Autumn 1 week 2
In Apple class this week we have been very busy!
In our English learning we have been learning about expanded noun phrases, we drafted, edited and wrote up in our best writing our setting descriptions from our class text. You can come and read these in our writing folders.
In Maths we have continued our learning on place value and have been looking at different ways to partition numbers using things such as part whole and place value charts. We have especially been thinking about how to show our working out and what method to use.
In our Art we have been looking at shading and how we can use different graded pencils to create different depths of shade.
In our Computing we have been started to use our new Purple Mash programme and have began to learn about programming and algorithms.
Autumn One week One
We have had a lovely first week back at school and a very positive one settling into year two.
In English, we have been starting to look at Descriptive writing about our class text, 'The Hodgeheg' by Dick King Smith. We have been learning about the features we are going to use such as writing in the past tense and using the first person and concentrating on using expanded noun phrases in our writing.
In Maths, we have starting a big focus on our two times tables and using Times Table Rockstars. We have also been looking at place value.
