It seems incredible that we are now in our last term in Year Two. With sunnier days to come (hopefully) we will be starting to use the outside space more for our learning.
In English last week and this week we have been focusing on our descriptive writing. We started our learning about 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by using our senses to describe chocolate. We then used our imagination to think what our own sweet invention would be and described it. This week we have thought of the many adjectives and descriptive phrases to describe Charlie Bucket's house and then wrote a description of it.
In maths we have been practising our number skills and considering which is the most efficient method or strategy to work out the answer to different calculations. We have been taking turns to explain how we have arrived at our answer.
In science we have been learning about what plants need to thrive and have planted our own Runner bean seed. We will be continuing to observe its growth (using magnifying glasses) over the following weeks and write using scientific vocabulary such as shoot, stem, sprout, germinate.
In history we have learnt about the life of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' author Roald Dahl and written some of these facts that we remember. We have also created a timeline of some of his most famous books in the order that they were first published.
We hope you have a super long Bank Holiday weekend.
Mrs Adams is looking forward to seeing our Home Learning Journals next Tuesday.
