Happy Easter!

During Maths this week we went on an Easter egg number hunt, we used the numbers to make addition and subtraction number sentences.

 

We went on a Spring hunt, taking photos of signs of Spring using the iPads.

 

On the scooters and bikes:

The boys have worked incredibly hard this term and have achieved so much, they should be very proud of themselves. Have a lovely Easter break!

Easter Celebrations

We listened to the Easter story and sequenced the main events.

 This week we recapped the sounds ‘ear’, ‘ur’, ‘ow’ and ‘nk’, along with the homework, please recap these sounds.

 During Maths this week we looked at patterns, we made our own patterns using a range of resources.

 

A trip to Green Meadow:

 

The boys had great fun during the Easter Egg hunt, it was very exciting to meet Peter Rabbit and Sonic. Thank you to the PTA for organising it and for the Easter Eggs!

 

We miss the ducklings so we decided to do some writing about them:

Don’t forget Mufti day on Monday- the boys can come in their own clothes.

Spend some money

Could you please visit a real shop to buy some small items such as sweets that cost less than £1 or 50p. Take a range of coins with you and practise counting in ones, twos and tens. Furthermore, if you have a toy till at home, practise using coins to buy different items. Have fun!

Goodbye Ducklings

Cally (Mrs Demetriou’s dog) and friends visited us on Tuesday. The dogs help people who have suffered from a stroke with their recovery. The dogs were very calm and gentle and showed us some of the games they play.

 

The ducklings have been enjoying the water and cuddles from the boys. They are now going back to the Incredible egg farm where they will have lots of fun with other ducks and their very own pond! It has been an amazing experience watching the ducklings hatch and grow, the boys made special cards and letters to the company to say thank you.

 

 

We had fun playing shops this week, recognising different coins and adding amounts together.

Telling the time

This week we have been learning about time, please draw some clocks with numbers 1-12. Please then add a minute hand and a hour hand to display different o’clock times. We have been drawing the hands in class and the boys have learnt that the hour hand is shorter than the minute hand and that both hands need to start from the middle and be drawn in a straight line. As an extension, please draw some half past times. Please write the times you made by commenting on this post. Have fun!

Ducklings!!

We started off Science week with a very exciting assembly, we experienced chemical and physical reactions. We then had a Science workshop throughout the day, digging for dinosaur bones and making our own dinosaur teeth.

 

Then on Tuesday our Duck eggs arrived!

 

And on Wednesday our first duckling hatched! The boys were amazed to watch the duckling take his first steps, fluff his feathers and chirp very loudly.

 

Thursday, Fluffy and Ryan hatched and Chippy and Fluffy moved to their new home.

 

Don’t forget to watch the videos of the ducklings:

Tell me a story..

The boys were so good at doubling last week, we moved onto halving numbers and shapes this week! We talked about sharing and how the two amounts need to be ‘equal’. We also looked at odd and even numbers.

 

We worked in groups to make our own story maps, we discussed the setting, characters, problem, solution and the key language used.

 

During World Book day we created speech bubbles for traditional tale characters and we started a Newsround project.  The Year 2 boys came and interviewed us about World Book day. Thank you Mrs Weinburg for reading us your story, it was good fun! Mrs Weinburg kindly gave all the boys a copy of her book to keep at home.
