Could it be true that Miss Allen is filling balloons with water for a maths investigation tomorrow???
It could only be OUTDOOR LEARNING TIME!

Les Grenouilles are making the most of the good weather… What ​​fantastic outside learning today.
First a Maths lessons comparing and reasoning about mass and then making a den at break time to use during English.
We LOVE outdoor learning. Long may this beautiful weather continue!
**Please remind your children to bring their hats and sun cream to school**

We have been working so hard in Science to learn about being healthy. We used what we had learnt, to design and make a healthy pizza and then wrote about how great it was.

Today we investigated a triangle problem. We had to use the numbers 1-6 to make sides of a triangle add up to specific numbers. We used the method of trial and improvement until we found the answers.
 
Afterwards we looked at our completed triangles and then looked for patterns and relationships in the numbers.

Year 2 have been challenging themselves this week by marking their own work.
They used a highlighter and a green pen to record what they had done well. Some children even gave themselves a target for next time!

My children just don’t believe me when I tell them I am meeting and sharing their work with real poets…
So…
Guess who Miss Allen has been learning about poetry from?
 
Roger McGough!  Such an inspiration.

Year 2 spent a wonderful day with our visitors, Annette and Janine, learning all about Basant, the Punjabi kite festival which takes place in February every year. 
 
We listened to a story about some children in Pakistan who solved a riddle, before writing our very own stumpers about animals.  We also had a fantastic drama session, where we worked in groups to become different animal, imagining how they could rescue a trapped kite.
 
In the afternoon, we crafted our own kites out of silk paper and thin bamboo.  We printed the fabric using inks, rollers and stamps.  You will be able to see them on display in our beautiful new corridor very soon!  We can’t wait to see them fluttering in the wind!

We have been learning about 2 artists. Marc Broadway and Georges Seurat. 

We have looked at a few of their paintings and started to use their techniques to create our own pictures. Miss Allen has been creating artwork like us too!

Les Grenouilles had lots of fun in the snow on Friday! (even if we did have cold fingers and had to get into our PE kits for the afternoon! 🙂 )

We hope we get the change to play in the snow again soon!

Year 2 have been working really hard in English to use contractions in their writing. We have learnt how to change ‘that is’ to ‘that’s’, ‘it is’ to ‘it’s’  and ‘can not’ to ‘can’t’.
You might want to practise writing these in sentences at home!

Today we had a Party Ring Café and lots of grown-ups came to help us find patterns in the problem we were given. We noticed lots of patterns and discussed their relationships.

We have used Numicon and cubes to help us make number sentences that are equal.

We are working really hard to explore numbers.

We have looked at how addition means we combine 2 sets of objects to make a total. Some of us even began thinking about working systematically to help us be more efficient.
 
We have also been using our reasoning skills.
Miss Allen was thinking of a number and she gave us clues so we could guess what it was.
Then we had a go at choosing a number ourselves and writing clues for it to challenge our friends!
