Its the end of Spring 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y2…………………….

Year 2 have had a great start to the Spring term where they have really settled back into school, making good progress with their learning.

Through our topic ‘The Great Fire of London, we have done lots of learning across different subjects. In History, we looked at how the fire started, why it burned uncontrollably for so long and the impact of the fire on the city of London. The children have really enjoyed learning about the fire and sharing their knowledge with each other. They are eager, enthusiastic historians!

In English, we have been using the text ‘Paddington’s Post’; this book is about a bear from Darkest Peru called Paddington who documents his new adventure in England through letters and postcards. We have explored the language used and used the fantastic, physical resources inside the book to support our learning of writing to inform. We wrote our own letters to inform.  During our Reading lessons, we have been reading a range of short texts and poems that we are learning to read fluently and then answering questions about the text.

In Phonics, we have been reviewing 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. We are now working hard to apply our phonics to spelling patterns.

In Maths, we have finished learning about addition and subtraction. We are now learning about money. Starting off by identifying the value of coins and notes; we are now learning to compare amounts of money and find totals using pounds and pence.

In Science, we are learning about the properties of everyday materials. We have been learning new vocabulary to describe the properties of materials, like malleable and absorbent. We conducted an experiment to see which items are absorbent. It was lots of fun!

In Art, we have been looking at George Seurat. We have been learning about the pointillism technique and practising using this skill in our own paintings. We are using George Seurat’s techniques to create our own final pieces.  

In computing, we are learning all about internet safety. We are learning how to stay safe online and why it is important to do so.

The Year 2 team have really enjoyed teaching year 2 this half term. It has been a successful start to the new year, and we are all impressed with the year group’s enthusiasm for learning and determination to do their best.

Well done Year 2.

The Year 2 team.
