Year 2 goes to Carnival…

This week we learned a lot about the Carnival in Rio through our story Steve Goes To Carnival. This ended with us writing a descriptive recount. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks1-ks2-how-to-write-a-recount/z7dg92p In...

In maths we looked at different types of measurement and learned to compare these as well as to estimate using cm/m.

Wednesday independent

In science, we continued learning about food chains with our creative interpretation of this. We acted out a food chain focusing on the transfer of energy from the sun.

In PE, we have been exploring patterns in Carnival and moving to samba music. Here is a video to practise some moves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-Q6p2rwu1o

Next week we will be starting our 2 weeks Carnival STEAM learning. We will be exploring patterns in nature through different practical activities. We will also be writing poems and taking part in creative activities.
