This week we have been exploring a range of multiplication problems. We learnt about different styles of questions that we could find on our Y2 SATS maths paper. Towards the end of the week, we began to explore doubling. We worked with our learning partner to take it in turns to mirror the number our partner was showing on their fingers, this helped us develop our understanding of the concept of doubling. The lesson progressed to using manipulatives to double numbers, to continue to further our understanding. Next week we are going to use our knowledge of recalling doubles up to 10 to support our learning with doubling two-digit numbers. We are looking forward to next week, as we will be taking our maths learning into the hall to participate in some active maths.
Over the last two weeks we have been exploring stories by the same author. The author we chose to study was Julia Donaldson, as we all agreed that her books are amazing! During our computing lessons we researched and recorded facts about Julia Donaldson, did you know she has also wrote songs for children’s television! We learnt lots of very interesting facts. During this lesson we also focused on the importance of using the computers safely. Continuing with this topic, we read the Julia Donaldson story, Room on the Broom. We loved the story so much, that we decided to create our own storyboard retelling the story. To help us develop our writing skills further, our challenge this week was to use subordinating conjunctions in our writing. We are continuing to develop this skill over the upcoming weeks. We edited our draft storyboard and are now in the process of completing our final piece to present to the class.
This week in Team CT, we have been very busy tidying up the classroom after a tornado messed up all of the classroom! The tornado left a large hole under the Christmas tree and Noel the classroom elf escaped down the hole. We were left asking, where is Noel? We decided the best way to find Noel would be to write a newspaper article to raise awareness that he was missing! We started getting busy straight away learning new skills, so that we could write an amazing newspaper article to help find Noel. Once the articles were complete, we left them for other children and teachers to read at Park Street. Later in the week, Noel was found back in Team CT! He had written a note explaining how he was really sorry he had to leave so sudden, but he had to get back to help Santa Claus at this extremely busy time. Noel was very excited to give Team CT a very special message all the way from the North Pole.
