This week in English we have used all of our phrases and sentence openers to write an information text about Neil Armstrong. We started by introducing our text to the reader, then wrote about when he was little and then moved on to what he achieved in his life. I am so impressed with this writing and we finished the week off by writing it up into neat ready for our study work books.
In maths, we have worked on adding two digit numbers to one digit numbers using the column addition strategy. I was impressed to see you could apply this to part whole models and bar models. Well done year 2. We have also practised our counting in 3s daily this week, I have already seen you get more fluent! We enjoyed this song to help us to learn. Click here to listen!
In the afternoons this week, we have continued to work on our PowerPoints on space. You have now added a new slide, saved and opened your work and even added a photo and text. They are looking impressive already! Thank you to the year 6 computer helpers who came to help us this week too.
We have also started our geography unit on hot and cold places. We recapped our learning from Year 1 on continents and then learnt a new word...equator! We found the continents nearest and furthest from the equator and worked out what the temperature would be like for each of the continents. Which was the hottest continent and why?
In history, we learnt more about Neil Armstrong and why we remember him. We thought about his famous quote "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" and what is means.
In music, our song of the week has been 'Rockin' all over the World' by Status Quo. You listened to all of the instruments used in the song. You then played a game of moving to the beat of 'I wanna play in a band' like nodding your head, stamping your feet and clapping. You made your own rhythm grid by clapping our names and listened to the new song back!
Have a lovely weekend.
