As you know we have been learning about whirling hurricanes, swirling blizzards, crashing thunder and floods that are deep enough to cover up a house! This afternoon we made collage pictures to represent each type of weather. Can you guess which each picture is?
On Wednesday we all had a wonderful trip to Christchurch Park. The weather was kind to us and the rain held off! The children were VERY excited! During our visit we explored the playground and used real compasses to find out which direction we were walking in. They were very tricky to use and the arrows kept wobbling but we didn't give up! Then we collected sticks, leaves and other bit and pieces we found on the ground to make 'leaf art' pictures. We think we saw Stick Man's Family tree so some of us made Stick Men pictures too! The children all behaved beautifully and I felt very proud of them all! Well done 2D! What an exciting visit we had!
We have been learning our 2 times table. Sometimes we sing along to Percy Parker on the whiteboard! He says "Raise your hands in the air and count in 2s"! Here we are joining in! How many arms in 3 x 2 pairs? How many arms in 6 times 2? How many in 12 x 2? We counted our arms to help us find out!
Can you make a fact family to match a calculation?
Can you think of any facts starting with the equals sign? We have a story to help us remember! How about if Granny and Granddad come to visit?
7 = 2 + 5
7 = 5 + 2
and trickiest of all ..... (Auntie and Uncle come for tea but they want a TAKE AWAY!)
2 = 7 - 5
5 = 7 - 2
Children you will have to explain to your grown ups how this story helps us remember how to make fact families!
First of all a great big well done to all the children for a wonderful assembly! I felt very proud of you all. I am sure your grown ups will agree with me too!
In science we have been learning about our skeletons and our muscles. We had to complete challenge!
It was VERY tricky but we loved the challenge! Can you remember how we managed to pick up the bricks?
We have been been challenging ourselves in maths!
How many different ways can you show how to make a number?
We have also been playing this game. It's great fun!
Have a try at home! Can you beat the shark?
Welcome to the 2D blog! We have been having a wonderful time already and the children are settling down beautifully. Keep checking the blog for weekly updates.
Thank you to all of you who came to our Meet the Teacher meeting this afternoon. I look forward to meeting you all again soon as we support your children throughout the year. Remember any queries however small they may seem - feel free to come and talk to me. We want your children to be happy and confident at school. The information slide show from the meeting is attached below.
PLEASE REMEMBER to return all photo and ICT permission forms asap.
We had an absolutely wonderful day at Southwold! The children had huge smiles on their faces all day and were impeccably behaved!
A passer-by even said to Mrs Aristidou..."What wonderfully smart children!" We felt very proud.
Here are some photos of our day - we especially liked the puppet stand at the end of the pier!!
