Whole School Maths Challenge
We used our problem solving brains to take part in the whole school maths challenge set by Miss Marsden. Working with a partner, we used our awesome addition skills to find the missing numbers in the sudoku style puzzle. Great problem solving and teamwork Dahl Class!
This week we started reading our new class text 'Paper Planes' by Jim Helmore. As part of our English lesson, we had to follow some instructions to make a paper plane. We needed to read each instruction carefully and use accurate folding skills to make our planes. Lots of us added colour and designs to our planes using the creative area - some of us even modified their design! After lunch, we headed outside to fly them and after a few practice runs it was time for the whole class challenge. Whose plane would fly the furthest?
Our first week using Year 2 provision
We have all thoroughly enjoyed exploring the new areas of provision in our classroom this week. There has been some fabulous designing and building in the construction area, shape pictures and games in the maths area, a range of fantastic habitats created in the enquiry area, master pieces in the creative area including post bags and our own characters and lots of postcards, letters, invitations and books created in the writing area. It is fantastic to see the children so proud of their work. Some children shared the books they had created with the class at story time. Keep up the amazing work!
