What will we be learning about this term?
Welcome to Year 2! Birch Class have settled well into their new classroom and are enjoying making new friends. This week we have been learning about the place value of digits in 2-digit numbers. We worked systematically to find all the numbers we could make using different numbers of counters in a tens and ones grid.
In history we learnt about how boats looked in the past and how they were powered. We looked at the different features and their names. We also looked at modern cruise ships and how different they are to ships like the Titanic. We put the ships into a timeline using our understanding of chronological order. Finally, we chose our favourite ship and sketched it in our art books.
This week we went to Forest School for the first time. Lots had changed since we visited last year! We got straight to work building dens, making mud cakes, hunting for creepy-crawlies and painting trees with our muddy mixture. Next week we are looking forward to climbing trees!
