Another wonderful week in Willow Class…
In PE we’ve been perfecting our passing skills! We took on lots of challenges that involved practising under-arm and over-arm throws.
In Maths we’ve continued our learning on adding 2-digit numbers when an exchange is needed. Can your child tell you when and why we have to exchange 10 ones for 1 ten?
In English we are finishing our non-fiction unit by writing our own information texts about an amazing role models. The children have chosen between Wilma Rudolph, Katherine Johnson or Alma Thomas. On Thursday we hooked our brains into the learning by making medals for Wilma the Olympian, directing ‘rockets’ like Katherine and making colourful collages like Alma!
In Science we explored different materials and spoke about their properties. We recapped old Year 1 words like hard, soft and smooth and then learnt some new words like transparent, opaque and brittle.
This week’s Merit superstar winners:
Isaiah for moving up 6 reading book bands since September! Isaiah reads so much at home and always uses his phonics learning to try out trickier words. Because he is such an amazing reader, his writing is improving loads too!
Aila has been trying super hard all week, especially in Science and English. Amazing effort in challenging herself to always make every piece of work better than the last and using words like ‘translucent’ to describe objects!
Have a nice weekend,
