Welcome to Year 2!

During WOW day we made boats out of paper, tin foil and plasticine to see which material floated the best. We tested them by counting how many cubes they could hold before they sank.

As part of our literacy lesson, the children have been looking at information texts on animals.

We have spent this week reading a variety of information text and fact sheets.

We have also learnt about our special friend called Tipsaphadi, who helps us to remember what we need to put in an information text.

(Title, Introduction, Picture, Subheading, Ambitious vocab, Paragraphs, Habitat, Appearance, Diet Interesting fact)

This week we have been learning about fractions. The children are working on ½ ¾ 1/4. We have seen some excellent examples of how to use fractions in our learning.

Next time you go shopping with your parents or carers, try to work out how much everything will cost by adding the prices together.
