Year 2 Class

Miss Plant warmly welcomes all of the children to Year 2.

As the oldest children in key stage 1, we try to set a good example to the younger children. We are a busy class where lots of creative and fun learning takes place through topic work and subject specific lessons. We are always encouraged to be happy, work hard and treat each other with kindness as Jesus taught us.

Spring 2 2019

Planks, Patches and Pirates

 

 

Our topic this half term has taught us all about life at sea and what it means to be a pirate, arrrrrr! 
We started off the topic by receiving a mysterious envelope that had an anagram clue all mixed up... we worked in teams to solve the clue which then unlocked our outside pass to hunt for the words we had put together. After finding out correct picture, we had to work as a whole class to solve the final clue which led us to a mysterious locked treasure chest! We couldn't wait to find out what was inside!

 

 In Maths, we have been revising everything we have been learning based on the four operations. Miss Plant has kept us hooked on linking our learning to the four operations. We are very good at showing our understanding in different representations, such as: a bar model and a whole part model. 

As we have found out, pirates are very good at map reading. We have been learning all about map reading, compass points and symbols that are used to represent landmarks and features. We discussed the language physical and human features and how we can use this vocabulary when creating our own pirate map of the local area.

We have looked at atlas work in Geography to think about which continents the dinosaurs came from.

We also made a timeline of the different dinosaur time periods.

Autumn 2018 Class Topic: Towers, tunnels and Turrets

Year 2  have made some wonderful creations. Mrs Downes and Mrs Mellor have been very impressed by their knowledge. It was also delightful to hear parents comment on the excellent behaviour and attitude to learning on the class visit to Warwick Castle.

  

  

 Our eating habits have transformed drastically over the centuries in both the food we eat and the way we eat it. In the Middle Ages people had  two meals a day – dinner at noon and supper in the evening – became the norm. Snacking was also quite common, albeit mostly among commoners and those performing manual labour. Year 2 explored eating habits from the middle ages by making their own food.
