A journey back in time!

Year 2 spent last week travelling back in time to find out about why many people light bonfires on the 5th November. As part of our famous people topic the children learnt about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot! Writing recounts, newspaper articles and descriptions we were all glad to land back in the twenty first century and escape the Tower of London!

Forces!

The children spent the afternoon on Thursday investigating how different forces can change the shape of different materials! Pushing, squashing, stretching, bending we tried them all!

What a find!

The children were amazed when Grace brought in a huge wasps nests that she had found in her Grandad’s garden. The hexagon pattern made in nature amazed us all!

Material madness!

Year 2 have been going mad on materials, making, designing, sorting, testing and using them all! They ended the madness using Venn diagrams to put the classroom and its things in some kind of order!

The lost hat stories.

Year 2 have spent this week looking at different stories about lost hats. Using a story map they have created their own lost hat stories.

Getting to grips with grammar!

Year 2 spent some time this week searching for nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs in their writing. We collected them on post it notes and shared them, helping each other to make our writing more interesting!

 

Holiday hat disaster for Hamilton!

Year 2 had to come to Hamilton’s rescue on Thursday when he tore his umbrella hat. Paper, plastic or fabric which material would be most suitable for the job of patching up the tear? The children enjoyed finding out even if they did get a little bit wet!

KS1 trip to Eureka!

 

Hamilton and his hats!

Year 2 have spent this week describing familiar characters. Determined, brave, patient and kind were just a few of the character traits of our favourite pig Hamilton.

Not forgetting our expanded noun phrases we wrote some fantastic character descriptions.

Mixing art and maths as Year 2 goes numberbond crazy!

This week Year 2 have been looking at number bonds. In art the children made visual representation of number bonds to help with their quick recall.
