Year 2 decided that that wanted to show a little kindness to others people in the school. The children performed random acts of kindness throughout the day. They delivered cakes to Miss Hudson and Mrs Addis and sent kindness postcards to their friends around the school. 🤗
Formal Elements of Art
As part of our weekly Art lessons, the children in year 2 have been learning about the different formal elements of Art. This week the children explored the skill of using colour to create a 3D effect. I am sure you will agree that the pictures are out of this world!
Counting in 10s
Year 2 have been investigating what it means to count in tens through different representations. The children were able show a super understanding of the idea of groups of ten using bead strings and by challenging their partner to make a multiple of 10.
Who can help the Gingerbread Man travel safely across the river?
Year 2 have outshone themselves this week by designing and building a boat to take our Gingerbread Man across the river. We are pleased to report that the Gingerbread Man is still on the run as the year 2 children helped him to cross the river safely!
Making Gingerbread Men
Year 2 have been blending their learning of English, Science and Design and Technology through making gingerbread men this week. The children worked scientifically by testing the dough to think about twisting, bending and stretching in relation to their topic of Uses of Everyday Materials. In English, the children have been learning about imperative verbs and the features of Instructional Texts. Now the children have carried out the steps of making gingerbread men, they will be able to move on to writing their own instructions. We all agreed however, that the best part of the project was definitely the tasting! A big thank you to our head baker Mrs Beers for supporting our mini bakers in this project.
Design and Technology: Puppets
The year 2 children started their first Design and Technology project by investigating the features of puppets. Many of the children kindly brought in puppets at home to share with the class. The children were able to use their scientific knowledge of uses of materials when looking at the features of different puppets too. A brilliant afternoon!
Design and Technology: Making Puppets
As part of our first topic in Maths in year 2, the children have been representing two digit numbers in different ways. The children were able to deepen their understanding of tens and ones by representing their understanding using a variety of resources. Super work year 2!
Science: Uses of Everyday Materials
Year 2 have been exploring our school site to find examples of different materials. The children have been thinking about the different materials and identifying the properties of materials they found.
The children worked scientifically by grouping the materials according to their properties before moving on to thinking about the uses of different materials.
