Egypt Autumn 1
This half term, Egypt class have settled in wonderfully to life in Year 2.
In English, we have explored a defeating the monster text, Jack and the Beanstalk, we have innovated the story and wrote a letter of persuasion. We have learnt how conjunctions can join sentences together and noun phrases adds description to our writing.
In maths, we have explored different methods of addition and subtraction. We have begun to use our knowledge of place value to help us solve these equations using the column method.
In science, we have learnt all about different survival needs of animal groups. You may have seen our fantastic pictures of year 2 handling whole fish! The children loved this lesson, although the classroom was a bit pongy for a little while.
In geography, by looking at physical and human features of the four countries of the UK, we have been able to discuss their similarities and differences. By making a postcard for each of the four countries, the children have identified landmarks, flags, native languages and fantastic facts.
Well done Egypt class!
