The chocolatey fun continued in class 2 this week. We finished our research project and wrote our final reports for Mr Wonka. We've always known how yummy chocolate is but now we know all about where it comes from, how it is made and lots of other fascinating facts!
In maths, we have been learning how spell number names and how to measure capacity. We have been reading scales and measuring liquids in millilitres (ml) and litres (l). We had great fun creating and making our own potions (using some very odd ingredients) and we ended the week with a fun investigation to help Mrs Sanderson work out which of her mugs would hold the most hot chocolate for her bedtime drink. Who knew measuring capacity could be so much fun and so useful?
We also started to learn a new song this week called 'I Wanna Play in a Band' and we loved the sounds made by the instruments in this rock song. We are looking forward to performing this song for you at our Parent Assembly.
In ICT we learnt how to send an email because we wanted to send the photos of our magic potions to Miss Beedham, so that she could post them on our Facebook page. We hope you enjoyed looking at them!
Happy New Year!
It's been a very busy start to 2019 here in Class 2. A letter was waiting for us on Monday morning and it was from the very Famous Mr Wonka from the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. He's written to the very clever children of Class 2 to ask for their help because he fell out of his great glass elevator, bumped his head and now he can't remember a single thing about chocolate! The children decided that the best thing to do was write a report all about chocolate and send it to Mr Wonka.
In maths, we have been using a number square to find 10 more/less than a given number and then we tackled some subtraction problem solving. We used various methods to help us with our calculations and we really enjoyed learning how to use dienes. (Ask your child to show you what they are!)
Our current topic is called 'Muck, mess and mixtures' and this is linked to the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl. We will be reading the book together in stages and using the text as an inspiration for exciting and engaging learning opportunities.
