Crazy cats!

This week we’ve been busy improving our work and performing to friends!

English:

In English this week, we have been improving our substituted stories. We peer and self assessed our writing, set ourselves targets and used these to help focus our rewrites. Lots of us worked on making our handwriting more neat and clear, using more interesting adjectives and adding a wider range of conjunctions.

Maths:

In Maths we have been recalling and applying our basic Maths skills, including number bonds, addition and subtraction. We want to make sure that our mathematical foundations are secure so that we are ready to build on them in Year 3.

Our class decided that this week, Martynas was our Maths Hero! He independently used his beadstring and numberline to solve a range of tricky subtraction calculations. Well done, Martynas!

Topic:

In our Topic lessons, we have been researching Deforestation and have begun writing scripts for our own news reports on the subject. Watch this space!…

P.E.

After weeks of preparing, this week we performed our final cat-inspired movement pieces to Aristotle class.

Thank you, Aristotle for being such a wonderful audience! We could tell you had been watching carefully as you were able to recreate some of the cat movements you’d seen!

Reading and Writing Champions:

Our Reading Champion this week is Maya.

Maya has been reading much more regularly and has been challenging herself by reading books outside her favourite genre and level.

Our Writing Champion this week is Nessa.

This week, Nessa did a great job at responding to feedback and levelling up a paragraph of her substituted story.
