(and you can’t wish for more wishes!)
All our MP1 learners showed such resilience and determination. It was fantastic to see their tremendous team spirit as they cheered for their team mates. Well done MP1! If you haven't seen them yet, here are a few of our favourite photos from sports day.
However, it seems the camera must have malfunctioned during MP1's tug of war, so unfortunately there is no record to prove who won against the teachers and parents. We will just have to wait till next year to find out who really is stronger.
In LITERACY this week we learnt all about alliteration. We know that alliteration with in some nouns or adjective+noun can make sentences more interesting, for example in a poem.
One of our learners brought in a bouncy ball in this week. So then we started thinking about other describing words starting with the b; like big, blue, beautiful. Can you think of any more?
1S did an amazing job in their assembly this week. They have learned a lot about sharing their learning; how to speak in a microphone or how to present their learning. Great effort!
In MATHS this week we have been learning about the sequence of numbers. We used the 100 square to help us. This is a really useful tool. We use our knowledge of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to work out missing numbers.
In LITERACY we practised retelling all the exciting things that happened on sports day. We tried hard to sequence the events correctly using time connectives (First, Next, Then, After, Finally) and include detail, such as our feelings or the personal goals we showed. We also had to remember to use the past tense. There are lots of rules for writing in the past tense. Can you remember what they are?
In MATHS this week we have been learning about division. We have used sharing to help us understand what division means. We are great at sharing in Year 2! We have also started to use Numicon to help us find the answers to challenging division problems.
