  4. Rumble in the Jungle – Performance Poetry – Part 1

    July 1, 2016 by Miss Hathaway

    We are currently reading the story ‘One day on our blue planet – in the savannah’ This is part of our topic on Africa. We decided to learn the poem ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ but first we had to pick out the animals that would be found in Africa! We know that these animals are found on the savannah and not in the jungle, but poetry is allowed to break all the rules!

  8. #Liverpoolmathsparty meets #blogtheeuros

    June 17, 2016 by Miss Hathaway

    Today was a city wide maths day  #Liverpoolmathsparty

    In Year 2 we decided to link our maths work to our #BlogTheEuros country ‘Spain.’

    The children made their own Super Top Trump cards and played against one another to win a Euro 2016 themed game! We applied our knowledge of place value, measure and money and found out that some players were much more valuable on a Super Top Trumps card than others.

    Next up was creating Spanish themed bunting. The children researched how to count to 30 in Spanish and then made their own bunting number lines to decorate the classroom with.

    We ended the day with some Spanish addition, we used the numbers we had researched earlier to create number sentences and found the answers in Spanish too!

    We had a great day!

  31. Discovering Spain

    June 9, 2016 by Miss Hathaway

    Today we looked up where Spain was in the world. We used globes, maps and atlases to discover that Spain was in Europe just like the United Kingdom.

    Lots of children thought that Spain was on the other side of the world and were surprised to see it wasn’t too far away compared to other countries like Australia.

    We used a colour coded key to label the U.K and Spain.

    We also shared some of our prior knowledge with each other too.

    Keep your eyes peeled on the blog as the children will hopefully be posting a lot over the next few days.
