On Friday, we were so lucky to have Quantum Theatre visit us to perform 'The Half Pint Kid'. This play was set in the Wild West with cowboys and a treasure quest! We learnt all about fractions, addition, subtraction and times tables.
All of Year 2 and Year 1 were exemplary, they listened so carefully and volunteered to join in enthusiastically.
Thank you for visiting us!
This half term, we are learning all about the history of communication.
We have already learnt about Egyptians creating papyrus paper and how William Caxton brought the printing press to England which revolutionised how many people could afford to read.
This week, we learnt all about morse code. We deciphered words and some of us even had a go at writing our own messges in morse code. We found that each letter of the alphabet is represented by a combination of dashes and dots.
Why not have a go at writing your own message?
The children have been excitedly talking about their outfits for the last week... World Book Day is almost here!
Tomorrow, the children are invited to dress up as their favourite book character to celebrate how amazing reading is.
Across the school, we will be looking at a wonderful book called 'The Journey'. It is a captivating book with simply stunning illustrations - it is a book which you could discuss for hours. We will share some of our work once World Book Day is over...
This week Year 2 have been working hard learning all about 2D shapes. The children have thought about the shape names and properties. We have learnt and are using lots of new vocabulary such as vertices, polygon and symmetrical.
You could ask your child:
How many shapes can you see around you?
What is the definition of a polygon?
This week year 2 have had a couple of strange things appear in their classrooms! On Monday, there was a furry rug with lots of signs on it using different sentence types. Then on Tuesday the children found a suitcase with a letter, a picture, some crayons and a jar of honey! The bear under the stairs left it! The children can't wait to start reading the book to find out what is going to happen next.
Every week the whole school complete the same science experiment. This week Year 2 have really enjoyed their wow science activity. It was all about static electricity. We had to rub a balloon on our hair and then use the balloon to roll an empty can across the table. It worked really well! Over the last few weeks we have experimented with liquid density, tie-dye milk and air pressure. We can't wait until our next experiment!
Over the last three weeks, we have enjoyed some fantastic assemblies from all three Year 2 classes.
Firstly, Ash Class shared all about different pets that we can own and the different ways that we have to look after them.
Then, Hawthorn Class told us all about 'The Journey Home' which is a book we learnt about in English. We shared our work and acted out the main points of the story.
Finally, Holly Class shared information about the Chinese New Year which is coming up next week. Children took on the roles of different animals and acted out the mythical story.
All three classes learnt songs which linked to their theme and sang them with enthusiasm!
Well done to everyone who took part, for their loud voices, big smiles and hard work to learn their lines. We are very proud of you all.
