Plants

In Science, we launched our new topic ‘Plants’. In our first lesson, we had to identify what wide ranges of objects were. We all guessed what they could be but only a couple of us realised that they were all seeds! The Seed sorting activity got us all working collaboratively to observe and describe the seeds.

We had to decide on our own criteria for grouping and sorting them. A lot of the groups sorted by size or shape. We then delved deeper by using magnifying glasses to scrutinise things we might have originally missed. We were then able to group them by pattern, texture and even which, under close inspection, were multi –colour!

Bee-bot

Year 2 are designing an aerial view road mat for their bee-bot to travel along. They need to calculate the distance the bee-bot needs to travel, how to change direction and write the algorithm. As part of this project the children will have to test their algorithm, debug it and rerun the program.

Year 2 have been looking at the work of Kandinsky in art and learning about the artist.

Kandinsky was born in Russia. He grew up in the city of Odessa.

He played the Cello and Piano.

He was a teacher and became an artist at the age of 30.

He didn’t paint real things, this kind of painting is called abstract expressionism.

Kandinsky used colours and shapes to express his feelings. His favourite shapes were triangles, squares and circles.

The class have interrupted Kandinsky concentric circles

Welcome to year 2.

Only a few days in and already we have achieved so much.

We have looked at what we can already do and written some sentences about this. In keeping with growth mind set we then talked about what we can’t do YET, and wrote about what we would like to be able to do.

In computing we have used a paint package to draw pictures ourselves and practised our mouse control.

In maths we tackled thisproblem:
