Year 2 made their own clocks today as part of their new topic about 'time'. During this topic we will be revising our learning about 'o 'clock' times as well as learning about 'half past' times.
Please help your child by helping them to tell the time at home.
Over the past few weeks Year 2 have been learning about the Christian celebration of Easter and the Jewish celebration of Passover.
We have read stories and watched short animations that explain the stories behind these two important festivals.
Today the children started to create their own Sedar meal plates. Sedar plates are used during Passover meal celebrations in Jewish homes. The plates contain different types of food that remind Jewish people about the different parts from the Passover story. Please ask your children to retell the story to you.
Year Two began their new computing topic this week. They will be learning about the use of technology in the modern world and how it helps us in our everyday lives.
Here they are sorting household items into two groups; those that have computers in them and those that don't.
Year 2 created their own rhymes in pairs after reading 'Jim and The Beanstalk'. They had to create their own rhyming couplets based on the well-known rhyme 'Fee Fi Fo Fum'. The lesson also helped them to explore alliteration by using the alphabet to change the first sounds in each word so that they all matched.
Year 2 continued with their 'Dressing Up' art project today by exploring a range of printing apparatus to create different prints and textures in their sketchbooks and on A3 paper. As you can see, they absolutely love their practical art lessons!!
They will now use these ideas to create their own original designs for a textile pattern next lesson.
Just a quick look back at the children enjoying pond dipping. The children became Scientists for the day and learned how to safely scoop insects from the pond. They then took the insects inside and used a micro - scope to look closely at insects features
Year 2 have been enjoying their gymnastics lessons. They have been learning to travel across different apparatus using a range of techniques.
Year 2 began their 'Dressing Up' art project today. We looked at a range of fabric prints and patterns and found out the names for some of them.
The children selected a few of their favourite patterns and tried to recreate them in their sketchbooks. We will complete them next week where we will also be using describing words and key vocabulary to label them.
Year 2 have been spending some time playing an online 'dress-up' game. They then had to use describing words, key vocabulary and sentence starters to explain how to play the game to an alien who had come from the planet 'Zog'. Next week we will be comparing real-life v. online games.
Year 2 have started a new topic in RE. We are learning all about the different sorts of celebrations and festivals that people may celebrate; both religious and non-religious.
They had so many brilliant ideas - they are now on display on our class brainstorming sheet.
The children then chose their favourite 'celebration' and created a 'mind map' of it to explore it futher. Here are the children making a start on their mind maps. We will complete them next week.
We will be moving on to explore the Christian celebration of 'Easter' shortly - please keep an eye out for the photos.
