    LP To make notes. (English & History)

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have been learning about another significant figure in our English and History learning this week, Captain Blackbeard. The children have used a text and the computers to find out facts about this famous pirate so that we can write about him next week. Did you know that he was born in Bristol? He also made his hair smoke so that he looked more scary when he walked about!

    DT Cut materials safely using tools provided

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 have been learning how to use scissors very carefully to cut sugar paper to create desert islands. We looked at the real Robinson Crusoe island off the coast of Chile and zoomed in to look at the forests and beaches. The children tried very hard with their island shapes and layering the paper.

    DT To measure to the nearest cm.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We created our own palm trees by painting tubes and making palm tree leaves. We had to measure the leaves very carefully using rulers so that they were nice and long and then cut them into leaf shapes too.

    Science LP To find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 explored lots of different materials: wood, plastic, metal, fabric, blu tac and rubber. We discovered how they could change and if they could change back again afterwards. We recorded our results in a table and came up with lots of great words to describe how we had changed the materials.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Our maths this week has focused on shapes. We have learnt how many sides these shapes have and that they all need to be straight. We especially understood that the sides of the shapes don't have to be the same length.

    PSHE To listen to other people and contribute my own ideas about rewards and consequences.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In PSHE this week we talked about how some behaviour helps us to learn and gets rewarded. However, some behaviour does not help us learn and this behaviour gets consequences. We talked about what these may be and what they considered fair.

    English LP: To identify the features of a biography.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In English, we have been reading Robinson Crusoe and have looked at a biography called, The Real Robinson Crusoe. This is about a man called Alexander Selkirk who was marooned on a desert island 300 years ago and is thought to be who the story was based on. The children have looked at the features of this such as the title, introduction, paragraphs, heading and conclusion. We then looked at what each paragraph contained and made up actions to help us remember this.
