What a busy half term Year 2 have had!
In English we have been learning how to write a postcard. In Maths, we have been using a range of methods to add and subtract numbers including exchanging. This has been a challenge but we have enjoyed using the concrete resources to help.
We are really enjoying our History lessons, particularly learning about The Gunpowder Plot and Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. We are now going to continue our learning about The Great Fire of London. Watch this space for our homework project linked to this unit of work
We have looked at and explored different places of worship and objects we would see there in R.E.
In Science, we have seen how materials can be used and has improved how lives through inventors like John Dunlop, Charles Mcintosh and John McAdams.
Our music lessons have explored rhythm and beat. What a musical and rhythmic lot Year 2 are! We have used instruments and body percussion to play a beat. We found this so much fun.
Well done Year 2 – keep up the good work!
Class 2 have had a busy, exciting half term!
We have particularly enjoyed Music, Science, Design & Technology, and Geography.
In Music, we have explored pitch, duration, and appropriate forms of notation. We learnt about how mood can be expressed using the voice and instruments.
In Science, we identified and compared the suitability of a variety of everyday materials. In fact, went on a discovery walk around the school grounds to identify materials and their uses!
In Geography, we discussed the different types of weather around the UK, what clothes we would wear in specific seasons and went outside to find out which direction the wind was coming from.
We also designed and made our own lunch containers in design and technology.
We are very proud of our wonderful children who have made a truly fantastic start to the new school year!
