  • We passed the inn-spection!

    Published 15/12/22

    We have had an incredibly busy end of term full of Christmas fun! We loved performing our show 'The Inn-spectors' to you all last week.

    This week in maths we have been investigating 2D and 3D shapes. We counted the edges, faces and vertices then sorted shapes based on their properties. We enjoyed comparing shapes and finding lines of symmetry on 2D shapes.

    In English we finished writing our own version of Lost and Found and enjoyed retelling the story with our own animals. 

    In science we have been continuing our topic of materials. We carried out an experiment to see what happened to materials when we put them in the freezer!

    In geography we have been exploring the seven continents then we had a closer look at the UK. We labelled the countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and the surrounding seas. We particularly enjoyed using Google Earth to explore our area.

    We have enjoyed Christmas activities this week too! Hope you all have a restful and enjoyable Christmas.

  • Imaginary friends and working together

    Published 28/09/22

    In Year 2, we have had a very productive learning week. In English, we enjoyed reading the story of 'Imaginary Fred' and created our own imaginary friends. We then wrote a character description of our new friend.

    In Maths, we demonstrated our understanding of number and place value, showing that we were able to partition numbers and compare numbers.

    In History, we have continued to look at the events of the Great Fire of London. We put the events in order on a timeline. We also learnt at the importance of Samuel Pepys and the importance of his diary during the fire.

    In Science, we have been sorting classroom objects into different categorise. The children had to work as a group to make decisions and listen to each other. They enjoyed putting all the objects back into their correct classroom places too.

  • A historical dig, number bonds and making gloop!

    Published 15/09/22

    Year 2 have had a great start to the Autumn term! We have enjoyed reading the Day the Crayons Quit and wrote about the crayons looks, personality and feelings. We also made inferences based on what we had read. We have also started looking at commands and using 'bossy' verbs to give instructions! 

    In maths, we have been recapping our number bonds to 10 and 20. We then checked our answers using a bar model and have moved onto comparing numbers using greater and less than symbols. 

    In history, we have begun our topic of the Great Fire of London. We went on a dig and found some artefacts which we then explored and came up with questions about what they could be.

    In science, we had lots of fun making gloop as part of our experiment! We investigated what happened when we mixed cornflour and water together and then left in to set.

  • Wonderful Wetland centre!

    Published 15/07/22

    This week Year 2 went on an amazing trip to The London Wetland Centre in Barnes. In science, we have been looking at Animal habitats so the Wetland Centre was the perfect trip for us. We travelled on the 33 to the centre, and we were so impressed with how sensible the children were on the bus. When we arrived we explored all the amazing grounds and saw so many types of birds including a huge crane. Then we went and saw some Asian small clawed Otters, luckily it was feeding time, so we saw them diving for fish. Additionally, we did a workshop on pond life and did some pond dipping. We learnt all about how different animals can survive underwater, and we saw some frogs. Finally, we went to a fantastic adventure playground and enjoyed playing in some water. This was great because it was such a hot day!

    We have had a fantastic week in Year 2. We did some wonderfully, creative writing in English. Year 2 created twisted tales swapping around the good and the evil character in the story of the 3 Little pigs. In maths, we have been recapping on the 4 operations, and we were so impressed at how well Year 2 retained their knowledge on this subject. On Friday it was the KS1 Sports Day. We had an amazing time on the field competing lots of activities. We were very impressed with Year 2's resilient attitude and for working so hard. Well done everyone!
