Friday 11th January
Happy first week back! It has been a busy one in Indigo 2 with the highlight for most being our first swimming session!
The children have settled back into school routine really well and are really enjoying reading Cosmic, our new book. In maths, our block is multiplication and division and we have been learning how to use long multiplication, which is the preferred formal written method. Most children have mastered this for two digit x two digit and are confident enough to move on to hundreds and thousands. We are continuing with this next week and moving on to applying this skill to word problems.
In science, the children discussed why some people used to believe (some still do) that the Earth is flat, not spherical. In our geography lesson we started to learn about North and South America and the children labelled some countries and their capitals within both continents. The children have also begun to research a planet in our Solar System to prepare them for writing a fact file about it.
Have a great weekend,
Spring Term Topic
This term we are studying Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. It is about a boy called Liam who ends up getting lost in space. We will be studying this book throughout the term, until Easter. Our geography learning will be about North and South America. We will be finding out about the similarities and differences of their landscapes and countries that are within them.
