Land Art in the playground!

In Maths this week we have been using a range of strategies to find the difference between two numbers.  We have tried solving problems by counting on and subtracting and have used multi-links, bead strings and number lines.

In English we read Jasper’s Beanstalk and have used conjunctions to join two shorter sentences together.  We enjoyed playing a conjunctions board game to give us practise extending our sentences, before writing our own.  Our writing is really improving.

For Art we were lucky the weather allowed us to create natural land art outside, in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.  We worked really well with our partners and enjoyed the process and results (although we were battling with the wind towards the end!).

We were very interested to find out about some Hindu symbols in RE and were particularly fascinated by the lotus flower which grew from muddy waters.

Times Tables Rock Stars: Children should practise their times tables  on the Times Tables Rock Stars website. In Year 2, we focus on 2x, 5x and 10x.  Certificates are awarded for the highest scorers! Please let us know if you are not able to access Times Tables Rock Stars at home.

It looks like the sun is going to shine for us and we hope you all enjoy the weekend.
