Autumn 2- Movers and shakers
Ash class have really enjoyed the Movers and Shakers topic this half-term! We have learnt all about significant people from History. We particularly enjoyed learning about important women from History in an exciting workshop.
In R.E we learnt all about Diwali and the story of Rama and Sita! To celebrate we created our own Rangoli patterns and learnt a Bollywood dance.
Autumn 1- Minibeasts
Ash class have a had a wonderful start to Year 2! It has been a pleasure seeing them return to school happy and ready to learn!
Our first topic this half-term was Wriggle and Crawl where the children learnt all about minibeasts and their habitats. We started off this topic with a mini beast hunt around the school:
In maths the children have been learning about partitioning. They used concrete apparatus, such as, dienes and tens frames to represent the tens and ones in 2-digit numbers. The children are certainly growing in confidence in maths, and they are now able to use this knowledge to order and say which numbers are ‘greater than’ or ‘less than’!
