Praa Sands Class

Welcome to Praa Sands Class. We are Year 2 and our teacher is Mrs Rusga.
Praa Sands learning Spring Term 2020
We will be following our whole school topic of Technology this term. We found a preferred definition of the word 'technology'  as follows:" science or knowledge put into practical use to solve problems or invent useful tools. A class conversation with Rosemullion Class raised two main questions:
"Are all inventions good?"              "What would the world be like without plastic?"
Maths first half: Using multiplication and division to solve problems, including money and time.

Maths second half: Number sense and place value, including measuring length, mass and capacity.

After half term

Maths first half: Using addition and subtraction to solve problems including money.

Children will be learning how to read, write and interpret texts including recounts, instruction texts, narratives, poetry, diagrams and labelling and non-chronological reports.
