Yew Tree – Week 3

A very wet and windy week for Yew Tree Class this time!

In Maths, we have been exploring how to solve word problems and using counting up on a number line to subtract and find the difference. The year 2’s and the year 3’s have both worked exceptionally hard this week to apply what they know so a huge well done to you all Yew Tree!

In English, we have been Reading Detectives and working on our skills of inference. Both year groups again worked hard to find the answers they needed to a variety of different questions in the different text types and I have been blown away by the resilience and confidence the children have had to complete each activity. Yet again well done Yew Tree class!

In PE, we have been getting to grips with Zumba and visualising the movements of plants and animals through the gymnastic shapes we have learnt and in History, we learnt more about who the Vikings were and their reasons for invading. We’ve also begun our research in Geography for creating our own brochures for a holiday to Brazil. Sounds very appealing after the weather we’ve had this week too!

Finally, we had a very special event to attend on Wednesday afternoon as Chagford’s Tony celebrated his 100th birthday! We had a lovely time learning about melodicas with Miss Rowe before cheering him on as he drove past on his trip around Chagford. Happy Birthday from Yew Tree Class!

Next week, we are looking forward to beginning our Brazilian Eco Art (a letter has been sent home but is attached here: Brazil Recycling letter ), beginning a new text in English, learning more about the Viking language, micro habitats and lots more.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Best wishes,

Joe Skinner and the Year 2/3 team.
