What a week! Although we only had 4 days of learning, the children in year 2 have been keeping very busy. In English we have put our knowledge of captions to the test and fixed some examples in need of improvement and come up with our own captions for bulging eyed frogs, terrifying tigers and blasting rockets.
In Maths we have really challenged ourselves when using 3 addends and trying to represent equations on a number line. We also used our knowledge of commutative law to solve a tricky maths problem when journaling.
During our STEM morning we have considered the different types of gardens and plants there are, making predictions about growth and observing closely our very own beans as they will begin to grow.
Year 2 have also learned about the oceans and continents through songs and maps, explored the tale of The Good Samaritan and the value of kindness and considered our own responsibilities in the classroom and at school. We have also produced some very creative and well thought out collages using the skills of cutting, tearing, crumpling, arranging and many more.
Next week’s learning will look like this:
English: We will be exploring poetry and starting our first writing showcase of the year!
Maths: Bridging 10 and thinking about how we can make equations friendlier with our number facts.
STEM: We will be learning about pollen and investigating somewhere in the school for evidence of hungry bugs.
Geography: We will be exploring a compass and working out how to use one.
Art: We will be using our knowledge of Georgia O’Keeffe to draw in her style.
History: We will be using historical sources to find out about Mary Anning and Christopher Columbus
PRE: We will continue to explore the theme of kindness.
Thank you Year Two for a super week!
The Year Two Team.
