We have had a great afternoon, taking part in our races. We are so proud of all of the children. Well done :-)
The children had a special delivery today, from the GFOL Builders. They've sent them some wooden houses to recreate the Tudor houses from 1666 to allow them to evaluate their building plans for our playground! The children aren't happy about them building on our playground...lets hope we can persuade them otherwise!
They did however, enjoy painting the houses which will form part of a 3d model plan for the builders.
They used their colours to create others and had great brush strokes when painting.
We have been working on multiplication and as part of this, we have looked at arrays. Arrays are all around us and help us to understand the multiplication sentences. They are made up of rows an columns.
Look at these great arrays the children drew and made.
Wow, a junk modelling morning! What a great first morning back after half term.
The children were in awe to see a classroom full of boxes, glue and all thinks junk to allow them to create a house.
What fantastic creations!
This week we have read the story of The Invisible String and have used this as a text driver for our learning. The children have produced some fantastic work. Here are some string pictures they made.
Year 2 enjoyed a fantastic treat in the form of Polar Express. The excitement built as the children awoke to golden tickets and instructions to wear their PJ's for school. To arrive to a train track in their classrooms and adults in pjs too. We went on a fantastic, imaginary train ride, boarding the Polar Express and enjoyed watching the movie and a hot chocolate too.
What a fantastic day had by all!
We even know how the numbers are made up. We used our Part Whole Models, to show the parts of a number and how they are made.
We are learning all about place value - the value of the numbers and the place they are. We know that a 2 digit number is made up of tens and ones. Have a look at us sorting numbers, using diennes into our place value charts.
We enjoyed our hook into our new Literacy text today... Mixed! We had fun mixing the primary colours to create other colours, just like the book. We can't wait to do more work, discovering the colours and their emotions.
