Another busy week in year 2.
Today in Big Write the children wrote a persuasive letter on behalf of The Girl in Roald Dahl’s book: The Magic Finger. We thought carefully about how to set the letter out and then had to use persuasive language to stop a family hunting using the facts from last weeks debate. Some children were very passionate when it came to persuading them that they disagreed with hunting animals.
The children have begun to look at the growth of St Albans in their topic work. We used maps and graphs to investigate how the population of St Albans has grown over time. It was very interesting for them to see that this area where the school is was Cunningham farm!
In maths we have continued with multiplication and division. We have investigated multiples of 2, 5 and 10. We have answered problems and used reasoning to explain our answers. Home learning this week is practising the commutative law of multiplication and division. Thank you to those who attempted the home learning 2 weeks ago with how to measure a very tall tree. We had some very amusing answers.
In music Mr Bainbridge has been teaching the children to read notation as to when to play their percussion instruments and at what speed.
Advent has been the focus of RE for this and next week, as we learn about how Christians prepare for the celebration of Jesus. The children have written an acrostic poem to make a class book out of. You will hopefully be able to see these books when you come for book look on Thursday 6th December.
We hope you have a lovely weekend
Mrs Fernandes, Mrs Hostein and Miss Spencer.
