This week is 'My Money' week. In Maths we have been developing our skills when working money; using our number bonds, adding and subtracting amounts and finding change.
On Wednesday we will be selling cakes so we have been looking at and learning our recipe. Watch the videos below to find out more!
I hope you all have a fantastic Easter holiday. The children have worked really hard this half term and should be feeling very proud of all that they have achieved. Chimps class have the Christian Values homework that was sent home to the whole school via parent mail and Maths homework linked to the work we have been doing on money. This is in their homework folders. In addition to this, children have brought home their spelling journals. Inside the front covers there are a list of words that are a focus in year 2. The highlighted words are words that your child needs to practise and learn. It would be great if the children could have a go at some of these over the holidays. They can practise them in the back of their spelling journal.
If you would like your child to spend extra time practising their reading, writing and maths skills then please check out the websites listed below.
We have had a really busy week back after half term and have been learning about all things bonfire related! We have been writing some super spine poems in English using powerful vocabulary such as exciting adjectives, verbs, similes and alliteration. We have also learnt about The Gunpowder Plot in our topic lesson. We learnt about how unhappy the Catholic Christians were with King James I and how a group of 13 men plotted together to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
Watch the brilliant video below which shows one of the groups in our class re-enacting the Gunpowder plot.
We have had a busy week in Chimp class being shape explorers. We have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We were very excited when we received a letter from Mr R.E.C Tangle at Shape Headquarters telling us about an explosion that had occurred in their factory causing all their shapes to become mixed up. They had heard what shape experts we are in year 2 and they needed us to help sort the shapes again.
We had a great time making bread this afternoon. Mrs Drew from our school kitchen did a fantastic demonstration and then we got stuck in with kneading and shaping the dough. It was a great start to our English unit on instructions and tested our skills of following the steps. It also made us think about what the baker Thomas Farrinor in 1666 would have had to do each day.
