Spring 2 Stone Bay Exploring Comparing Numbers and Objects

Today in Year Two we have practised reading different types of scales.  We have measured capacity, length, weight and force.  We have discussed:  M cm mms kgs g  ml L  and even N.  It was fun and we were really good at it too!

Reading Scales in Maths

Spring 2

The Story Machine

 

Today the children looked at two different typewriters and whilst they were able to say what they are used for they did not know what they were called.  The children were very excited to find out a little bit of history about one of the typewriters.  After reading 'The Story Machine' the children had a go at typing their name.  Ella even wrote her own story on the typewriter with a little help from Mrs Williams.

KS1 Florence Nightingale Workshop

 

Today the children were visited by Florence Nightingale who shared her experiences of working in the Scutari Hospital during the Crimea War. The children then acted out some of these experiences. The children had the chance to ask and answer questions in role of a nurse or a soldier. The children also learnt about the work of Mary Seacole and why it is so important to also remember her today.

World Book Day

 

After reading the story 'Not a stick' the children in Stone Bay collected their own stick and used their imagination like the character in the book to turn it into something else.  We had sticks turned into boats, a digger, cars, a wand and even a lipstick.  The children followed the pattern in the story to write their own sentences based on their pictures.  Take a look at the children's work.

World Book Day

The children have been learning about  how  we can celebrate with Jesus during Mass on a Sunday just as his disciples did at the Last Supper. They re-enacted Jesus' words at the Last Supper and then how the priest, during  Mass, repeats Jesus' words and everyone comes together to celebrate.

Year 2 have been learning about the Last Supper and Mass.

Having Fun in KS1

Stone Bay have been learning about Florence Nightingale, as part of this some of the children dressed up in a Florence Nightingale costume, hospitals have been built both in the construction area and outside area.

Colour Poems

 

The children in Stone Bay have been writing colour poems and creating colour collages.  Take a look at their work that is displayed outside the classroom.  It is fantastic to see the children applying their sounds knowledge when spelling unknown words.

Another busy week in Stone Bay

 

So much learning and fun has taken place this week, a talk about fire safety, learning about doubles and halves, enjoying the new mud kitchen, lots of building in the construction area as well as so much more!

Enquiry Time in Stone Bay

 

The children have been busy creating their own hospital in the outside area after learning about Florence Nightingale, using the mud kitchen to make medicine and showing their knowledge of number bonds using paper chains.  Another busy week full of learning opportunities!
