Sharing

This week in class 2 have been learning how to share. We already know how to half into two groups, so we used what we know to help us share.
We know that when we share into groups, the amount in each group must be equal, this way it is fair.
We have shared into groups of 2, 3, 4 and even 5!
We have shared dragon sweets out between 4 dragons and we have shared objects fairly between our friends.
Excellent sharing class 2!

3D Shapes!

This week Class 2 have been learning about 3D shapes, we have named them, described their properties and went on 3D shape hunt in our outdoor area. The children are able to name the 3D shapes as well as discuss and compare their corners, sides and faces.

Castles!

Our new topic in reception is castles. This week we have been learning all about castles and discussing people from our past.
The children love our new castle role play area where they can act out the characters who live in a castle.


The children have been labeling the various parts of a castle.

Captain Jack

What a fantastic afternoon Class 2 have had! Captain Jack came to visit us. We learnt all about the life as a pirate and then played lots of pirate games. The children had so much fun. Leon P said “this is the best day of my life”.

Thank you Captain Jack!

This week in Class 2 we have been learning how to read and make ‘half past’ times. We talked about the bug pointer going on the six and the little pointer going half way past the number.
We also had a go at working out one hour before and after.

What time is it?

This week in class 2 we have been learning how to tell the time, we have learnt how to read and make o clock times. We know that when it is o’ clock the big pointer must be on the 12. We also learnt what time we do important events in our day, for example at 7 o’ clock we get up, at 9’o clock we come to school, at 12 o’ clock we have our lunch and at 3 o’ clock we go home.
The children were so good at reading o’ clock times that we moved onto one hour before and one hour after. Some of the children could make 2 hours before and 2 hours after. Super time telling, class 2!

Hundred Square Counting!

This week we have been learning how to add and subtract using a hundred squure. We learnt how we must count forwards when we add and the number gets bigger, and when we subtract we count backwards and the number gets smaller. Some children could add and subtract double digit numbers.
SUPER maths Class 2!

Estimation Station

This week we have been learning how to estimate, we learnt that estimating is a posh word for a guess. We also learnt how our estimations must be sensible.
We now have an estimation station in our classroom where the children can estimate how many objects there are and record it. They are really enjoying the Estimation Station.
