Year 2 pupils have been adding two 2-digit numbers together where the numbers need to be regrouped. We discussed exchanging 10 ones for a ten and then extended ourselves when we realised that in some cases we would have to exchange ten 10s for 100.
Today Year 2 pupils have been exploring diary extracts from September 1666. We explored some of th features and discussed unknown words that we needed clarifying. We really enjoyed our new table lay out – we might have to try and use it again!
Year 1 pupils have been using ICT, role play and non fiction texts to gather information and create memorable experiences. They were able to share facts about th fire afterwards. Ask them when you see them!
Today’s challenge in maths was to find the eleven different ways to make 10, using only two numbers. Then we had to see if we noticed any patterns in the numbers.
We found all eleven ways and noticed that the cubes made a staircase going up 1 and down 1 each time. Also, we noticed the numbers are commutative, when we turned the cubes around they matched their ‘partner’ number sentence.
Class 1 welcomed the NSPCC in to school today. We learnt about speaking out and staying safe. We talked about how we feel safe and what we can do to speak out at times when we are unhappy, talking about who is a safe person that we can speak to at school and also at home.
This week we are developing our instruction writing ready for our writing assessment. Today we planted seeds by following instructions and then wrote the instructions up. This afternoon we will be making Tudor houses as part of our DT and history learning. We will be using this experience to help us to write a set of instructions in English.
What features might we want to include in our instructions?
Today pupils have been giving and following instructions. Mrs Moden gave us some instructions but we weren’t very impressed! We modelled how to give better instructions by adding more details and using time adverbials. Pupils then extended their learning to have a go at recording instructions and tried using numbered steps to help their partner follow the instructions.
This week Class 1 have been creating landmarks of London. Pupils chose their own method of creating their landmark, with some opting for construction materials, cutting and using paper craft as well as drawing and researching using the Internet.
Ruby extended her learning at home and created a Lego London. Can you name some of the landmarks she has made?
