Lower Key Stage 2 wrote and presented some brilliant adverts promoting a Baltic Cruise to various capital cities from this region.
Year 3 worked well with arrays to show how this represents multiplication.
Year 4 spent time using lolly sticks to create Roman numerals. An engaging way to make this lesson memorable.
Lower KS2 had a fabulous time describing hidden objects in ‘feely bags’ to prove that light is needed to see and that darkness is the absence of light.
Lower Key Stage 2 loved this science lesson where they created ear gongs using string and coat-hangers to explore how for a sound to occur, something will have vibrated.
Lower Key stage two have loved learning more about our world. They now understand about the equator, the hemispheres and how this effects climate.
Science fun in Lower Key Stage 2. We explored changing states with ‘ice hands’ and learnt about the functions of the skeleton.
Maths fun. Exploring addition with practical resources to check we fully understand what is happening in a calculation so our written methods are not just ‘tricks’.
There are also a number of teaching websites that are now free to use for all parents and children. They contain many ideas and activities for learning across the curriculum.
