We have been practising adding and subtracting with 2-digit numbers this week. Kemena and Polina have made a great start to the term by applying themselves to the challenge and thinking carefully through each step. Well done!
Have a look at how we exchange ten ones for one ten when adding.
Here is how we exchange one ten for ten ones to help with subtracting.
Next week we will be learning… about division as sharing into equal groups.
Class 2 have been working hard this week creating Christmas gifts for their families, including pop-up cards, salt-dough decorations and these wonderful Christmassy acrostic poems! We hope you enjoy them!
This term in DT, Class 2 have been designing playgrounds and making their own models out of a variety of materials. Martha and Hazel both thought really carefully about how to construct their models to make them stable and included lots of creative ideas. Well done!
This term in geography, class 2 have been learning about the location and climates of the seven continents of the world. Joni and Alpha both did an excellent job of comparing the landscape and climate of Lesotho in Southern Africa to that of Iceland in Europe. They included lots of specific geographical vocabulary in their work.
At the CLC, Class 2 used Google Earth to discover landmarks around London, then learnt how to take a screenshot to include their favourite places in a Comic Life presentation.

During Spanish Day, Class 2 learnt to count to ten and worked out some simple sums in Spanish. Then we learnt some basic greetings. After enjoying a Spanish-themed lunch, we created some art inspired by Joan Miro and learnt some Spanish songs.
Well done to Noella and Rory whose artwork was particularly detailed and thoughtful, including lots of the shapes and patterns that Miro enjoyed using.
Next week we will be learning: to use apostrophes for contraction in English, and to find totals of money in maths.
This week in maths, Class 2 have been learning to add two digit numbers using different strategies. The class have applied themselves brilliantly to their learning and faced new challenges thoughtfully.

Class 2, which strategies are your favourites?
Can you teach someone else how to do it?
Next week we will be learning… how to subtract two-digit numbers from two-digit numbers, including crossing ten.
