We have been thinking all about our SOCIETY this week. We looked at how people with sight or hearing impairments adapt to their surroundings. We tired writing our names using braille and had to be really resilient! We also tried using sign language. Take a look at how we got on below:
In LITERACY we have learning about instructions. We looked at different kinds of instructions e.g. games, recipes, directions etc. Then we sequenced a set of instructions, but not just any instructions ....a PANCAKE recipe! Next, we had to follow the recipe. We followed the instructions very carefully and made delicious pancakes to eat. They were really yummy! Finally we wrote our own set of instructions to show our understanding. Ms Lily is going to try out our recipes to make her own pancakes ...we hope she's very hungry.
In MATHS we have been measuring magicians! First, we went on a measuring hunt around school. We found things more than one metre long, less than one metre and exactly one metre. We also looked at how we measure mass. We used scales to measure out our pancake ingredients. We also used balancing scales to find objects which are heavier or lighter.
In LITERACY we learnt about the story of the Little Red Hen. As Mr. Phill the storyteller did so much storytelling with Year 2 last week, we wanted to learn more about stories and storytelling this week.
We listened to the story of the Little Red Hen and we acted out the story in our teams. We also had a try at retelling the story. We talked about the setting of the story and what the characters are saying in the story. We had to review learning about speech marks. Let’s see how Year 2 will write up our stories of the Little Red Hen next week!
In MATHS this week we've continued with our 2, 5, 10 times table and addition of 2 digit numbers.
We then continued to explore concrete ways of learning their times-table and addition of double digits.
