In English this week we have been looking at vocabulary. We started with 'boring' words like 'big' and 'good' and used thesauruses and of course our brains to think of better words for them. Look at our ladders.
Our talking point this week centred around the book 'I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato' by Lauren Child. We looked at the different foods that are healthy and tried some different fruits: pomegranate, apricot, figs and kiwis.
We explored the seven continents of the world this week in our Geography lessons. We listened to a fabulous song and played a game with a blow up globe!
Our talking point this week was all around how to keep our bodies healthy and the things we can do to help. Here we are engaging in some 'meditation' to keep our minds healthy!
We have been busy in Y2 using the Beebots to help us discover more about the seven continents of the world. We have also used ipads and laptops to practice our coding skills.
Could you be a superhero?
This week our topic kicked off with a visit from some real life superheroes in our community. The local PCSOs and members of Blue Watch at Mansfield Fire Station came to talk to us about the personal qualities and attributes they must demonstrate in order to do their jobs. We then thought about our own personal attributes and the qualities we posses and wrote them inside a person outline. We had a great afternoon!
Maths - Place value
This week have been learning all about the tens and ones in a 2 digit number. We have partitioned 2 digit numbers using equipment like dienes, numicon and place value counters. We have also used the part whole model and place value charts to help us. We also wrote number sentences after partitioning and demonstrated how to recombine the number.
Communities and Belonging
We started the year by thinking about the different communities we belong to, whether it be at home, at school, as part of a club or a religion.
