Friday 17th November 2017

I would like to start by thanking all of those who came to Parents’ Evening this week. It was such a pleasure to share your child’s progress with you. The children in 2SS are dedicated to their learning and are all an absolute pleasure to teach.

In English, we have been busy learning about the Moon. We have learnt about the suffixes -er and -est and how we use these to compare. We then looked at noun phrases and extended noun phrases and how we can use these in an information text. On Friday, we used different sources to gather information. We used the internet, video, information sheets and books. On Monday, we will be putting these together to create our own fact file!

In Maths, we have been super busy learning all about fractions of amounts. We used the cubes to help us understand sharing and how this can help us find 1/2 or 1/3. We then looked at the tricky method of grouping, we are going to continue using this on Monday when we are going to be finding quarters of amounts.

In Science we have been developing our knowledge of materials by sorting them into groups. We looked at different items and thought about why they were made out of that material. We found that a towel is made out of fabric so that it can soak up water. We then explained that a window is made of glass so that we can see through it. Next week we will be trailing different materials to see which is the best boat for Christopher Columbus to travel in.

In Geography, we labelled the 5 oceans. We then put them in order of size. A well done to Jasmine who spotted that the challenge wanted them to start with the smallest.

This term we will be making our own lunchbox. This week we looked at a variety of different of lunchboxes to find what makes the best product. Next week we will be looking at different materials.

Well done to Brody who was our Learning Hero! He is an absolute pleasure to teach and displays such beautiful manners.

Our Championship Point winners were Olivia, Sophie, Jasmine, Lily and Edie.
