This week has been all about reflecting upon previous events.
In literacy, we wrote a recount of the many fantastic things we did on World Book Day.
In maths, we used all of the operations we now know to create calculations to reach a target number.
In Design and Technology, we evaluated the headdresses that we have created for the carnival and made suggestions for possible improvements.
In RE, we reflected upon all the times we have made good choices and how this has helped others.
At home, we are encouraged to practise the times tables that we have learnt and to keep reading and writing the common exception words that are listed in the front of our Spelling Books.
It's been fun looking back but now it's time to look forward to next week!
Wow! What a busy week we have had here in Class 2!
We met a dance teacher on Monday, called Miss Kim, and she taught us a fantastic dance routine. We will have a few more sessions with Miss Kim and we are hoping that she will teach us a few Samba moves for our Rio style carnival.
On Wednesday, a theatre group came to school and performed a lovely version of a classic book called 'The Secret Garden'. We then used some photos as prompts to write a review of the performance.
It was World Book Day on Thursday and we loved dressing as our favourite characters and sharing some of our favourite books with our friends. We also went to Goldthorpe Library and shared some stories there and had a go at some craft activities too.
People from home joined us in school on Friday for our Parent Topic Session. We used feathers, sequins and ribbon to create the most amazing headdresses to wear for our Rio style carnival.
Despite having such a busy week, we still managed to fit in some maths work and this week we were making target numbers by creating calculations and using as many of the four operations as we could.
It really has been a very busy week!
We are all very excited about our new topic 'Rio de Vida' because this half term we will be having lots of fun getting ready for our Rio style carnival.
This week we learnt that the Earth has seven continents and five oceans. We found South America on a map and we started to learn all about one of it's countries - Brazil.
In maths, we have been tackling some division word problems and the children even had a go at creating their own word problems for their friends to solve. We have also been using an App called 'Squeebles' and an online game called 'Tables Tennis', to practise our multiplication and division skills.
On Friday we celebrated 'British Values Day' and had great fun dressed in our Red, White and Blue clothes. We listened to some traditional British songs and we enjoyed singing 'Yellow Submarine' by the very British band 'The Beetles'. As it was also St David's Day, we learned all about St David, who is the Patron Saint of a British country called Wales. We made daffodils and wrote on each of the petals ways that we could be good British Citizens.
