Hot seating!

 

Year 2 had a busy afternoon using all their knowledge about questioning! We used the drama technique 'hot seating' to become the character 'Oliver' from the book 'How to Catch a Star'. We took turns becoming Oliver and asking him questions about his adventure in the book to find out more information and practice our questions!

Happy New Year!

 

Welcome back year 2! We have lots of new exciting things planned for our Spring term that we will have so much fun learning about!

Curriculum Newsletter - Autumn Term

Science

 

This term we will be exploring different types of habitats! We started the lesson by looking at familiar habitats which then brought us into a discussion on micro habitats. As part of this learning we went outdoors to see if we could find any micro habitats in our school grounds.

We took pictures of some of the habitats that we found!

Music

 

We have been on a musical safari!  We identified different animals from the noises they make and then used a range of instruments to create our own animal sounds.

History

We have been using primary sources to investigate what happened during 'The Great Fire of London'. We discovered a diary entry that we had to put back together to find out some interesting facts!

 

Literacy

 

We have been using drama techniques to recall a story! We had so much fun acting out the different parts of the book for our classmates and becoming the characters from the story we're learning about!

Numeracy

 

We were working in pairs during our numeracy lesson creating challenges for each other. We had to figure out how many tens and how many ones were in a number by drawing the cubes that would represent that number. We then corrected each others work!

 

 

African Drumming!

 

We had an excellent time on Monday afternoon learning how to play some songs we know on the African drums to celebrate Black History Month. We also had a chance to share our knowledge about Africa which was very exciting! 

Reading

 

We were very lucky to have year 4 come up to our class on Friday afternoon to read some books to us! We enjoyed listening to them as they read the stories and answering any questions they asked us about the story. They were excellent role models!

 

 

 

Learning about animal welfare!

 

This week we had a guest speaker visit us in year 2 who was teaching us all about how we should look after animals. We learnt lots of new facts about caring for animals and the important things we should remember if we own a pet!

Homework - 15/11/21

Science!

 

We had a lot of fun this week doing our science experiment! We are learning all about food and this experiment showed us what sugary foods do to our body. First we made some predictions of what we thought might happen. Then we mixed baking soda with vinegar which made the balloon expand. After the experiment we wrote what happened!
