This week in maths, we have been focusing on different combinations of coins when making a certain value. This culminated with us visiting the year 2 shop and having to have the right money to buy certain items.
In English this week, we have been focusing on the story 'The Bridge'. There was a dilemma between a grizzly bear and a grumpy elk. First we had to sequence the events of the story. Then we wrote key vocabulary to describe the characters, use conjunctions to connect sentences before finally re-telling the story in our own words.
In maths this week, we explored two digit numbers specifically looking at the value of each digit. We went outside and using chalk produced different pictorial representations.
In English this week, we have been focusing on the story 'The Lion Inside'. We have been making predictions based on the front cover, writing key vocabulary to describe the lion and the mouse, acting out scenes from the story and sympathising with character feelings.

We Love PE!
Have a look at our photos of us doing PE. In these pictures you will see us having great fun playing 'hats and bowls' (one of our favourite warm up games). We really have to work together (one of the school's learning values of collaboration), to try and beat the other team.
Our topic in Geography this term, has been to discover if the world has always looked the same?
We used atlases, Google Earth, books and the internet to try to answer our question. We discovered that IT HAS NOT!
In actual fact we found out that the continents on the world used to be joined together as one super continent called Pangea.
We learnt that after the continents had drifted apart, that very slowly, over millions of years, some of the land masses started to drift back together again. India used to be an island in the Southern ocean and it gradually drifted towards Asia, creating the Himalayas as it moved.
Check out our photos of us being Asia, the Himalayas and India.
INSTRUCTIONS - make a jam sandwich
We have just started learning to follow and write our own instructions, to make a jam sandwich, yum. We are learning that instructions need to be bossy (Eat your sandwich - yum!). We have learnt that instructions need to be written and followed in the correct order. At the end of next week, we are going to think about harvest produce and make an apple crumble - yum!!
