We had an amazing virtual reading group today 👍🏻😀 Can you guess what our story was about? We read Goldilocks and the clever plan – making predictions and answering bug questions just like this one. Have you read any books online this week?
Today we went live with bar modelling 👍🏻 We used our fact families, making addition and subtraction numbest sentences. We counted in 1’s and 10’s, making numbers to 100 and did lots of work on our whiteboards as we went along. We may not be in our classroom today, but we can still show off […]
We have been exploring examples of Asian poetry in 2WB. Poetry has included storytelling, shape poems, Haiku, rhymes and even nonsense. We have been thinking about what we like and using our oracy skills to justify our opinions. Here are some examples: Alexie Oracy Amelia Oracy Darcie Oracy Eliza Oracy Khalifa Oracy Kieran Oracy a […]
Today in art we had a go at sketching and copying tone. We had a variety of animals and styles to choose from and used these to practice our pencil control. Which animal would you have chosen?

We agreed that paper and paperclips could make a boat and we could test the strength using marbles. To make […]
