Spring 2

Week beginning 28th March 2022

 

This week in English we have been finding out how to care for ducklings and keep them safe.

We have been observing our duck eggs very closely, but nothing has happened yet! 

Mrs. Richardson has informed us that after the Easter holidays things will start to change and we can't wait to see the eggs hatch!

 

In Maths we have been practising our mental arithmetic and using our reasoning skills to solve different kinds of problems.

 

In RE we have learnt about the Easter story and how Christians celebrate this very special festival.

We also enjoyed making Easter cards and taking part in an Easter egg hunt. 

 

Have a lovely Easter holiday and we will see you back at school on Tuesday 19th April.

Week beginning 21st March

 

This week in English we have been writing about a day in the life of Jemima Puddle Duck, but as a diary entry. 

We had to remember to write in the first person using words such as 'I', 'me' and 'my'. 

We have also been recapping our understanding of nouns and verbs.

 

In Maths we have been consolidating our understanding of the properties of 3D shapes. 

We can now describe 3D shapes using vocabulary such as faces, edges and vertices.

We can also sort shapes using Venn diagrams and Carroll diagrams.

 

In Science we have been finding out about animals and their babies.

We are really excited to have been given the opportunity to care for some duck eggs.

At the moment they are in an incubator in the Year 2 area and we are going to observe them over the next few weeks and record what happens!

 

It was lovely to see Mum’s and special grown ups come into school this week to celebrate our Mother’s Day assembly with us.

We are so proud of our children performing for you.

They were fantastic!

Thank you for joining us. We hope you had a wonderful time!

 

Have a lovely weekend.

 

Week beginning 14th March 2022

 

In English we have begun a new story called 'Jemima Puddle Duck'.

We have learnt lots of interesting facts about the author, Beatrix Potter, such as her love of animals and the countryside in the Lake District.

We have also had the opportunity to look at many of her watercolour paintings that illustrate her stories.

Her animal characters are shown wearing clothes, which then inspired us to design some bespoke outfits for Mushroom our school rabbit! We were very creative.

Jemima Puddle Duck is full of interesting vocabulary and we have learnt many new words this week!

 

In Maths we have continued to explore shape.

We can now name  3D shapes such as cubes, cuboids, cylinders, cones, spheres and pyramids.

We have also had the opportunity to identify and create patterns using 2D shapes.

 

In Science we have been exploring the life cycle of plants.

We have also been busy helping Mr. Cliff to plant different kinds of seeds so that we can make our school grounds a wonderful place for wild life to visit.

 

Have a great weekend.

Week beginning 7th March 2022

 

This week in English we have been writing an alternative ending to the story 'A Way Home For Wolf'.

We thought very carefully about different Arctic animals Wilf could meet to take him back to his parents, such as an arctic hare, lemming, reindeer, Orca whale, seal or a husky. 

We used lots of description to make our stories interesting for the reader and tried to use different kinds of punctuation such as commas, exclamation marks and question marks.

 

In Maths we began a new topic all about shape.

We can now name 2D shapes such as circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons! 

We can also talk about the properties of 2D shapes.

Next week we will be finding out  about 3D shapes.

 

In Geography we have been looking at the Human and Physical features of Bromley Cross and in Science we have been planting seeds ready for an experiment.

 

The children were very excited to share their learning with you this week.

They have worked so hard over the last few months and have produced some super learning which they are very proud of. 

 

You might like to have a go on 'Hit the Button' which is an interactive maths game with quick fire questions on number bonds, times tables, doubling and halving, multiples, division facts and square numbers. The games are against the clock and challenge and develop mental maths skills

Have a lovely weekend.

 

Week beginning 28th February 2022

 

This week in English we answered questions about the story  'The Way Home For Wolf'. 

We answered both multiple choice questions and inference questions. 

We also looked carefully at the structure of the story and how the 'dilemma' of Wilf getting lost and falling through the ice was resolved. 

Next week we are going to write an alternative ending to the story.

 

We have also been learning about the past and present tense. 

We wrote sentences using both tenses. Irregular verbs were quite tricky!

Ben jumps over the mat in P.E.

Ben jumped over the mat in P.E.

Amy runs quickly up the hill.

Amy ran quickly up the hill.

David goes swimming on Monday evening.

David went swimming on Monday evening.

 

In Maths we have been constructing pictograms and block graphs.

We have also been answering lots of questions about data such as -

Which is the most popular? Which is the least popular? How many people were surveyed?

In Geography we have compared the human and physical features of Bromley Cross with the Arctic.

In History we have  compared the education of Beatrix Potter with our learning at school.

 

Thank you to the families who bought our daffodil plants today. We still have a few pots left which can be purchased on Monday.

The money raised by the Year 2 children will buy new seeds which they can grow over the next few weeks.

 

The children are very excited to share their learning with you on Monday 7th March at 9am or on Wednesday 9th March after school.

 

Have a lovely weekend.
