This term we have been learning all about dinosaurs. We found out that the T-Rex was the king of all dinosaurs and if a T-Rex was to stand up fully it would be taller than our classrooms!
Once again our homework projects have been fantastic. Some of us made our own dinosaur dioramas which we proudly put on display, whilst some of us wrote some brilliant information pages filled with fascinating facts.
Look at some of the great work we have done!
We wrote our own dinosaur poems based upon a story we had heard called Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus. We used repetitive words and rhyming words in our poems to add interest for the reader.
What do you think of our poems?
In Maths we have been learning about measure. We made our own clocks to help us learn to tell the time. We also went outside to use water trays and cylinders to learn all about capacity.
Finally, we had a surprise visit from ‘Meet Pete’. We loved learning all about different dinosaurs and seeing some real fossils, but most of all we loved meeting Pete the T-Rex. At first some of us felt a little nervous but we soon realised Pete was lots of fun. We hope he comes back to visit us again one day!
This term we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. We found out that the fire started in a bakery on Pudding Lane and quickly spread across London due to the houses being made from timber and also being built so close together.
Our homework projects this term have been a great success. We have made some amazing houses, created some great fact pages and even made our own PowerPoints to show our friends.
Look at some of the fantastic houses we created!
We also did some lovely writing about the Great Fire of London.
We have been very fortunate to have a visit from the Kent fire and rescue service this term. We all got to look at a fire engine and learn what equipment modern fire fighters use. It is very different to what people would have used at the time of the Great Fire of London!
In maths we have been learning about shapes, sequencing and fractions. We tried to make our own sequences using 3D shapes and we showed our understanding of fractions using multi-link cubes.
We are really proud of all we have achieved this term and we are now looking forward to a well-earned rest at the end of this term!
This term we have been learning all about Superheroes, (both fictional and real). We found out that many people do amazing jobs that make them real superheroes, such as the emergency service workers. We discussed what they do and how their work requires them to be brave, helpful and kind.
We created some amazing superhero art work.
In RE we have been learning about Hinduism and we looked at famous festivals such as Diwali and found out how these festivals are celebrated. We then created our own amazing Rangoli patterns.
We really enjoyed ‘Big Me Day’ this term and we were really lucky to have people come to visit us to tell us all about their jobs. We found out what a nurse and a physiotherapist have to do to help other people. We were even lucky enough to try using some of the special equipment that they have to help others such as crutches and a walking frame! We all came to school dressed up and it was a lot of fun to find out what we would all like to be when we grow up.
We think we look amazing. Don’t you!
After all our hard work this term we are really looking forward to a well-earned rest during the Christmas holidays and we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Fairy Tale fun in Year 2.
For our first term in Year 2 we have been learning all about different fairy tales. We imagined what it would be like to go on a magic carpet ride like Aladdin did, and we created some beautiful pictures of mermaids just like Ariel from the Little Mermaid.
In Science we planted our own seeds like Jack did in Jack and the beanstalk. We are now all very excited to watch them grow!
In English we held a class debate about whether the wolf in The Three Little Pigs was innocent or guilty. Some children felt the wolf should be ‘exonerated’, as blowing the three little pigs houses down was just a terrible mistake!
Look at our fantastic mermaid pictures!
Look at some of our fairy tale castles which we have proudly put up on display!
We hope our parents and carers will feel really proud of us all as we have been working really hard in our lessons and have impressed both Miss Kierans and Miss Bannister with our great work. We have made a great start to Year 2.
