Term 2 - Pole to Pole

Enquiry question: How are people, penguins and plants the same?

What a 'cool' (brrrr) term we have had in Year 2!

The children absolutely loved reading our class story 'Blown Away' and meeting Penguin Blue and his friends. We used a story map with pictures and actions to help us retell the whole story from memory! The children then wrote their own versions of the story and published them in a class book.

In Maths, we have been practising mental strategies for adding and subtracting to prepare us for adding and subtracting two digit numbers. We have also continued to practise counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s.

In Topic, the term started with an exciting delivery from Antarctica - penguin pupils! We learnt about polar animals and how they are suited to living in cold habitats. Our blubber gloves experiment was a hit and the children decided that polar bears, seals and orcas are much better suited to icy water than humans! The children also created some fantastic artwork over the term - from charcoal penguins to amazing polar light displays!
