Primary 2 Week in review

This has been yet another busy week in Primary 2! We have been reviewing our money topic this week and really thinking about giving change and adding up money before we move on to more of a numeracy focus.

We continue with our spelling work – looking at adding ‘ing‘ to the end of words when we double the consonant (such as sit + ing becoming sitting). We practised this pattern in class and used some of the free games on spellzone.com to help – https://www.spellzone.com/word_lists/list-568578.htm

Here’s some of our handwriting and tricky word work from this week!

We read and discussed If I Were a Hawk by Clare Bevan (which you can find assigned in your Active Learn) and we will continue to look at this next week.

Here are some super pictures we made as part of our exploration of the poem:

As part of our Living Things work we really enjoyed looking at the life cycles of butterflies and frogs. The children were keen to share these videos we watched about them!

We went on to show the life cycles of either a frog or a butterfly on a paper plate, though lots of us were keen to do both!

We looked at This is How a Tadpole Transforms into a Frog and Watch This Caterpillar Turn Into A Chinese Luna Moth as sped-up, real examples of the life cycles we had been looking at.

We’ve also been thinking about how we look after living things, starting with plants.

And we planted our very own radish seeds to look after on Wednesday! Our other plants from the other week are growing well too and we look forward to seeing how our radishes do.

The children also absolutely loved the following video on this link and insisted we share it!

Have a lovely weekend and we will see you next week!
