We used fabric pens this week, alongside our design sheets to make our own pirate flags.
This week, we learnt to read simple coordinates as part of our Land Ahoy topic. We gave a pesky pirate some instructions to find his way around a treasure island. On Thursday we placed our ‘x’ on a map to bury our treasure and played a ‘Battleships’ style game.
Year 2 have been learning about famous pirates. This week we learnt all about Anne Bonny, by asking her parrot some questions. 2S enjoyed writing questions on the table in the Learning Hub and deciding which would provide us with the best information. They then asked ‘Pancake’ the parrot them and were amazed by his replies.
Year 2 have enjoyed using concrete apparatus and creating human number lines when focusing on addition and subtraction over the past few weeks. Today we played detective and read word problems, deciding whether the question was asking you to + or -.
Welcome to our new School Council representatives for this academic year. We are looking forward to working on new projects and initiatives with each council member. We hope to get lots of interesting ideas for ways to make our school even better! Please see your class representative if you have any exciting ideas to share. We aim to meet regularly
