In topic we have nearly finished learning about Great Britain. We have been locating the different cities and researching information about them. Ask your child what they know. Can they name a city? What do they know about that place?
 
 
Our next topic will be all about – Chocolate! We will be finding out where it comes from and how it is made. Children will be writing a non-chronological report about chocolate. They will also be writing instructions for making a chocolate bar.
 
 
In numeracy we will be moving onto measures. Encourage your child to think about the length and weight of different objects. Which is the heaviest? Lightest? Longest? Shortest? 
 
 
 
Please continue to encourage your child to read. We are making good progress with the reading comprehensions.
Children are still enjoying Mathletics and compete to wear the mathletics band!
 
 
Thank you for your continued support.

Eggonauts

Why are some materials right for the job, and some materials wrong?

We tested this question by making special rockets for eggs, to see whether the egg would break or survive a drop. We all designed different shaped rockets using a mix of materials. We looked at what would be a sensible casing for the egg and we looked at what would protect the egg the best.

Take a look!

Lady with the Lamp!

Here is our display for our current topic work all about Florence Nightingale.

We have discussed her life, and found out lots of information about all the amazing things that she did to make our hospitals so much better! We spoke about the impact she has had on our hospitals today, and how she cared for hundreds of people in the war.

Welcome to the Year 2 blog

 

 

During the first two weeks of the new half term, we focused on the artist Andy Goldsworthy. Children have researched information about the artist and replicated his work.

We sourced natural materials from the field and created art work using this.

Autumn Y2

Our new topic is ‘Night At The Museum’. We started the topic by watching the DVD as a stimulus. Children loved the film and will complete work around it. The literacy focus will be: writing a recount, character descriptions, story writing and up-levelling sentences.

In numeracy children will be concentrating on times tables, addition and place value.

PE is on a Monday and Tuesday.

Year 2 children have the opportunity to learn to play the recorder every Tuesday morning, with Mr Dodd who plays for one of the top 3 brass bands in the world!

Please continue to support your child with daily reading and weekly homework.
