Tuesday 10th March

 

Florence Nightingale - Royal Red Cross Medal

Today we have made medals like the one which Queen Victoria awarded Florence Nightingale for all her work to improve medical care in hospitals and her service during The Crimean War. The children are excited to tell you about what else they have found out about this famous nurse on Friday in their class assembly.

Monday 9th March - 3D Shape

This week we will be learning about 3d shapes and their properties. The children will practise describing how many vertices and edges different 3d shapes have, and looking closely at the faces of the shapes to say what 2d shapes they can see. They will sort and compare shapes. Ask your children if they can see cubes, cuboids, prisms, cones, cylinders or pyramids at home or when they are out.

World Book Day

The children have been very excited today to show their costumes of their favourite characters and to say what they are like. We have collected adjectives and created bubble words. See if you can match the adjective to a character!

Shrove Tuesday - Pancake Day

We've had fun this week talking about Shrove Tuesday and how it comes before Lent each year. The

children have enjoyed cutting their pancakes into quarters and choosing different toppings. Some people preferred a sour taste of lemons to the sweet taste of jam, sugar and syrup!

Weighing in Kilograms and Grams

We have been learning how to measure more accurately this week. To do this the children compared 1kg to half a kilogram, and learned to compare 200g to 500g; they learned that half a kilogram is the same as 500g. We looked at different packing to find the weight of items of food and estimated how much it weighed. The children will use their knowledge of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to read weight measures more accurately next week.

I have asked the children to look out for weights on packages, but have told them to ask before they go looking in cupboards!

Bread Making

The children have had great fun today measuring, weighing, kneading and finally baking their bread like the King's baker in Pudding Lane.

They will practise writing their own instructions tomorrow using imperative verbs like weigh, knead and roll.

Christmas Hats!

The children have really enjoyed showing off their Christmas hats and decorations.

 

Christmas Hats

Thank you to two of our mums who came in to talk to year 2 about their babies. One mum has already had her baby and our other mum is expecting hers in ten weeks. The children prepared questions about why it is important to eat the right food, get enough sleep, have enough exercise and keep clean to grow and be healthy - that's for mums and babies! This really kicked off our Science topic well - Humans and other Animals.
