We have finished Spring 2 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y2..............

The Year 2 team would like to say a big well done to all the children who continued with their learning online during the recent lockdown. We all really enjoyed seeing the children and the children tried so hard. We know that it is no substitute for children being in school, but I am sure you appreciate the effort the children made. The team would also like to send out many thanks to all the parents and older siblings who helped the children during this time. We really do appreciate your efforts.

The children have since settled back into school really well and are working extremely hard to catch up on their learning.

Through our topic ‘The Great Fire of London, we have done lots of learning across different subjects. We have explored the fire in history, reading and writing.  In history we looked at how the fire started and what happened as a result of the fire. The children really enjoy learning about the fire.

In English, we have been using the text The Snail and the Whale. We have explored the language used and used the beautiful pictures to describe the characters in the story.

In phonics, we have been learning all our Set 2 and 3 sounds. We have been finding our sounds in words and practising reading our words quickly without sounding them out.

In Maths, we have finished learning about addition and subtraction. We are using the column method. We are building on our learning in small steps as we know how important it is for children to add and subtract. We have also looked at money and the value of money. We can make different amounts and add amounts together. We have looked at how to work out change.

In D&T, we created a fruit salad. The children had to design their fruit salad and then they made it. They practised the skills that they would need to be able to make it.

In geography, we have been looking at hot and cold places, especially the deserts. We have found out that a desert could be cold as well as hot.

We recently celebrated British Science Week. We made our own paint out of fruit by mashing it and adding water. We also talked about who could be a scientist and discovered that anyone could be. We have some children who can’t wait to be Doctors and Dentists.

Our favourite author is Jeremy Strong, so we are enjoying reading some of his books during storytime. They are really funny and make us laugh. We have been looking at the language that he uses. We have also been reading some of our 10 to read before you leave books.

The Year 2 team have really enjoyed teaching year 2 this half term, even though it was unusual circumstances. It has been fantastic to see them back in school and settling back into their schoolwork so quickly.

Well done Year 2.

The Year 2 team
