    DCIS Proms 2016

3rd February 2017

English

This week the children have been authors and illustrators and have created their own version of the story, ‘That Rabbit belongs to Emily Brown’. They have used their knowledge of the story and the characters to make changes, whilst in keeping with the writing style of the author, Cressida Cowell. The children came up with some fantastic ideas and their versions of the story were superb. 

Maths

Problem solving has been our focus in Maths this week. The children have solved one and two-step word problems by first highlighting the important information; the numbers and the ‘clue’ word, which tells us which operation we need to use. Children were given the responsibility of choosing the method they wanted to use to solve the problem.

Project Work

This week the children have looked at the Art Deco design style and have looked carefully at different buildings to identify Art Deco features. They also looked at shophouses in Singapore and how they have changed over time. Did you know that some shophouses have Art Deco features?

Mandarin

This week the students learnt to tell the time using half past and minutes. They also had a revision of numbers 1-60. The students practised asking and answering questions about time using half past and minutes. They also practised the sentence structures: 该….了?(Should…be… already?) 我 …了 (I have already….). Please refer to the link for the flashcards regarding time: https://quizlet.com/_30aezv

Computing

Pupils have continued learning about scratch by changing values, have learnt to change the costume and add different sprites.

Physical Education

This week the pupils have been checking and measuring their jumping events using cones, markers & stickers.

Music

This week Year 2 students learned about accents (e.g. staccato and marcato) and how they can create unpredictability in music. Stravinsky’s 'Rite of Spring' was used to demonstrate this.

Homework

This week the Maths homework is to review number bonds to 10, 20 or 100. We would like the children to use their learning from last week solve problems using the partitioning method, a number line or column method.  The calculation policy with QR codes to videos for each of the methods is also attached.

UN Day Homework

The children have been asked to conduct some research about Mexico as part of our preparations for UN Day. Some children have been asked to find out about food, culture, language or interesting facts. The research should be completed by Monday 13th February and be ready to be shared with the rest of the class.
