Sports Day on Monday was a hugely exciting, busy and tiring day but very much enjoyed by all. Thank you for supporting us by coming to watch your children and cheering them on.
During the mornings this week the children have completed their reading special booklets (SATs). They have all worked really hard. You will be pleased to know that our SATs are now finished.
In Maths this week we have been partitioning numbers into different combinations of tens and ones. For example; 62 = 60 + 2, or 50 + 12, or 40 + 22, or 30 + 32 etc. The children used the tens and ones sticks to help them. We also applied this skill by drawing bar models to show the partition. Some children solved incorrect partition challenges for example 62 = 6 + 2 …”This is incorrect because the 6 digit is worth 6 tens so it should be 60 + 2.
A big well done to the children who took part in the dance showcase. We are really proud of their confident performance and we hope you all enjoyed coming to watch them.
Whilst the children were at the dance showcase, the rest of Year 2 completed some pirate art. We created a sea background using paint and added texture using sponges, forks and brushes. We then made a pirate boat using sugar paper and oil pastels to stick on top. This artwork, along with the treasure maps made a few weeks ago will be on display in the lower school hall.
After half term we will need lots of junk modelling. Please can you save this up and bring into school the first Monday back. Many thanks.
Enjoy the half term!
