In Year 2, the children develop their independent learning approaches within a supportive and considerate environment. The Year 2 team work closely together to create an exciting and connected curriculum that inspires children to embrace learning challenges.

Year 2 have been super scientists this week conducting two different experiments.
For our first investigation we wanted to see what would happen when we put food colouring onto shaving foam. We found that the food colouring was heavier than the shaving foam so it seeped through into the water below. This was representing the weather and what happens when it rains.
Can anyone remember the fancy name for things that fall from the sky? (it begins with P)
For our second investigation we needed to use our math skills. This week we have been learning how to measure using a ruler. We needed to answer the question “Is your forearm the same size as your foot?”.
We measured our feet and forearms in groups and then came to a conclusion.
What did you decide?
As an extra challenge this week can you come up with your own investigation to do with the sun?

Helping at Home
Ways to help at home
- Read every day
- Practise your spellings and common exception words
- As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
- Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
- Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
- Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
- Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
