Autumn 2 Week 3

Year 2 have had another busy week.

We have been investigating exercise and how it makes our bodies feel. On Thursday we completed a set of timed exercises (star jumps, sit ups, hopping and walking with a bean bag on our head) and counted how many we were able to complete in 1 minute. Our results varied between 11 and 101!!! and we were very tired and out of breath when we finished.

We have continued to look at landmarks in the United Kingdom. This week we focussed on London. Next week we will be looking at famous landmarks in Wales and Northern Ireland.

Finally, Year 2 have been thinking about our school value for this term; Aspire. We talked about what we aspire to be when we are older and what kind of person we should all aspire to be. We talked about the qualities of being a good friend, being kind, sharing and helping others. Next week we will talk about who can help us to achieve our aspirations.

Autumn 2 Week 2

During this week we have been very busy in Year 2.  We have been continuing our work in Science by exploring our school dinners and thinking of ways we can make our meals more balanced.

We have been finding out about landmarks in Scotland and have all produced some amazing writing about the landmarks we have learnt.  We look forward to continuing this work in our next few lessons when we will explore landmarks in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Autumn 2 Week 1

We hope all of our children and their families had a relaxing half term break and are feeling refreshed and ready for the second half of Autumn term.

This week we have been beginning our brand new areas of learning and introducing the children to our new learning challenges in Science and Geography. 

In Science we are going to be completing a series of challenges to answer the question

How can we look after ourselves so that we can keep clean and healthy?  

In Geography we will be completing various challenges to answer the question

What makes the United Kingdom so special?

We look forward to sharing our learning with you in the next few weeks.

Autumn 1 Week 6

During this week the children have been working very hard.

In Literacy they have been very creative using noun phrases to write about the setting from our text ‘The Tin Forest’.  They have produced some wonderful work and we look forward to sharing this work on display in our Year 2 area.

Throughout the week the children have been working hard in Numeracy using their number facts for 20 to derive new facts using our tens numbers. Try challenging them to tell you a related fact they know, e.g If 5+3=8, what other facts can you tell me?  We are sure they will enjoy reciting lots of facts back to you!

In Science the children have been continuing their work on materials.  Following on from their work on properties of materials this week we have begun an investigation to answer the question: What would be the best material to make a jacket to keep us dry? They have all made predictions about the materials chosen and have talked about which they think will be the most suitable to the least suitable.  The children are very excited to carry out this investigation as the next part of their learning. 

Well done to all those who have logged onto TT Rockstars, we have spent some time in class playing on the website and talking about how to solve the calculations.  To support the children with this we are sending home all the facts for the ten times table with the associated division facts and we hope this will support the children when playing the game.

Autumn 1 Week 5

As usual we have had a very busy week in year 2!

As part of our history we have been learning about what it was like to be a child in the 1950’s. We played lots of games from this era such as hopscotch, leap frog, hoola-hoop, and two balls. We then played on I pads as most of the children said this was a modern game. We discussed which we preferred.

The children really enjoyed starting their final piece of artwork in the style of Frida Khalo. Hopefully we will be able to finish them next week and display our masterpieces!

The children are really excited about the re-launch of TT Rockstars and have promised to play the game at home, as part of their homework, as often as they can. Please help and encourage this so that we can all become times table experts!

Learning Challenge Homework

We would like to say a huge well done to all the children who completed this weeks learning challenge homework to find out about English landmarks.  All the staff were extremely impressed by the standard of work produced and it has been wonderful to see how much effort has been put into this work.

During our Geography lessons this week the children have been able to use this research to confidently talk about and share their learning about landmarks they have found out about.

Well done everyone and we look forward to seeing what the next learning challenge homework brings.

To celebrate this work we will be uploading some examples of the work that has been produced after each challenge.  Here are some examples of this weeks work.

Class Author – Jill Murphy

This term our class author is Jill Murphy.  Jill Murphy has written lots of children’s books but is very famous for creating the characters of The Large family.  If your child has any Jill Murphy books at home that you would be willing to share with us in class we would be extremely grateful.  Please put your child’s name inside the book.

We show respect by supporting Children in Need to help children in the UK.

We show respect to each other by taking turns.
