This week in Year 2 We focused on representing doubles today using multilink and ladybirds. We had to make sure that both sides of the ladybird were equal and we then wrote out our calculation to find the answer.
In Year 2 over the last few weeks, we have been looking at our Science topic of Materials. We went outside to find different materials and their properties. We then had a task to find a waterproof material to use for a new house for the three little pigs. We tested plastic, wood, and fabric to see if they were waterproof!
Year 1 have had a great start to the week! For our creative hook into writing , we all went outside for a teddy bear picnic and read Brian's Bear Picnic, with our big teddy bear, honey sandwiches, succulent strawberries and some tasty banana cake.
Our focus in Maths this week in Year 2 is length and height. We compared lots of different objects that we found in the classroom and outdoors, including ourselves, to see which was taller, shorter, longer or smaller. We had great fun looking outside for lots of unusal items!
