Term 3

 

Year 2 have had a spectacular trip so far around Europe, Asia and Australasia! We have learnt many things about each country including their flags, their population and famous landmarks.

Not only have we learnt about the countries we have also tasted food from each destination!

We’ve tasted Scones for the UK; Brie, croissants and brioche for France; prawn crackers and spring rolls for China; Noodles for Japan and Fairy bread for Australia.

 

 In English we have written a persuasive letter to the Prime Minister of Australia, persuading him to help more with the recent bushfires, sparking a heated debate!

 

Maths has been exciting as we were learning to measure in metres and centimetres! We measured equipment in the hall and record it all on a table.

 

Term 2

Year 2 have had a tremendous term! We have learnt all about materials in science and investigated which materials are suitable for its purpose! We experimented with a jelly, chocolate and ice spoon, stirring them in water to see which one held up to the test.

 

Mog came crashing into our classroom with his Christmas Calamity! We watched his mess unfold as we described each scene, adding lots of fabulous words and description!

In Maths we have learnt all about our 2,5,10 and 3 times tables as well as learnt about money! We all know how much each coin and note is worth now, don’t worry we won’t spend it all!

Topic has been fascinating this term, we have gone back in time to see how London has changed since The Great Fire of London! We made bread as we found out the fire started in a bakery!

We also have explored how different the houses have changed and built our own!

 

 

We have had a fantastic term, we hope you all have a lovely christmas break and look forward to what Term 3 brings us!

Term 1

On our doorstep…

This term Year 2 have been reading Oliver Twist in English and have done lots of different types of writing. They have retold part of the story, written diary entries as if they were Oliver as well as the most recent piece where they became newspaper reporters.

The teachers helped the children become the best reporters they could be by dressing up as Nancy and Oliver Twist then letting the children ask them questions on the kidnapping of Oliver. The children used their notepads to write down all the important facts.

Year 2 have also been spending a lot of time this term focusing on their reading. Our class text has been ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. The children have ended the term by watching the film version to see how it has both similarities and differences.

The school have also been trying out a new reading website called Lexia. The children are able to practise their sounds, reading and comprehension of different stories. The children really enjoy playing the online programme so much they get to do it every morning when they first come in.

After all that learning, they have been doing lots of relax their minds. Year 2 do PE every Monday and this term they were lucky to have a special visitor come in and do PE with them. They played Rock, Paper, Scissors in lots of different ways and even came up with new ways to play using their whole body!
