Literacy this week: 27 September

Posted on Friday 01 October 2010 by Mr Redfearn

In Literacy, the children have started to write the beginning and ending to familiar narratives. Our sentence and word level work has centred around full stops and capital letters. Once again, the site with good learning tools for these skills is the BBC. To encourage the children to think from the perspective of the characters in the narrative we have done some drama.
Evan is thought tracking Faye (playing Sam the dog), whilst Madison and Zakir take on the lead roles of Chloe and Jack.

Maths this week: 27 September

In Maths, the children this week have been working on 3-D shapes, money problems and number patterns. They will benefit from practising their money skills on this fun game on the BBC.

Here are some of the children showing how they can do some complex patterns:

Finn is on fire we this complex pattern

This is fantastic pattern Josh; almost as good as your picture pose!

Class 2’s behaviour was nothing short of exemplary, leading one of the members of the museum to comment that we were one of the best behaved schools ever to visit Abbey House.

Introductions

Posted on Friday 01 October 2010 by Mr Redfearn

Hello to all the parents and family of Year 2!

I would like to introduce myself to parents that I have not met yet, as well as informing everyone of the exciting learning that has been taking place at Moortown this week.

We have started our new topic this week, which is ‘Toybox’ as I’m sure you’re aware in relation to the trip to Abbey House (I have posted some pictures of the children outside Kirkstall Abbey).

Please see other posts to find out what we have being doing in Maths and Literacy.

Kind regards,

Mr Redfearn
