Miss Phillips: February 2019
We have had a lovely week of learning this week in Base 2.
In literacy we have been writing a newspaper report about Noi's missing cats. Everyone worked really hard to use prepositions, exciting vocabulary, conjunctions and the correct punctuation. Next week we are going to continue to plan our letter from Noi to the Storm Whale.
In Maths we have worked extremely hard to master the skills of addition and subtraction. Some of us have been adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers and then applying these to problems. We have challenged ourselves with missing numbers, using number lines and bar models to help us figure out the missing number. Next week we will be moving onto understanding and exploring fractions.
We have placed a lovely piece of writing in our brand new Learning Journey books. We saw the perfect opportunity on Thursday to add to our seasonal changes booklets by exploring what winter is like and how it has changed from Autumn. There was still snow on the ground and the pond had frozen, this generated excellent conversations about water changing states. Next week we will be presenting our Science work in our new books. We will also start on this term's geography work beginning with continents and oceans.
It was lovely to see so many of you join us for our sharing afternoon, the children very much enjoy being able to share their learning with you.
