Drama4All Workshop.

This afternoon, 2W have been lucky enough to take part in a drama workshop linked to our learning in English.  We met the Funky Fairy who asked us to help him defeat the Red Queen and rescue the Fairytale book that she had stolen!  We played games and had to pretend to be stars so that she didn’t catch us!  As we crept through the Fairytale Forest, we created and mixed potions, pretended to be different characters from well-known tales and encountered a magical chair that made us do all kinds of different things!  We all had great fun and gathered some new ideas to include in our own fairytales!

Fantastic Fruity Fractions!

This morning, in our Maths lesson, we have been learning about fractions.  We know that a fraction is a part of the whole and we have learnt that all of the parts need to be equal.  In the photos, you will see that we cut our fruit into halves and then quarters.  How many parts are there when the apple is cut into halves?  If 4 friends shared an apple, what fraction would they each receive?

Traditional Tale Detectives.

Look at what we found when we came back from lunch!  A crime scene just waiting to be discovered!  We looked carefully at the scene and were able to determine that this is something we are all familiar with … Goldilocks has been here!  We have described the scene and listened to the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  2W are currently re-telling the story.  This is the launch of our first unit of work in English; Traditional Tales.  We will be listening to lots of different stories, using drama to explore characters and themes and writing our own tales too.

New Term, New Topic – Toys and Games.

2W have already made a fantastic start to our new term and it’s only 10 o’ clock! Our exciting new topic is ‘Toys and Games’ and we are currently drawing our favourite toys and games and annotating the pictures with information.  We are writing about why the toys are our favourites, who gave them to us, what they’re made of, how we play with them, etc, etc.  Have a look at the photos to see if you can tell what we most enjoy playing with.  What is your favourite toy or game?
