Learning in Action - June 2018
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came to join us with our science learning. Everybody really enjoyed the practical aspect of the lesson and some of us even learnt something new!
KS1 went over to the junior field to have a tea party to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle.
On Friday 16th March, Year 2 enjoyed a Best of British Tea Party. They dressed in the colours of the Union Jack Flag (red, white and blue) and tried out different food from around the United Kingdom:
Welsh Cakes, Tunnocks Caramels and Tea Cakes, Scones with cream and jam, Scottish Shortbread, Irish Soda Bread and Irish Potato Cakes.
They also enjoyed eating the fairy cakes they had made during the week as part of their measuring lessons in Maths.
This term our learning in action session involved our Design Technology skills. As part of our topic we will be making a car. Our parents came along to the session and helped us with our measuring and sawing of wood to make our car chassis. Thank you to all the parents who came along and got stuck in! We hope you enjoyed the learning.
In English, we have started our instruction learning journey this week. The first steps are to follow commands. We have watched and followed instructions for making Paper Plate Jellyfish and Paper Plate Turtles. We have also read instructions and followed them to make Friendship Bracelets and Paper Plate Fish.
In Year 2 we have been learning about fractions of shape. We had to find as many different ways as possible to show half of a bar of chocolate as part of a problem. We used multi-link to help us find lots of different ways, then we recorded them in a diagram.
Thank you to all the parents who joined us at our 'Learning in Action' session on Friday 20th October. We had lots of fun telling the time.
As part of our Titanic topic, Year 2 visited the Sea City Museum in Southampton to take part in some guided tours and workshops. We had a fantastic day and the staff were very impressed by our knowledge about the Titanic. Thank you to all of the adults who came with us and helped us throughout the day.
More photographs of our trip are in the Children's Gallery area of the website.
In Year 2, we have been securing our place value knowledge by using practical resources.
