What a brilliant start to the year!!
Year 2 have studied "We are Waltham Forest" project, hooked by the question "Where in the world are we?". We went on a lovely walk of the local area which included Memorial Park and Chingford Mount. Once back in the class room we looked at what the area has to offer and what improvements we could make. We also explored the physical and human features that we saw on our walk and created a beautiful display in our classrooms. Come and take a look!
In English we studied 'The Dark' by Lemony Snicket and learnt that the dark is nothing to be afraid of. We looked at the positive effects the dark can have on our lives like; being able to see the fireworks, saving energy for our planet and being able to close our eyes at night. Our final outcome was to re-write the story in our own words, we did a fantastic job of this.
Our focus in Maths has been on addition, subtraction and shapes. We improved our mental recall of number facts as well as creating our own pictures out of shapes. We have a top tip for counting properties of 3D shapes, use plasticine to help you remember which properties you have counted.
We hope to do even more fantastic learning next half term.
