The children have chosen the homework this week!
All of it is on PurpleMash.
Why should YOU be King or Queen of the classroom?
We have sent home a new fluency text - My Teacher.
Year 2 - Garnet Class - Mr Nelson
Another great week in Year 2!
This week we had lots of fun learning how to solve missing number problems. We used all 4 of the operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We had to use the inverse to discover the missing number. So if we had __ + 5 = 10, you need to do the inverse like 10 - 5 = __ to get the answer. We did much harder questions than that though!
This week our focus was on persuasive writing. After spending a bit of time defining and looking at what persuasive language is, we worked towards writing a letter with the intention to persuade. We used the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit' as our inspiration. We took on the role of an item found in our classroom, like a glue stick, and after thinking about how poorly we are treated in class wrote a letter to persuade the children to treat us better.
We enjoyed Friday afternoon learning a little about the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We did lot of different activities to celebrate the special occasion.
In RE we looked at the story of the Good Samaritan. It is called a parable - this is a story that tries to tell an important message. We thought this story was trying to teach us to be kind to other people, and treat them how we would like to be treated.
We researched mini beasts in the computer suite, and used this knowledge to create our own fact files.
