In Class 2 we are learning about addition and subtraction in Maths, where Year 2's are working with numbers up to 100, and Year 3's are working with numbers up to 1000! We are also working really hard to develop our rapid recall of our times tables. To practise all your maths skills through lots of exciting games, have a go on Sumdog at home.

In English, we have been getting very excited about describing the sly, evil villain Cruella De Vil! We have been writing some expanded noun phrases and adverbs of manner to describe her as a character, here are some of our favorites that we have written in Class 2:
'Cruella De Vil is wearing a coal black and winter white coat.'
'Cruella De Vil has sharp, pointy shoes on her feet.'
'She is wearing a ruby red, silky dress.'
'Her emerald green, crystal earrings were sparkling.'
'Cruella De Vil rudely ignored her employees.'
'Cruella De Vil slowly walked up the cold, grey stony steps with her black and white furry coat dragging on the floor behind her.'
A special mention to these pupils who put in a great effort while writing their paragraph describing Cruella De Vil: Harley, Joseph M, Lyra, Una, Alex, Haytham, Isaac, Flick, Dexter, Evie, Erin, Oscar, Mason and Jessie! Well done!
