This week year 2 and 3 have had a busy week doing class work, group work and in the challenge areas. In numeracy we have been learning about fractions of shapes and amounts. We have completed lots of practical tasks and games on fractions.
In literacy the children followed instructions to make a balancing bird. They talked about how easy the instructions were to follow and if they could be improved in any way. They wrote a list of bossy verbs in their books ready to write their instructions next week.
In science the children have identified and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper. They talked about why certain materials are used instead of other materials.
We learnt about the Wright brothers and found out how important they were in the history of flight.

Once again year 2 and 3 have been working extremely hard in both class work, group work and in the challenge areas. In maths the children have been exploring near doubles and making connections with other mathematical concepts.
In literacy the children have written some lovely stories and I am really proud of their hard work. In Science the children have deepened their understanding of forces and magnets through applying their knowledge by designing a magnetic game.

In literacy the children have started writing some fantastic stories linked to the book the ‘Story Machine’. They have tried really hard and are looking forward to read their stories to the rest of the class next week.
In science we have been learning about different forces and this week we have been talking about how magnets work. Children have enjoyed sorting items in class into magnetic and non magnetic.
