Year 2 have been very busy this week continuing their learning about Time Travel. They have loved excavating cookies for chocolate chips, like real archaeologists and enjoyed learning about Howard Carter, a real life archaeologist.
In Literacy Year 2 have worked hard to innovate a text map about Rosa Parks and create their own exciting recounts about a day in the life of a Caveman. The recounts include lots of hunting, cave building and eating! The children then used Laptops to present their work, they have amazed us with their ICT abilities.
In Maths they have continued learning about multiplication; using resources and drawings to help them solve problems. They confidently learnt their 2,5 and 10 x tables and any further learning of these at home would be brilliant to consolidate and be able to instantly recall facts . They especially loved learning the 3 x table to the song Uptown Funk, ask them to sing it to you at home! They carefully considered the bigger picture and when they will use multiplication in their every day lives.
The children had a surprise visit from the Chinese Lions and loved listening to the drums and watching them dance. They all looked fabulous in their costumes and loved eating the Chinese snacks!
Next week there is a non uniform day on Tuesday 12th February, please bring in 100 THB for charity. We are also looking forward to hearing how helpful Year 2 have been at home to raise money for charity too.
Many thanks for your continued support.
The Year 2 Team
