Our Learning- Autumn 2

Autumn 2 - Week 3 

 

Penguin Class have had another wonderful week of exciting learning. 

In history, we have started to learn about another major event that happened in the 1600's - The Great Plague. The children used artwork to look for clues to tell us about the plague. We discussed why red crosses were placed on people's front doors and why the plague doctor's wore masks. In Geography, we have continued to learn about our magnificent capital city! We have been locating and describing London's famous landmarks and answered riddles and clues about each of the landmarks. We used Google Maps and aerial images of London to spot many of the landmarks we learnt about. 

 

In Maths, we have been practising and consolidating efficient methods to add and subtract 2-digit numbers. We have learnt that sometimes when subtracting there may not be enough ones so we may have to exchange 1 ten for 10 ones! We have also worked hard on drawing base ten to help us answer calculations and solve addition and subtraction word problems. 

 

This week across Beauclerc, we have been discussing Anti-Bullying Week. This years theme and message was 'Reach Out'. We discussed how we can reach out and who we can reach out to. We discovered that we can reach out in many ways, by noticing bullying, talking, supporting, checking in and respecting others. 

 

Have a lovely weekend ! 

Autumn 2 - Week 2 

 

This week in Whale Class, the children received a very important letter from the felt tip pens at Beauclerc - they have decided to quit! In the letter they said that they are tired of being overworked, dried up and left without lids. As a result of this, we have been looking features of a persuasive letter so we can write to them and persuade them to come back! 

 

We have really enjoyed continuing to learn about the Gunpowder Plot in History this week. The children wrote a diary entry pretending to be Guy Fawkes and explained what had happened, how they were feeling and whether or not they regretted their decision. The children continued their creative work as they made some beautiful watercolour paintings of poppies in art as they learnt about Remembrance Day. 

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Autumn 2 - Week 1 

 

What an amazing week we have had back at school! The children have settled back into school quickly, remembering old routines and picking up some new changes too! 

 

This week, we have started our new big question 'How has history shaped our capital city?'. We started the week by discovering some strange clues in the hall. We found a gunpowder barrel, a picture of a man with a very fancy moustache and an amazing hat and an old calendar with November 5th circled. Penguin Class were fantastic detectives and discussed how these clues link to the Gunpowder Plot, they loved sharing what they had learnt over the half term! 

So far, we have learnt about why the Gunpowder Plot happened and what happened during the plot. Next week, we will be finding out what happened to Guy Fawkes after he was discovered in the cellar of the Houses of Parliament.

 

In maths, we have continued our addition and subtraction learning. We have worked really hard on finding a method to help us with subtracting a one-digit number from a two-digit number, where we need to cross 10. The children first used base ten, they discovered that sometimes we don't have enough ones! So, we swap a ten stick for 10 ones, then we can take away. We have also used number lines. We have focussed on making our number lines neat, so we can see our working out! The Year 2 team would love for your children to practise their counting backwards skills and methods of subtracting. 

Lots of our children have discussed how they will be watching firework displays this weekend. We discussed and looked at firework and bonfire safety. We used the Firework Code to learn about how we can be safe around fireworks. We wrote our top tips onto and created some firework art. 

Have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to hearing all about your firework displays!
