Summer Term 1 - Week 5

Week 5

This week we have been doing lots of retrieval activities of the learning we have covered so far this term.  We have recapped how to turn verbs into the past tense by adding the suffix -ed with the Year 2s remembering to double the consonant before adding -ed if the verb follows the 1:1:1 rule (1 syllable, 1 vowel and 1 consonant).

We recapped names of common British trees and identified them using their leaves.  We then created artwork by doing leaf rubbings. We have also got very good at identifying names of trees when on the playground.

In DT this week we began to make our watering devices.  We worked on our resilience and evaluated our watering devices whilst making them, making appropriate changes of tools and materials. 

In P.S.H.E this week we have been discussing the difference between saving and spending money.  We talked about what might influence us to buy things and whether we should spend or save.
