We are looking forward to all the children returning to school and starting their new classes. We will update our blog regularly about our exciting learning adventures this year. 🙂
We have enjoyed our first day. We explored our Wellbeing Rainbow. Can you remember all of the sections? We have stopped to really take notice and appreciate our surroundings by making observational drawings in the playground. Cross your fingers for fine weather tomorrow. Don’t forget it’s Sports Day! Year 2 timings are 11.15 – 12.00.
What a super time we’ve had today at Twycross Zoo! The children have really enjoyed themselves and had a wonderful time. We had educational talks throughout the day to learn more about habitats and had the opportunity to see some animals close up and learn about their adaptations for the habitats they live in. Year […]
The children loved their visit to the ‘Smoothie Bike’ and really enjoyed watching staff pedal the bike to power the blender. We were shown a range of different fruits which the children identified. We enjoyed a smoothie made from banana, apple juice, orange juice and berries.
Year 2 have been inspired by their class artists today and have been creating a collaborative work of art for our STEAM exhibition. 2 Rousseau have been using symmetry and practising their art skills to make mini beasts in the style of their class artist. 2 Matisse have also been considering symmetry and created leaf […]
The children have had some super ideas to plan a range of animal and insect houses. They have used their learning from researching micro habitats to think about the conditions and think about the materials they would need to build their designs. We have used our mathematical skills to make large 3D nets to […]
We have been busy researching habitats and presenting our findings to the class. The data we collected from our field visit to the Swale has been presented as bar graphs. We have interpreted the results and our findings have lead us to the conclusion that we must build homes to support a wider biodiversity. […]
What an exciting first day back we’ve had today! Today has been the first day of our STEAM week in which we will be learning about science, technology , engineering, art and maths. Today we have been busy learning about habitats, micro-habitats and biodiversity. Year 2, can you explain what these words mean? As scientists, […]
In our theme learning this week we have started our new topic ‘Enchanted Kingdom’. We have begun to learn about the country of Kenya. Year 2, share your learning with somebody at home using these questions to help you. Which continent is Kenya on? Which colours are in the flag of Kenya? What is the […]
Just a little reminder to keep practising telling the time at home. We have learned o’clock, half past, quarter past, quarter to and as an extra challenge some children have been learning telling the time to 5 minute intervals e.g. Five minutes past 9. Have a look at the question below and find which clock […]
