This week we have been working on our collage in Art. The children chose a landscape photograph and traced it on tracing paper. Then they needed to 'scribble' over the backside of their traced landscape. Finally we then transferred the traced picture in their books. The entire class was so focussed while working it was amazing.
In Maths we have been working on 'EXCHANGING TEN ONES FOR ONE TEN' and 'EXCHANGING ONE TEN FOR TEN ONES' .
This week we learnt about Saint Alban in History. At the beginning of the lesson we were time detectives and tried to find out which influential person's story was displayed in our class room. Following our mystery museum walk we watched a short animated film about Alban and why he is considered England's first saint. The children then reenacted Alban's story.
We have had a very busy week again this week. We have started our first Literacy unit 'Frog and the Stranger' and the children are enjoying our 'Word of the Day' which were explorer, anxious, suspicious and curious so far this week. In history we have discussed Rosa Parks and how important it is to stand up for ones believes. In PE we have pretended to be the flames from the Great Fire of London and improvised the movements of flames with our body. In our spelling lesson we have created a silly sentence with as many 'ee' sounds as the children could come up with. They came up with amazing sentences.
Welcome to Year 2 Robins!
The children have made a good start and settled well into our daily routines. In Literacy we have been working on picture descriptions focusing on nouns and adjectives (ask your child if they remember our learnt chant) and in Maths we dived right into our first lessons working on our number knowledge, doubles and number bonds to 10. We have also started with our History topic, Influential People, and Art topic, Collage; Florence Nightingale and Robin Brooks were our focus this week..
