Welcome to Class 2L.
Beano Creative week: we loved it! Everyone looked amazing on Friday and we played a few Beano pranks. During the week we drew cartoons, did some drama, made a comic strips and painted some comic words, We enjoyed a walk to the library to hear about the summer reading challenge based on the Mischief makers.
This was a fantastic trip, we had lots of fun during the day setting up camp, playing team games and doing three challenges. The children loved the tents and had lots of giggles in them. Please see our photos in the gallery to get a feel of the day and night.
We have started:
Alice in Wonderland : We have started to read and watch the part where Alice falls down the rabbit hole and are writing our own versions.
Plants : we have been looking at the plants in the school garden and will be planting our own seeds too.
Numeracy : we have been solving Alice in wonderland word problems, using our addition and subtraction skills.
We are getting excited to go to Wollaton park on Friday . I will post some photos of our day for you all to see.
Week ending 27th April
We've been working on the wonderful story Beedu by Alexis Deacon, about a lost, lonely alien who is trying to fit in on Earth. We've described our planet and written postcards, trying hard to include adjectives, conjunctions and contractions.
In our maths, we've been look at multiplication and division and the inverse relationships between them. We've worked at using our times tables knowledge to help us solve dividing questions. We've also looked at how to solve word problems in maths, looking for the clues in the question and underlining it to help us.
In our topic, we're learning all about Space and learning when important things have happened. We've learnt where things go on a timeline to order the events of the space race!
We've continued to work on our alien hand puppets and will be proudly bringing them home to play with soon!
I'm looking forward to our new story this week Bob the man in the moon. We shall write about who Bob, who he is , what he does as a job and what he likes to do.
We are practising some maths questions and reminding ourselves how to solve word problems. If you can think of any to make up at home and decide if you add, subtract, divide or multiply to solve it , this would be fantastic.
Spellings : You can find a copy of our spellings in Pupil Zone under Yr1/2 summer resources.
