Class 3 2017-18

Positions in P.E

The children had to investigate whether it was easier to run from different starting positions. They stood with their feet together, they kneeled, they laid down on the floor and they crouched. The children then voted for the position they found the easiest to run from!

Re-drafting our fairy door designs

We have copied the design on our fairy door, but this time we had to use paint as our media. Do you think our design is more careful than the last? Next time we shall be painting onto the real doors!

Number sequences

We have been looking at what happens to numbers when we add 2, 3, 5 or 10. We talked about whether the tens or the ones number changed.

Making Numbers

We have been looking at different ways to make numbers! Look at how hard we have been working!

Times Tables!

We are constantly practising our times tables so that we know them in order and then in random order!

Expanding Nouns

We have been learning how to expand nouns today! We were given a boring sentence that we had to add adjectives to, so that the noun sounded more interesting!

Number Bonds

We have been looking at different ways to make numbers! Some were easy ways but others were quite tricky!

  

Science Walk

We’ve been searching for materials, living things and objects around school. The children had to name what they saw and then decide which group they should put it in. We found that some items were in 2 groups, such as a stick (object and material).

Minibeast Hunt

We have started our Science work with a mini beast hunt! What do you think we saw? Can you spot the mini beasts? Look carefully!

Welcome Year 2 children and parents!

Our essential question this Autumn term is ‘Where can magic take us?’

We look forward to sharing our work with you throughout the year.

Welcome to Class 3’s Page!

Welcome to the new term and a new year of learning in class 3.

This term we our kicking off our learning by considering our essential question ;

” What makes a great toy?”

We had an exciting project launch when we visited the Ritz Cinema in Lincoln for an exclusive private screening of Toy Story.

Since then we have been learning all about what Toys from the past are like.

Here is a picture of us playing some games from the past. How many do you recognise?

We are also beginning  a new way of learning maths in year 2 called Maths Makes Sense.

We are learning to use equipment to help us visualise maths ideas and skills.

Here are some pictures of us starting our learning journey.

Being better never ends in year 2 and we are really beginning to focus on our targets for this year. We have been using our target cards regularly to help us to improve our work.

Our first fair test!

This week we have been trying to solve a problem of how to keep Teddy dry in the rain. We needed to test a variety of materials to see which made the best umbrella.

We had to learn how to work like scientists and carry out a fair test. This means doing each test in the same way, using the same equipment, for the same length of time. That way we realised we could truly compare results. Look at our pictures of us working in our triads as we test and record our results!

January 2017

We are learning about how to improve our world.

We are reading a wonderful book called “The Tin Forest”

This inspired us to work together on some collages.

We put 2 versions together to show before and after the old man created his beautiful forest.
