Welcome to Year 2!
Year 2 have had SO much fun in 'Sports Week'. Check out our photos from the week!
The children are really enjoying our final book of Year 2. It tells the story of Orion who is very scared of a lot of things, but most of all he's scared of the dark. So one night, the Dark decides to visit and take Orion on an adventure.
We have created some scenes between Orion and his mum to show what we are saying, compared to what we are actually thinking and produced creative dances to demonstrate how Orion felt about the 'Dark' at the beginning of the story compared to the end.
Non- Chronological Reports
Recently, the children were tasked with creating a non-chronological report about any animal of their choice for homework. I was astounded by the high standard and quality of the texts the children produced. They look incredible and are currently on display in the library for all classes to see.
What does a plant need to survive?
In our investigation we changed the variable of each plant.
Plant 1: water, light, warmth
Plant 2: light and warmth
Plant 3: water and warmth
Plant 4: light and water
Year 2 were so thrilled that they decided to name the plants. Plant 1- Sunshine, Plant 2- Johnny, Plant 3- Tulip and Plant 4- Linda.
Check out the pictures below to see how each of the plants got on in the investigation.
Make sure to ask Year 2 "What do plants need to survive?"
Who knew fractions could be so fun! This week we have focused on unit and non-unit fractions and finding 1/2, 1/4, and 1/3 of shapes and amounts. We can use fractions in so many different contexts (we even created some fraction pizzas). Check out our photos below!
This week in English we have performed a poem using intonation and actions. In our groups we independently created our performance and used communication to work together.
Our maths focus has been recapping our online learning and we have had lots of fun taking part in a quiz.
In History we created a revision mind map about the War of the Roses and Henry VIII.
Today we opened the 'Year 2 Toy Shop'. We have been learning all about the different value of coins and notes and how to make amounts in lots of different ways. We have used <> and = to compare amounts of money and challenging ourselves with lots of reasoning and problem solving questions!
Today we used addition and subtraction to buy toys from the shop; taking it in turns to be the shop keeper. We had a lot of fun!
Stefan said the toy shop was "Awesome!"
Willow said "It helped me with my counting!"
Molly said "It helped me to recognise the coins"
We had a fantastic morning!
Mr Penguin is a very busy man, who spends a lot of time outside. He asked Year 2 which material would be best to use for a waterproof coat, now that it is winter and he needs to stay dry! Year 2 had to set up the experiment, explain their method and make a prediction. We needed to make it a fair test, so we kept the containers and the amount of water the same, but changed the type of material.
Which material do you think would be best for a waterproof coat?
Year 2 have been very busy this week! We started our new class story 'Lila and the Secret of Rain' the children have been captivated by this story since the first reading! We have been mapping Lila's emotions and creating thought bubbles; we explored new ways to find vocabulary and improve words by using a thesaurus and we even became teachers by correcting past tense in a piece of writing. Next week, we will be writing our own diary!
In Science we went on a tree hunt around school and found Oak trees and a Silver Birch! We know how to describe trees by using the vocabulary: deciduous and evergreen.
We have been doing lots of balancing in PE and learning new ways to strengthen our core muscles. Take a look at our fantastic balancing photos below!
