Year 2 – The life cycle of a butterfly. 27.06.18
This afternoon Year 2 had great fun creating the life cycle of a butterfly in SOLE for our minibeasts learning journey. They wrote about it on Monday and they have enjoyed creating one of their own today. Varieties of rice and pasta was used to create the different stages.
What is the difference between Mr Quint and Miss Cleasby? What a question, what fun we had! “One wears glasses” was one of many answers!!! Not quite what we had in mind! We did actually mean the difference in height! So we set about looking at different strategies to find out the difference between two numbers. We had some problems to solve and we used resources to help us. A very busy,fun and productive lesson.
We had a visit from Mrs White who works at Plymouth university today to talk to us about how to stay safe online.
After watching a short video clip, we understood that computers and tablets and other devices can be fantastic to learn from and play games on, but we must be aware that there is the potential for us to experience images or to interact with people we don’t know.
There are some top tips that we can follow to keep safe online.
- Don’t talk to strangers online.
- Never say rude things to people online.
- Never give away personal information to others online.
- If you experience anything online that makes you feel strange, tell a trusted adult.

We watched a very entertaining video clip today to help us learn the 3 times table. It was set to ‘Uptown Funk’ and had us all dancing and singing along. Ask your child to show you what they remember.
Following on from that, we used a range of resources including 100 squares, cubes, bead strings and counters to explore the 3 times table and discover patterns. We found out that when we coloured in the squares in 3s, a diagonal pattern emerged. Further conclusions were that the pattern of numbers went odd, even, odd, even and so on. We challenged ourselves to continue the pattern of numbers and bridge 100, applying the necessary skills to count in 3s. We used different methods to demonstrate our knowledge of counting in 3s. We worked so hard and made so many fantastic mathematical discoveries that we were awarded a class point! ?
Keep practising your times tables at home.
