English

Our English work this week has been focused around reading. We have read lots of different books and answered questions about what we have read. We have discussed and shared some of our thoughts about what could happen next and why characters have acted in certain ways with our teachers.

Maths

This week the children have been completing a range of activities on all that they have learned so far this term. This involved using their knowledge of place value to solve problems, all four operations and seeing what we could recall about fractions and shapes.

Project Work

This week marked the end of our project. We built Dioramas for the different environments that we have been studying and held a learning showcase. We showed off all that we had learned and tested our parents with some quizzes and activities. There was a lot of adults who left our class having learnt something new!

Mandarin

This week the students consolidated their learning about shapes by referring to things around them such as 'the sun is round'; 'the book is a rectangle'; 'the mountain looks like a triangle'. They also describe them using the correct vocabulary and sentence structures that they had learnt through a famous story. The students further consolidated their learning about shapes by writing characters and sentences. 

Computing

We continued with completing the levels on Kodable and learning about 'if statements' using coloured squares.

Physical Education

This week pupils in groups of 4/5 have designed & practiced their own tag games before presenting their versions to the class & being videoed as well. Robbers, pirates & sharks, treasure & a crocodile snap game were common themes but there were so many great ideas from all the Year 2 children.

Breast stroke or `Frog Stroke` is now being introduced into swimming lessons. Using pizza or cake cutting to develop the arm action with the crocodile SNAP helping the leg technique.

Music

This week in Year 2 music, students explored the use of dance rhythms in Bach's third cello suite. Students learned to clap and sing a bourrée, and experimented with their own completions of Bach's main rhythmic gesture.

Homework

For the homework this week the children will be practising their number bonds to 10, 20 or 100. They will play ‘Hit the Button’ http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button and will need to choose one option from those given on the screen.
