Some of the Year 2 children enjoyed picking pears and apples from our fruit trees. They managed to fill a basket full of delicious fruit to share with the whole class.
After reading the story Silly Billy, Year 2 shared their worries during a circle time. They all respected each other throughout by listening to each other and taking turns to share their worries.
This week children represent numbers using Dienes and Numicon to support their learning.
We have been focusing on our value Respect. To help us understand what respect is, we used the traditional story Goldilocks and The Three Bears as Goldilocks showed no respect when she went into the Three Bears House.
The children have really been enjoying their P.E sessions with our Sports Coach Ashley. They have had fun keeping fit and learning new skills.
Children enjoyed this activity and understood finding ten more and ten
less than a number. They used concrete resources to support their
In topic we have been comparing what life was like in 1666 compared to as it is now in 2019. Ask your child to tell you how things have changed.
We have been getting messy with paint in art recently by exploring how we can mix primary colours to make secondary colours.
The year 2 children turned into poets this week. They have been busy acting out poems, finding and writing rhyming word and they have done a fantastic job at writing their own poems. Well done Stems!
In science, Stems explored and experimented with different materials to test if their shapes could be changed and they recorded their findings.
To raise awareness and show children how it would feel like to have a stammer, the Stems played some powerful games in class that give them insight to what it would be like living with a stammer.
“It was annoying, I had to stop talking and I just wanted to talk.” – MS
“I was a bit annoyed, it was rude, I wish she listened.” NM
“I felt sad because you talked over me and I didn’t like it.” RL
Stems agreed that if someone has a stammer they need to show patience when they speak, not to finish their sentences and make sure they are paying attention.
The children created some fantastic poems about the children in their class using rhyming couplets. They had lots of fun getting creative with rhyming words to their names.
Stems did a brilliant job at using chalk and black paper to create Fire of London art work. The children chose their colours carefully and blended using their fingers to create some fantastic fires.
Year 2 worked hard to add three, one digit numbers. To help support their learning the children used cubes and ten frames to do this.
Miss Nasur transformed into Samuel Pepys in Topic and helped the children to use Ipads to find out information about who Samuel Pepys was and what he did.
Ask your child to tell you all about Samuel Pepys!
In R.E the children discussed who their role model is and why. We had a range of role models from teachers, doctors, Ed Sheeran, Spiderman, Batman and Ariana Grande.
