A fabulous well done to all of our Mathematicians of the Week from Autumn 1. You have all made a brilliant start to Y2.
In science, we have been busy learning about lifecycles and we enjoyed it so much that Miss Varley set us a task and we used TASC to help us to do this.
Task: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding about the life cycle of a butterfly.
Here is what we did:
We were so proud of each other for the work that we had completed that we invited Onyx class to come and have a look as we know that they have been learning about life cycles as well.
We even displayed our work in the classroom for our adults to see in a morning when they came into the classroom.
We are proud to announce that these superstars were our final winners of the Summer term. Well done to everyone who has won this award throughout the year. Keep up the hard work in Y3 with Mrs Weet!
Here are our final Mathematicians of the Week for the Summer term.
Well done to everyone who has won throughout the year, your maths learning has been phenomenal and everyone is super proud of you.
This week, some of Y2 were invited to an athletics event run by some students from SHU at Ponds Forge. We set off on the tram and couldn’t wait to get started. Lots of other local schools had been invited too! Once everyone has arrived, we made a start.
We completed lots of different events to practise our skills. We even had a go at some brand new activities too! Javelin was definitely one of our favourite activities of the morning.
At the end of the morning, we found out who had taken 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
We were so pleased to hear that Prince Edward had come into 2nd place! We are very proud of ourselves and we can’t wait for the next invitation to join in with more sporting activities.
This half term, we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. To finish off our learning about the Great Fire of London, we used TASC to put all of our learning to good use.
In TASC, there are 8 different steps we have to follow.
The second step is to identify at the task:
Make an artefact that would have been around in 1666.
The third step is to think about all of the different ideas we could make linked to the task.
The fourth step is to decide what we wanted to make as our artefact. This gave us the chance to do whatever we wanted to make.
The fifth step has got to be our favourite step: LET’S MAKE IT! These are some of our finished projects.
The sixth step is to evaluate the projects we had completed. We worked together to give each other two stars and a wish.
The seventh step is to communicate and show all of our hard work to someone else. We invited Ruby class into our classroom so that we could showcase our projects. They invited us into their classroom too so we could see what they had been busy making too!
The eighth and final step is to think about what we have learnt over the week. We have had a lot of fun being able to put our creative skills to good use and it has been fun working with different friends to create our projects. We can’t wait for the next time we complete TASC! Miss Varley has even said that we can burn our houses after half term, just like the real Great Fire of London.
As everyone had worked so hard, we sat down at the end of the week and ate the delicious bread that had been made – this was definitely our highlight of the entire week! Yum!
Congratulations to our these Mathematicians of the Week winners! Your confidence is growing all of the time in maths! Fantastic effort, keep it up!
