We've had a very busy and exciting first few weeks in Base 2!

In English we starting looking at our text 'Emma Jane's aeroplane'. We made predictions about what we thought was going to happen then wrote a description of the front cover, thinking carefully about which adjectives we should use. We then started to think about where Emma Jane might be going on her aeroplane and where we would go if we were going on an adventure. We are going to write our own letters to Emma Jane telling her all about our adventures next week.

In Maths, we have had a key focus on number and place value. Ensuring we know all our numbers from 1-50 (year 1), can identify 1 more and 1 less and can compare groups of objects using the greater than, less than and equal to signs and vocabulary. Year 2 have been looking at how to partition numbers, identifying the value of each digit and using this knowledge to order and compare numbers. They have applied this learning to solve problems and reason mathematically. We have also been learning how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s from any given number. The year 2s have done a great job of learning their 10 times table, and have even started a times table club to practice them! Fantastic!

During history, we have learnt all about The Wright brothers. The children have loved finding out who the Wright brothers were and why they were famous. In geography, we learnt all about human and physical features, looking at aerial photographs to identify them. We moved on to create our own maps of Wrenbury Primary School!

Thank you to everyone who came to the KS1 pastoral meeting last week. I will leave some links below of some websites you and the children can visit to support their learning at home further.

What a lovely few days in Little Wrens 2 . We have been reading a wonderful book called 'Stardust', from this we have been focusing on space. We have painted our own planets after looking at pictures of the ones in our solar system- Saturn was the children's favourite. We used a range of materials to make different patterns, the allium head that we used made a wonderful pattern. We...
