We are very excited to start our time in Year Two!
In Year 2LC we have lots of exciting learning to explore and to share with you.
Please come and visit our page for all of our super learning!
Today we used Numicon and Base 10 to help solve reasoning problems. We had to find amounts that were <, > or = and work out what we had to add to each side to make them equal or to make the number sentence correct. It was very tricky and we really enjoyed ourselves.
This week we have been learning all about Diwali. Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. The festival coincides with the Hindu New Year and celebrates new beginnings, good over evil and light over darkness. We worked together as a class to listen to the story of Rama and Sita and then coloured in different pieces of a jigsaw puzzle which we then put together by helping each other. It was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed our learning.
We have started a new system of 'Golden Time' where the children choose which activity they want to take part in during 'Golden Time'. The children from Key Stage 1 all chose different activities such as 'Just Dance', 'Arts and Crafts' and construction. The children with Mrs. Carpenter constructed Wolstanton High Street from Lego and building blocks. They were very keen to get as much in as they could and took it very seriously as you can see.
Our class rules and how to avoid spreading germs.
Today we worked hard to decide our class rules. We thought hard about how we need rules so that everyone feels safe and is happy in our class. We took photos to show how we should sit up smartly, be a good listener, line up smartly and walk through school. We talked about what having kind hands and feet looks like. We will use the photos to help remind us how to follow our rules.
We discussed how germs can be spread easily and how we need to wash our hands after going to the toilet and to avoid touching our faces or mouths, as this will spread them very quickly. To highlight this we put our hands in green glitter and then checked how much there was at the end of the day. Some was in our hair and on our faces!
