We are very proud of the year 2 class who have now graduated! You have all worked hard this year and we wish you all the best on your new journey in to Key Stage 2!
We enjoyed a beautiful day in the sunshine at Knowsley Safari park. We went on a safari tour, had a picnic outside, watched the sea lion show and also went on one of the rides. We were all very tired by the end of the day.
Children grew their own cress from seeds and once it had grown decided to make egg-cress sandwiches. This taught the children that food comes from plants or animals. They learnt the importance of planting and farming. The children went to the chickens and picked their eggs, boiled them and made a delicious filling for their sandwiches.
Take a look at the winning eggs for this Year’s Easter Egg Competition.
We raised awareness for Brain Tumors by celebrating Wear a Hat Day!
To celebrate the end of our reading month, we listened to a story around the campfire!
Look at the fantastic bread some of our Year 2 students made for their Little Red Hen challenge. They look delicious!
We have been learning about the Nativity Story. First we sequenced the events, then we used our own thoughts and feelings to answer questions about the story.
It’s the 1st of December and we have opened our book advent calendars! Exciting times lie ahead.
We have enjoyed retrieving non-fiction information all about animals to include in our non-chronological
The children enjoyed decorating their Christmas tree with sparkly baubles, glittery tinsel and flashing lights.
In Year 2 have been adding two digit numbers by exchanging their tens for ones.
We wore non-uniform to raise money for Children in Need.
The children carried out a science experiment as part of Science Day. They were finding out which biscuit is the best to dunk. They dunked a range of biscuits and timed how long it took the biscuits to go soggy.
During English we have been focusing on the Traction Man story. We have enjoyed exploring the characters in the book. We did some hot seating to understand how the boy in the story felt when he received a Traction Man toy!
In Year 2 children have been learning about Rosa Parks and her influence on Black History. We sequenced the story on how Rosa Parks’ experience on the bus led to changes in segregation laws.
Children were able to use expressions and actions appropriately when performing the poems. They projected their voices in different ways to add an effect to their performances. They worked collaboratively and all set out different ways to perform their poems.
The children also provided each group with feedback with one thing they could improve on and two things that worked best.
Children revisited adding two numbers bridging ten, they used tens frame to support their understanding of making ten. They then used concrete, pictorial and abstract ways to show subtraction. Children began by subtracting through ten, by subtracting down to ten then subtracting the rest of the number for example:
We worked in groups to find rhyming words for words taken from the poem ‘Grasshopper One’ by Grace Nichols. Once we came up with rhyming words we all changed a line of a verse including a rhyming word of our choice. The class then came together and read the poem with the new lines and performed it.
The year 2 children have enjoyed walking to school everyday as part of the walk to school week.
The children used a part-part whole model to partition numbers.
The children have been learning about tens and ones. They used concrete materials to put their numbers in place value charts.
The children were identifying the features of a computer.
The children in year 2 enjoyed carrying out a science experiment to see which is the best suitable material for a toy car to travel the furthest. The children wrote their predictions and were excited to discover the results of the experiment. We tested materials such as wood, plastic, cardboard and metal. Which material do you think was the most suitable?
