Kenzie and Jordan have been doing some learning games
The boys wanted to show off their pictures (I’ve attached the blanks incase any other the St Oswald’s children wanted to colour them in too). The boys love seeing pictures of all the rainbows but also wanted to show our postman and bin men some appreciation in these uncertain times too!
Busy morning in the swift house this morning
Miss McKeown has been making the most of the lovely weather and allocated exercise time. We’re enjoying our time walking Buster and taking the gym outdoors! Missing you all!
Thought I would send this as the boys are so happy to draw a rainbow for the positive life and safety for everyone wishing Everyone a safe life x
Year 2 had a wonderful afternoon preparing afternoon tea for the staff in the kitchen. We are thankful for the delicious meals they cook for us and we just wanted to say thank you!
On Tuesday 4th February 2020 Year 2 discussed Queen Victoria and her significance. In groups we used photographs to identify what changes occurred during her reign and then evaluated what life would be like without these. We identified what Queen Victoria was like, her appearance and her role as leader of the British Empire. Miss McKeown has been really impressed with Year 2’s enthusiasm towards their learning in History and how they continue to develop their vocabulary.
This morning Year 2 had a busy morning completing a range of maths activities to strengthen our knowledge and understanding of fractions. We used pizzas, cakes and biscuits to connect fractions with sharing equally, finding halves and quarters of each food. We played pairs, matching fractions to shapes as well as reading fractions when rolling dice. Blue group were counting in fractions and placing fractions onto number lines as well solving problems involving fractions.
