Year 2 – Oak

Year 2 have been working extremely hard on writing their stories the Ice Palace. More recently we have been rewriting our own versions of Little Red Riding Hood. In mathematics we have been finding out about fractions. In order to understand what ¼, 2/4, ¾ and 4/4 means we created our own fraction pizzas from scratch. We have also been solving tricky problems. In our Art we have been developing our own Banksy works of art with paint. It has been really interesting finding out how to use our art to create messages.

Year 1 have worked very hard over the last few weeks and we are very proud of them.

We have been partitioning ‘teen’ numbers into tens and ones, counting in tens and looking at number lines practically and thinking where the numbers go.

In English have been following the story of ‘Halibut Jackson’ by David Lucas.  He is a very shy character and the children have been writing descriptions and letters about him.

In art, we have been creating portraits with pencil and paint.  The children have thought very carefully about where the different features are on faces with great results.

Wow! Well Done Year 1 for a great start to the year! We have completed so much learning in the last two weeks and you have all been amazing. We have been doing Phonics, Maths and English everyday as well as learning about our topic in the afternoons.
