Fi fi fo fum…

“… I smell the blood of an Englishman!”

You can guess what story we have been reading in English this week, to link with our Science topic of plants and growing.  Yes, Jack and the Beanstalk.   We have sequenced pictures of the story, created a story mountain, acted out different scenes and now we are all ready to write our own versions next week, where we will be thinking hard about our sentence structure and use of punctuation.

This week in Maths we have focused on money.  We are able to recognise the different coins and understand how to try to use as few coins as possible to make an amount, relating it to regrouping tens and ones.

In our Computing lessons this week we have really enjoyed learning how to edit photos by cropping and changing the colour.

In Geography we all had fun looking at an aerial photo and map of school and the surrounding area.  We even located where our classrooms are.

In Art we are continuing our theme of nature and Andy Goldsworthy and started making an autumn wreath.  We thought about appropriate autumn colours to use and enjoyed collaging a background.

We can’t believe we only have one week left of the first half term.  It’s gone so quickly.

Have a lovely weekend and see you next week.

The Year 2 Team.
