Welcome to Year 2
Thank you to all the parents and families who came to see us at parents evening! It was really nice to meet you and have a chat about your children.
We had lots of people asking if there are any websites or books that they can use at home to support with Year 2 work. Below, we have listed some useful websites and links for books. These are just ideas to support at home if you feel you need them. Please don't see them as an extra thing to do!
We hope that you also find the handouts we provided useful.
If you have any questions, please pop and see us :)
Wow! What a fantastic week! Thank you very much to the parents and visitors who have been in to visit us during our STEM week. It was very interesting to hear about different jobs and it has really inspired us to think about what we would like to be when we grow up.
During the week, we have been inventors. On Thursday afternoon, we explored with batteries and wires. It was a challenge to make the bulb glow but with a little teamwork, we all managed it. We also had a go at constructing with nuts and bolts, building with Lego and painting our own inventions.
We hope you enjoy our photos :)
Wow! What a busy week we have had in Year 2. We have worked hard in Numeracy to order and compare numbers. In Science, we have been looking at different materials that are used to make different objects. In Topic, we have enjoyed learning about the Wright Brothers. We looked at evidence and artefacts and discussed what they tell us about past events. In Literacy, we invented our wings. As we made the wings, we wrote a word bank of bossy verbs. We then used our word banks to support us when we wrote our very own instructions for 'How to make wings for a crow'. I wonder what we can invent next week.
Here are some photos of us inventing our wings. We hope you enjoy them.
In Year 2, we have been reading Izzy Gizmo. She loves to invented things, but her inventions don't always work quite the way she wants them to. We have been looking at the features of instructions and we have even had a go at writing our own instructions. This week, we wrote instructions for 'How to make a jam sandwich'. Next week, we will be making our own inventions, just like Izzy Gizmo, and we will be writing instructions for them. Please bring in any junk modelling that you have at home. Thank you :)
Science - Materials
In Year 2, we have been explore materials. We have been sorting materials in different ways, looking at their properties. We had a go at talking about which object was the 'odd one out' and gave a reason for our answer.
