The children are really enjoying their football sessions with Liam!
To start off our new topic on The Great Fire of London, we had a look at timelines. We started by working as a team to place dates from 1600-2018 in order, after this we made our own timeline as a class, looking at key events over the last 3 years at Maidensbridge. The children enjoyed choosing special moments to put on their timeline.
We are celebrating magical maths week this week at school!
Here we are making certain amounts of money with the least amount of coins possible.
Searching for micro-habitats
In year 2 this week we have been looking at micro-habitats in science. We went down to our forest school and had a look at some of the micro-habitats we have in there. We then tallied up what creatures we found and made a pictogram!
Wow, year 2 have been working so hard at solving 2-step word problems this week in maths.
Here's an example of one that we did today- Jon had 15 marbles, he lost 4 in the classroom and then another 3 in his bag.. how many did he have left?
Happy Diwali everybody! Year 2 have been learning all about Diwali today. We have been creating Rangoli patterns and henna tattoos. The children have found out all about the story of Rama and Sita and why Diwali is known as 'The Festival of Lights'.
Over the last half term we have been working with year one to learn a new song in music called "Hands, Feet, Heart". We had the opportunity to perform this in front of the rest of the school this morning and sang it beautifully. Well done years one and two!
Year 2 made some beautiful group collages today of their favourite nurses Florence Nightingale, Edith Cavell and Mary Seacole. The children have really enjoyed our 'Nurturing Nurses' topic and have produced some wonderful work.
In science, the children have been finding out about ways to take care of our environment. We did an experient where we took two identical trays of ice, we covered one with cling film and left the other untouched. The children predicted that the uncovered tray would melt first, however, we soon realised that the tray covered with cling film was melting much faster! This is because the cling film acted in a similar way to greenhouse gasses, allowing heat to enter but not escape and therefore heating up the tray.
