Forgiveness

The children  of year 2 have been thinking about what they would like

to ask forgiveness for and how they are going to

change their actions. They wrote these on a leaf to

 symbolise ‘turning over a new leaf’.

Year 2’s Christmas Experience

We enjoyed the wonderful experience of visiting the church to hear about the nativity story from the perspectives of the three kings, the three shepherds and Mary and Joseph.  It was lovely to see the children engaged and developing a deeper understanding of the story.  Afterwards, the children hung up paper angels on the surrounding trees on the church grounds.

It’s ‘mass’-ively fun in maths this week

In Maths, Year 2 have been comparing an assortment of objects in the classroom by measuring their mass using scales and using the language of ‘more than’, ‘less than’ and ‘the same as’.  They recorded their findings using the <, > and = symbols.

Suffixes -ful and -less

In English, Year 2 have been learning about the suffixes -ful and -less.  They sorted out different verbs and nouns into groups where -ful, -less or both can be added to them.  Do you agree with how they sorted out the words ?

Floating like a balloon

In P.E, Year 2 have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the movements of a balloon.  They watched closely how a balloon inflates, deflates and floats in the air. They then used their bodies to act out the movements.

We are living in a material world.

In Science, Year 2 have been investigating the properties of materials.  This week’s experiment looked at the absorbency of different types of paper.  Prior to the experiment, children made predictions and talked about what makes a fair test.

We remember, we rejoice and we share…

This week we had our first, long awaited church service to celebrate the harvest festival.  It was wonderful to see the children enjoying the experience of singing hymns and contributing their work as part of the morning.  Some of our Year 2 children were able to share their fantastic harvest poems and then later Reverend Sarah reminded us of the importance of sharing.

Make 100 !

In Maths, the children have been exploring how to regroup ten ones for one ten using base-10 equipment by playing the game ‘Make 100’.  In pairs, they took turns to roll a ten-sided die and place that number of ‘ones’ cubes on a tens frame handout.  They rolled the dice again and once one tens frame was full, pupils regrouped ten ones for a ten rod. They continued to roll the dice until they made 100 !

Throwing and Catching

In P.E. this week, we have continued to practise our throwing and catching skills.   We enjoyed playing games using hoops and making up our own games with throwing a ball in a different direction and trying to catch it.  The children used their growth mindset to challenge themselves to improve their own personal scores.
