Today we began our new Maths topic ‘length’. We know that length means how long something is from one end to the other.
In our lesson, we used the words: less than, more than, shorter, longer, one metre, height.
We used the metre rulers to find objects in our classroom that are less than one metre, more than one metre and about one metre.
What objects can you find in your house that are about one metre?
Over the last couple of weeks we have enjoyed exploring a program called Kodable.
Today, we have been using forward, back, left and right to move Fuzz in the correct direction.
The children have access to this at home using our school ID.
We had lots of fun making our own vegetable curry today. We worked collaboratively to prepare the vegetables. We practised our peeling, cutting and grating skills. We have some budding chefs in 2ES!
The best part, I’m sure everyone would agree, was sampling our curry with some rice. It was definitely a thumbs up from us all!
In our PSHE, we thought about how we are all unique and special. We thought about how we are all unique and special. We thoughts about how we are different from one another and why this is such as good thing.
We then shared one thing that we are good at or proud of before giving a compliment to somebody else.
After learning about some of the traditional foods eaten in India, Benjamin had great fun at home yesterday making naan bread. He worked like a Team Ant with his mummy and very kindly brought us in some to try. It was very yummy.
After Eric crash landed his spaceship in our playground at the beginning of September, we have spent a lot of time figuring out where the map he left behind is of. The map showed a place called Leodis and we have since found out that this is what Leeds used to be called.
We enjoyed going into Leeds City Centre yesterday so we could see in person some of the buildings we have learnt about.
Our first stop was Leeds City Museum. Here we found out that it was designed by a famous architect called Cuthbert Broderick. We later found out that he also designed Leeds a Town Hall and the Corn Exchange.
We enjoyed going into the museum and finding out more about what life in a Leeds used to be like.
After this, we sketched the outside of the building, looking carefully at Broderick’s interesting design,,,
After this, we walked to Leeds Town Hall. What a large building this is! We found out that Broderick won a competition to design this building when he was 29. We noticed that there are four lions outside and 14 pillars.
We walked to Leeds Bridge where we saw the river Aire.
We then went to the Corn Exchange where we found out what this building was used for and how it got its name.
We acted out the farmers bringing to corn to be examined by the merchants.
Thank you to those of you who came to our celebration this afternoon. It really does make it a lot more special having you there to share our learning. As you can see, the children have worked very hard over the fortnight and have produced some excellent pieces of work.
We have all enjoyed working with Mrs Walker over the fortnight to make some delicious cupcakes.
To make sure that our cupcakes yummy, it was important that we weighed out the ingredients carefully using the weighing scales. Mrs Walker explained to us that the small ‘g’ on the scales actually stands for grams. We weighed out 100g of sugar and flour. After this, we carefully cracked open two eggs and added this to our mixture.
We are looking forward to decorating these on Friday and of course, sampling them.
