Next week in English we will be learning about riddles.
See if you can find what a riddle is at home. Can you find a book that has some riddles in or maybe you could find some riddles on the internet. Why not write your own riddle and bring it in and show us.
Over the past 2 weeks in Maths we have been pracitising a range of strategies for answering questions with all 4 operations.
Look at the operation signs below, can you name them? Can you tell someone what happens to a number when you do this operation (does it get bigger/smaller?) How can you write a number sentence with this operation?
We have been using pictorial representations to help us answer these questions and the number facts we already know. E.g a blank numberline, or drawing dienes.
Choose a number in the red circle, choose an operation and then choose a number in the green triangle. Can you make a number sentence?
*Challenge – Now choose your own numbers, or ask someone to choose some for you.*
Yesterday 2T really enjoyed their visit to Ladywell Park to meet the Easter Bunny. They took with them some cards they had made for the bunny, to make him feel a bit better. Sadly, this week a pesky fox had stolen the bunny’s eggs and the bunny had been feeling quite sad.
It was all ok in the end, the eggs were found and everyone enjoyed eating them.
On Monday Year Two had a very special visit from the Lewisham Fire Brigade. They came along with two of their fire engines, which they drove onto the playground!
2T were lucky enough to go outside first and have a look at the fire engine in more detail. The children got to see all the equipment behind the shutters, climb on board and have a look at all the gadgets. Then everyone got to try a helmet on. Once the children had climbed out the other side they each had a turn using the hoses. It was a lot of fun.
After this we all went inside and met Mark and Mustafa, who taught us all about fire safety.
