Spring 1 Term Learning - 2018

We have had a very busy start to the year in Year 2.

In our Literacy sessions we have been reading the story Beauty and the Beast.  We have been thinking about the characters in the story and why they behave as they do. We have also been learning to use our voice in interesting ways when reading dialogue.

In maths we have been sorting lots of data and putting this into graphs and pictograms. We have also been working on solving addition problems. 

We have been enjoying learning about the miracles of Jesus in R.E. We have listened to lots of the stories and enjoyed acting out Jarius’ Daughter. 

Our Art sessions have been great fun. We have been learning about the artist Kandinsky and have created our own artwork in his style.

During P.E we have been pushing ourselves to use new pieces of equipment and have been learning about different ways to jump off these. We have really loved starting our swimming lessons. 

Autumn 2 Term Learning - 2017

Year 2 - During maths we have been using resources such as diennes and 100 squares to help us to add and subtract two digit numbers from two digit numbers. We are now moving on to adding three one digit numbers along with inverse calculation.

During Literacy we loved performing poetry using instruments.


Autumn 1 Term Learning - 2017

In Literacy Year 2 have learnt through 'Talk For Writing' how to retell the story of 'Goldilocks and The Three Bears' using excellent vocabulary. Now they are using their skills to write their own version of this story with a new plot and different characters.   In science Year 2 have been experimenting with different materials to describe their properties which will lead them to make a boat in the next few weeks.

During PSHE Year 2 have been learning about Growth Mindset and this has improved their skills at working together.

In Maths Year 2 have been focussing on number work and partitioning 2 digit numbers in various ways, using different representations for the number. Year 2 have also been comparing numbers, using greater than and less than crocodiles to help them visualise the size of the number.

During RE Year 2 have been reading Bible Stories involving our topic which is The Chosen People. They have been using role play to retell these stories and were able to reflect on how we feel when God chooses us for different things.
