Our Learning in Year 2/3

Our Maths topic is number. We have been learning about place value, 2 and 3 digit numbers, patterns in numbers and using greater than and less than signs. This week, Year Two children have been using a range of equipment to continue number patterns.

In science, we have been investigating properties of rocks. We tested permeability, density and how hard wearing the rocks are.

We have also been learning about how rocks are formed and now know the three types of rocks: Igneous rocks, Sedimentary rocks and metamorphic rocks.

Our Art topic is watercolour. We have really enjoyed experimenting with watercolours and how they mix on a colour wheel. We will be moving on to blending colours in our own sunset pictures, as well as linking our work to famous artists.
