Class 2 have
continued to learn about Pirates as their topic since returning after half term
but have been busy with lots of other learning too.
focussed on ‘The Magic Porridge Pot’ story. We have looked at the structure and
language of traditional tales, compared different versions and made up our own
versions of the tale too. We have had fun role playing the different characters
thinking about the story from each character’s point of view. We also enjoyed
World Book Day, sharing our books and props with children from Class 1 and
thinking about the characters in our favourite books.
revisited addition and subtraction, counting and place value. We have built on
our previous knowledge and used our skills for problem solving. This week, we
have had lots of fun learning about Measures. We had a practical start to the
week on Monday using a variety of different scales for measuring, being careful
to use the correct language to read and compare measurements.
In RE, we have
continued to learn about Judaism and the children have not only impressed us
with their ability to learn facts about Judaism but also being able to apply
some of what they have learnt to their own lives and our school values.
In Science, we have started to explore plants. We have looked at the different parts of a plant and we even got to pull apart a flower. We are closely observing our own plants to see what they need to grow.
In Art we have been looking at L.S Lowry. We looked at some of his famous pieces of art work and tried to recreate them ourselves. It was really fun mixing all of the paint colours to make them similar to the ones he used.
