Another great week of learning!
We also watched some videos about how people use water in Cambodia and why clean water is important to us. We will definitely be learning more about that when we start our next subject Science!
In Year 1 we practised lots more rhyme. The children got better and better at coming up with rhyming words, independently or with a partner. They also had a go at writing rhyming words. At the end of the week, they have written a poem with these words. They had so many great ideas!
In maths the children started learning measuring. They already know many words to do with measuring: heavy & light, long & short, full & empty. We used scales, measuring tape, rulers and measuring jugs. This was a lot of fun! Next week we're going to learn some more terms to do with measuring and we will learn to measure accurately.
In Year 2 in maths we have continued learning about fractions. We applied our knowledge of fractions to help us find half of irregular shapes. Next we have learned to find 1/2 and 1/4 of a number. We used cubes and Numicon to help us to find the answers to the more challenging numbers. We have also been learning to double numbers. We have been practising to recall halving and doubling number facts through practical games and activities.
This week in Literacy we started off our week by rehearsing and performing our Kenya rain poems. We then composed questions about what we would like to find out about Kenya. We looked at features of information texts and learned how to skim and scan texts to find the answers to our questions. We are looking forward to creating a fact file about Kenya to show off our new knowledge.

The children will need some help to log on and find the designated Year 1 or Year 2 folder.
