:19 by Katy Godfrey

In maths this week we have been practising number bonds to 20, knowing these number facts 'off by heart' is very important and can be applied to lots of other maths learning. Play this game to practise at home: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

We have been learning about fact families e.g:
2 + 18 = 20
18 + 2 = 20
20 - 18 = 2
20 - 2 = 18

Can you write out the fact families for these bonds to 20?


Or you could try this deeper learning challenge:

What a busy day we've had! We had a great time when Mrs Pepys visited us today. We learnt all about cleanliness, clothing, bread-making, knife-making as well as the plague and the great fire of London.

 
  
 
 











FIRE FIRE!

posted 4 Oct 2017, 08:23 by Katy Godfrey

As part of our learning about The Plague and The Great Fire of London, this afternoon we had our own fire where we burnt the Tudor houses we made last week. We learnt about the fire triangle and why the fire spread so easily in 1666.


Our learning this week

posted 1 Oct 2017, 08:15 by Katy Godfrey

This week in Y2 we have been really getting to grips with place value of 2 and 3 digit numbers, this has included using the more than and less than signs (< >).
Here are some activities you can do at home: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/place-value/place-value-charts 

  

  

  

  



In topic and English lessons we have been learning all about The Great Fire of London. We found out that scones had been made at Pudding Lane bakery the night before the fire so we made some at school, the following day we wrote a recipe for making them. Can you write a recipe at home for something you like to bake/cook?

  

We were so impressed with Arthur this week who made his own Tudor style house at home - do you know what the red cross on the front door means?
