Year 2 Science
Today, our Year 2 Science group helped sort out Miss Sharma's food shopping into the correct groups, inside the huge triangle. Year 2 definitely know what they should eat more of, less of and foods they should eat as a treat.
Our Year 2 children really enjoyed completing their five exercises while counting how many times they could complete each one in a minute. They also found it interesting to note down what happened to their body after each exercise. Some of us worked in mixed ability groups and some of us worked with an adult.
Today, we observed closely at plants and trees in our local environment and recorded what we could see.
Today, we built objects we could use everyday using recycled materials that we collected throughout the week.
Today, Year 2s explored the school's wildlife area. They had lots of fun hunting for minibeasts using their science equipment and using their mathematical skills to record their findings.
Year 2 Maths
Today, Year 2 children had fun working in small groups while they measured, compared and ordered different lengths. They recorded their findings using the following signs: >, < and =.
Year 2 children had fun comparing lengths using single multiples.
Year 2 children loved counting in steps of two. They arranged lots of numbers in the correct order and to challenge themselves, partner A closed their eyes while partner B removed a card so Partner A could work out the missing number.
The children worked together to complete each multiplication fact before arranging these in order to make a column of multiplication facts for the 2 times table. Some children used small counting objects for support.
Year 3 Maths
Year 3 children had fun adding multiples of 100 on an empty number line.
Year 3 children had fun playing a subtraction game against each other. They had a 100 number square per pair, some counters and a dice. The aim of the game was to mentally subtract ones starting at 100, the winner was the first person to get to zero! Lots of children became very competitive whilst playing this fun game.
