Year 2

Wowzers what a hot end to the week. 

In English this week working together to build sentences.  We have used verbs, alliteration, rhetorical questions, onomatopoeia, repetition and description into our sentences.  

In Maths we have been looking at multiplication and division. Understanding that multiplication is commutative and division is not. 

In Topic we drew an aerial view of our local area. 

In Art we had a go at making noses, ears and eyes using paper mache. 

We had a wonderful day making soup!  The children peeled, chopped and grated lots of different vegetables.  They ALL tried the raw vegetables and the cooked soup! Some were pleasantly surprised! 

 

Keep practising your times tables and use the link below to Top Marks where you will find lots of maths challenges. 

 

Abacus is up and running.  Please log into your account using the password and code on your bookmarks.  If you have any trouble logging in, please just let us know.  If your child finds the timing stressful on Abacus, or if you don't have access to a phone, tablet or computer, please let us know and we can give you a paper copy of the homework.  Please ensure these paper copies are returned to school as soon as you have completed them. 

 

We are anticipating some sunshine at last!  Please make sure that your child has a (NAMED!) hat in school this week. 

Please can you ensure that your child has a coat in school everyday (NAMED!). 

If your child has a pair of wellingtons (NAMED!) they would like to bring to school, please bring in a bag that can hang from their pegs.

Week commencing 28th March 2022

DT Day 11th February 2022

We had a full fat fun filled day on Friday. First we designed our Tudor Houses, remembering to label carefully. We then had great fun creating a piece of Wattle and Daub. Sadly no poo was allowed, but the children used hay and salt dough. They found it quite tricky to weave in and out and provided them with an insight into how tricky it would have been to build houses in Tudor times. The children then used the boxes to create their houses. Lots of careful measuring was needed to create their windows and beams. Some children put thatch on their buildings. They all had a great time and boy were the classrooms messy at the end of the day. Sign of a good lesson. Sadly we cannot included everyone in our videos, but see if you can spot yourself or a friend.

Safer Internet Day February 8th 2022

On Tuesday we held our Safer Internet Day. The children spent the morning discussing how to stay safe when using an internet device at home. The afternoon was spent using their coding skills to create short videos. The children were very knowledgeable on how to stay safe when using their computer games, knowing when to "Block" and "Report"; knowing that they can always talk to an adult about anything that is happening on their games that they feel uncomfortable with.
You can find more about online safety on our Year Group page by clicking on the Safer Internet Day icon.

We have been learning the number bonds using actions in Maths. Why not have a go at home!
