Miss Phillips: June 2019
We had a great week last week in Base 2.
Our Literacy lessons, took us to Madagascar where we explored a range of information about the country. We had to sort these facts under the most appropriate subheading, we then used the plan to help us write our very own fact file about Madagascar. Following this we retold the story The Lion Inside, with some of us changing parts of the story to make it our own. Everyone worked very hard to make their writing as exciting as possible and we are working hard to make our handwriting very neat.
In Maths, we explored multiplication and division further. We used a range of strategies and resources to help us. This week in maths, we are doing statistics and collecting data all about being healthy.
We began our history learning for this term last week. We are focusing on a significant person from the past who made an impact on the future. We are learning about Wangari Maathai who was responsible for the Green Belt Movement and changed the way people treated their environment in Kenya initially and then it spread around Africa. We are going to continue to build on our knowledge through another story about Wangari Maathai.
We finished last week on a high, coming joint first with Base 1 in the attendance! A super effort from both classes, let's aim to win it again this week!
This week is health and well-being week and we have already made a start to ensuring we are living healthy lives and looking after ourselves. Year 2 went to the Wingate Centre for some trampolining and gymnastics and this afternoon we have been exploring food groups and what each food group does for our bodies.
Don't forget your challenge for this week, drinking 8 glasses of unsweetened drinks every day!
