October is the month of the year when we especially remember black people who have made a significant contribution to society throughout the years. In Year 2 we have been focusing in particular on the life of Rosa Parks who became well-known for her protest against segregation and unfair treatment of black people in America during the 1950s.

This week Year 2 have been working with 2 digit numbers to find one more or one less than a given number.

We have been playing games to help us learn.

In one game we had to use a 0 to 9 die to create a 2 digit number, then we found one less or one more than this number.

We also played a matching pairs game. We had to turn over two cards and if they were one more or one less than each other we could keep the pair. The person with the most pairs was the winner.

We all really enjoyed the story. Mr Wroe has had his story published and all profits from his book will be used to support vulnerable children.

In our Bee Active lesson this week we were practising our throwing and catching skills. At first we practised throwing our beanbags into the air and catching with both hands. Then Corey gave us challenges such as catching with one hand and then throwing, clapping our hands and then catching. Afterwards we played a target game. We had to work in pairs and try to strike our partners marker cones to win them for ourselves. We had lots of fun and the lovely sunny day made it even more enjoyable!
