UKS2 Learning Gallery
Autumn Term One
UKS2 have completely hit the ground running since September. All the adults and children have completely embraced our Co-Jo RESPECT Code and are working really hard to use:
These are just a couple of photos from our Co-Jo sessions
In maths this half term, we have been learning about place value. The children have taken part in lots of different activities, including games, rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 100,000 and 1,000,000. The children particularly enjoyed the place value games.
In English, we have been writing suspense narratives. We have learnt a lot about prepositional phrases and Tell E-e sentences and how we could use them to add effort and emotion to our writing. Here just two examples of the excellent setting and descriptions we wrote and revised.
Our Big Idea for Science is ‘Brutal Beas or Cuddly Creatures?’ So far we have classified mammals and learnt about other types of animals. Included in this, we have been learning about owls and had a fantastic visit.
Our creative curriculum Big Idea is ‘Can you design and make a castle?’! As part of this, we have done lots of research about castles and started to design our own. We also looked at different shields that people might have used in them and used our teamwork skills to create these fantastic shields.
