This week in English we have been learning to use sequence sentences and have been writing our own versions of the Pirate Cruncher by Jonny Duddle to do this. The children have also been remembering to use expanded noun phrases and have worked very hard on their stories.
In Numeracy we have continued to consolidate our understanding of place value. Year 1s have been learning to compare numbers using the words more than, less than and equal to. Year 2s have been learning to partition numbers in different ways.
In Science we conducted an experiment to test out what materials would make a stable pirate ship. The children made pirate ships with plastic, card, paper, aluminium foil and paper and were enjoyed the experiment very much. In Geography we learnt about human and physical features.
