IPC Learning Journey
We have been very INTERNATIONALLY MINDED this week looking at different festivals of light from all over the world! We looked at fire safety on Bonfire night and practised using sparklers with care. We had to be risk takers and were very brave. We each made a wish as we let our floating candles float round the fountain to celebrate the Indian Arti festival (ceremony of light). We sang a traditional Dutch song all about light with Ms Annemiek. We even made our own crowns with candles just like Queen Lucia in Sweden!
Next week MP1 learners will be coming to the end of our Seeing The Light unit. MP1 would like to take this opportunity to invite parents and carers to join us in celebrating all we have learnt over the past learning block. We will be holding a special performance in a the hall on Friday 4th November from 10am where you can expect all our MP1 super stars to show you their singing and dancing skills. After this you will be invited back to your child's classroom where they will continue to share some more of their wonderful learning with you. More details to follow soon.
In MATHS we have been busy sorting objects into groups using a Venn diagram. We discovered some items belong in both groups so we had to put them in the middle. Other items didn't belong in either group! These were the odd ones out.
In LITERACY we finished making our nocturnal animal books. They look really cool! We included a blurb, a contents and even a glossary. Our books are full of fascinating facts. Take a closer look...
This week Year 2 started writing their booklets about nocturnal animals. After doing a lot of research and learning about the features of non-fiction texts, the children did a wonderful job in writing and illustration their books. We have a true bunch of authors in Year 2 now!
In MATHS, we have been learning how to double and halve numbers using 1-100 string beads. We also used strips with an even number of pictures to help practise our understanding. We played board games to further consolidate our learning.
