Miss Davies: May 2016
We have had a busy week in Base 2!
Maths- Children in Year 1 have been doing some wonderful work on subtraction this week. We have used number lines and 100 squares as well as other maths equipment to aid us with our learning. Some of us have extended our learning by solving word problems using subtraction as well as challenging ourselves with subtraction number games (trying to find as many number combinations as possible).
We are moving our learning on looking at multiplication this week.
Literacy (Year 1) We have taken inspiration from the Queen's 90th Birthday and written some lovely descriptions about Her Majesty. Also, we have completed a reading exercise, comparing key facts about Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. The children found this work really interesting, finding out that Queen Victoria had 42 grandchildren! This links with our topic of toys and the Victorian Era which we are finishing. We ended the week by starting our own book reviews and this will continue next week alongside instruction writing.
Children in Year 2 have been taking part in split provision activities with Mrs Pascal. They have been focusing on addition and word problems in Maths. In literacy, the children have been writing interesting descriptions with extended noun phrases. They have also been focusing on reading comprehension activities.
All children in Base 2 are continuing to work on handwriting and reading skills ,taking part in a range of activities to improve their spelling, handwriting and reading.
Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend,

The children decided that first they would need to find out lots of information about the animals, diet, appearance, habitat and even a couple of extra 'interesting facts'...
