As renovation work continues we have now moved out of our classroom and into the Prefab building. For the next 2 to 3 weeks 2SS will need to be dropped off and picked up at the cabins which are located on the junior playground. We are looking forward to seeing what our new classroom will look like.
In English, we have started a new text all about interviews. We interviewed each other to find out what it feels like and how people answer questions. Next we will be looking at what makes an effective question before interviewing Y4 about what it is like to be a junior.
In Maths, we have started to use our knowledge of place value to find different amounts of money. To help with this we looked at no work number sentences and solved many of these in our books e.g. 53 = 50 + 3, 43 -3 = 40. Next we will be using our knowledge of place value to add or subtract 10p.
In Science we thought about which material would be good for a boat. We tested plastic, metal, wood and fabric. We found that although the fabric floated it absorbed the water and became heavy. The best material was a wood or plastic.
In History we discussed why Christopher Columbus was significant. We found out that he introduced people to tomatoes and potatoes and that he traveled to The New World 4 times. Up next we will be comparing Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus.
This term we will be making our own lunchbox. This week we decorated our lunchboxes. Next we will be making them stronger by adding cardboard before covering them in plastic to ensure they stay waterproof.
