Science Activities and Information
Year 2 - World Book Day 2018
Year 2 have been looking at Alice in Wonderland this term. During World Book Day they all took part in a maths morning. The morning consisted of a variety of different mathematics activities linked to the story of Alice in Wonderland. The children used their times table knowledge, added numbers together to make the biggest number, added and subtracted multiples of ten, shared food out for the tea party, measured different potion bottles and followed positional/directional instructions.
The children all made hats for the Mad Hatter and wore them at the tea party. They also followed instructions to make their potions. Their potions made them do different things for example: fly, go invisible, dance and change into animals.
We had lots of fun!
