This week, in year 2, we have been continuing our time work by solving time problems, for example: ‘Tom left the castle at half past 2. It took him an hour and a half to walk home. What time did he get home?” We also played a pairs game to help us remember how many minutes are in an hour, hours in a day, days in a week, etc. At the end of the week we looked at number patterns, worked out the rule, and applied it to continue the sequence.
In English we made a map to show the princess’ journey from the palace to the castle. Children worked in pairs to create maps showing the Norwegian features, such a ‘thickly needled pine forest’, ‘frozen lakes’ and ‘bride-white snow’. They then used these maps to help them write a set directions using adjectives, similes and alliteration.
In topic we have looked at how animals are adapted to cold climates and had a go at designing our own animal with winter features. We also looked at towers from around the world and located these on a world map.
For those of you that have children in sharks (18 of them) that are doing the dance show case, we look forward to seeing you at the show on Wednesday. Remember your child will need collecting from the Open venue at 8:50pm. Please ensure they have their costume for the show ready to take with them, a packed tea (if you have not ordered, and paid for, a burger), plus snacks and a drink to keep them going!
