Our Learning in Class
Term 1/ Week 3
Term 1/ Week 2
We have had another fantastic week in Year 2 and the children are settling into their learning really well! This week we continued our 'Globe Trotters' topic with a look at some famous explorers. We used our history skills to put the explorers in chronological order on a timeline. We then used our geography skills to locate the continents they explored. Click on the explorers below to have another watch of the videos we used in class:
In English we have been busy creating story maps to help us retell the story of 'Mrs Armitage on Wheels'. We then used our imagination to think of other bizarre and wonderful things Mrs Armitage might add to her bike and new roller skates!
In Maths we have been practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We have also been working hard on a range of Maths puzzles to help us recap our learning from Year 1.
On Thursday we had our first Achievement Assembly with a difference! We stayed in our classroom and Mrs Yarnold appeared as if by magic on our whiteboard! We really enjoyed celebrating all the wonderful achievements so far and are looking forward to many more over the year.
Well done everyone for a super week!
Term 1/ Week 1
What an amazing first week in Year 2! Jazz class have blown me away with the way they have quickly adapted to life in Year 2. Although we were only in for three days we got stuck into our topic 'Globe Trotters'. As we are going to be travelling around the globe this term we had to make our very own passports.
We had so much fun making maps and staining the paper with teabags to make them look old but we had even more fun crumpling and tearing them to add to the aged look. We learnt the points on a compass (North, South, East and West - Never Eat Shredded Wheat!) and used the directions to find hidden explorers in our classroom. Our topic adventures continued with naming the 7 continents and making our own paper plate globes. They look fantastic hanging up in our classroom!
We even fitted in a Maths Mission where we used our number bonds to 10 to think of different combinations for 10 cheeky mice and 1 greedy snake. In English, we used our inference and prediction skills by looking at the front cover of our new book 'Mrs Armitage on Wheels'.
Well done Jazz class - you are all such superstars!
Hello Year 2s! We hope you have had a lovely summer and are looking forward to the start of Year 2. We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to school and getting to know you all. We have lots of fun learning planned and can't wait to get started!
