Hello everyone!

 

What a jam packed week of learning we have had! Well done to each and every one of you for always trying your best and and never giving up!

 

In maths we learnt all about fact families! 

 

In English we learnt about nouns and adjectives. If you could see all the terrific examples Class 5 and 6 came up with your socks would be blown off...however Miss Park and Miss Norris were silly billies, and totally forgot to snap up some pictures!

 

Luckily they stuck in our brains because they were that fantastic and we can remember them! Here are just a few...hold onto your socks folks, because they're amazing!

 

Nouns - box, bag, Miss Park, Miss Norris, whiteboard, pen, socks, chair, table, ball, trophy!

 

Adjectives - smooth, bumpy, sticky, spiky, rubbery, prickly, squishy, soft, tiny, gigantic!

 

We can't wait to see what amazing work you all get up to next week! As always, there is lots in store! Have a lovely weekend and we will see you all again soon!

Hello everyone!

 

We've had so much fun in school this week already and it's only Wednesday! We've begun building our Tudor houses, we've been practising counting in 5's and we've collected some amazing vocabulary to use in our fire poems!

 

Don't worry, we made sure that we were wearing all the correct protective gear to make sure we we're kept safe whilst sawing our wood!

 

 

 

We drew around each other's hands to practice counting in 5's!

 

Look at our amazing sentences we created using our fantastic vocabulary!

 

Keep up the amazing work Y2!

A big thank you to all of you who have remembered to bring your phonics folders in with you each day. A gentle reminder that it's super important to bring your phonics and reading books to school each day, so that grown-ups are able to read with you and keep helping you learn!

Hello everyone!

 

We had lots of fun today carrying out our scientific experiment. We have been looking at how we can change the shape of different materials. We investigated this by firstly choosing a range of materials: paperclips, elastic bands, paper, wood and plastic. Then we tested each material by twisting, stretching, squashing and bending. We recorded our results as a team to see which materials could change their shape and which couldn't!

 

What an exciting way to spend our Friday afternoon!

 

Great team work Y2!

Hello everyone! 

 

Last week we had so much fun re-creating The Great Fire of London! We thought we'd share some pictures of what we saw!

 

The houses were made from cardboard because it burns easily like wood! We crowded them together just like the houses were in 1666 and we set fire to them. We pretended that the fire was started by Thomas Farriner, who forgot to turn the oven off!

 

We sang "London's burning!" as we watched the fire spread quickly because of the strong wind and hot sun. We spoke about how the fire also spread at speed because of the materials the houses were made of. Just like after The Great Fire of London, all that was left of our houses was ash, rubble and mess!

Hello everyone!

 

Myself and Miss Norris wanted to share the fabulous learning that the children have done so far this week.

 

In Discovery, we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. In class we had lots of fun re-enacting the fire starting on Pudding Lane, escaping on the river Thames in boats and feeling upset as we watched St Paul's Cathedral burn! We then had a go at putting the sequence of events in chronological order!

 

 

 

In maths we have been practising place value. Class 5 and 6 have been working super hard on using tens and ones to partition whole numbers!

 

Here is our curriculum news!

Hello everyone!

 

Myself, Miss Norris and Mrs Scanlon just wanted to say a HUGE well done to each and everyone of you for your first two weeks in Y2. We are all SO impressed with how well you have all settled into your new classes and classrooms!

 

You should all be very proud of yourselves, as we know that it might have been a little bit nerve wracking leaving Y1!  We can't wait to start sharing all the wonderful work you have been doing at school and we promise it won't be long until we do...

 

But for now, another HUMUNGOUS thumbs up!
