What a special week we've had in MP1, learning all about the Water Festival. We had a go at making our own boats before testing them out on the water to see whose boat floats the best! We sampled some delicious treats ready to the moon salutation. To top it off we even had our very own boat race which was incredibly exciting!
In LITERACY this week we have been busy exploring rhyme and alliteration. We had lots of fun thinking of our own silly sentences using alliteration. We even created new names for ourselves using alliteration e.g. Jolly Jinna, Jumping Jacob etc.
In MATHS we have started to learn all about 3D shapes. We looked carefully at each shape to see what 2D shapes we could find. To help us we used our 3D shapes and printed 2D shape pictures. We went on a shape hunt and even made our own 3D shapes using nets. Wow, shape-tastic!
This week in LITERACY Year 2 have been learning about similes as another poetic device for our calligrams.
We looked at other poetic devices, such as rhyme, alliteration and onomatopoeia.
With all this in our toolkit, we did our best to write shape poems.
In MATHS this week we have been learning about common 2D shapes. We identified the common polygons from pictures in different positions and orientations; drew, sorted and described 2D shapes, referring to their properties including symmetry and right angles.
