We are enjoying our topic There’s no place like home and this week we continue to learn about the countries of the UK.
IHL and 1TS – This week in English we have been reading Katie in Scotland and writing sentences using a capital letter at the beginning, finger spaces between words and a full stop to finish a sentence. Keep practising your speed sounds at home, we are really proud of how hard the children are trying with their writing! In maths, we have been ordering smallest to greatest, looking at ordinal numbers and number lines. In our topic, we have been learning about Scotland – we listened to bagpipes, tried on a kilt and drew a thistle, the national flower. Our story in Mighty Warriors this week was Room on the Broom – Rachel is impressed with our yoga poses and how we are making progress. What a busy week!
1MG – This week the children in 1MG have been working on editing and publishing their work in English and Mr Griffiths is super proud of them all. In maths they have been working on counting in 2, 3, 5, 10’s. Keep working hard Year 2!
Have you been to Scotland? Feel free to send us some photos and we can share them in class.
