We had a great day at Warwick Castle learning about the first castle that was built under the reign of King William I.
SATs are Finished and we made smoothies!
SATs Revision can be fun!
Pirate experiences- describing a setting
We enjoyed baking bread as part of our Great Fire of London topic yesterday...fortunately our 'bakery' didn't end up in flames!
World Book Day
We enjoyed coming to school dressed as our favourite book characters for World Book Day. During the week we focussed on the book 'Pirate School, Just a Bit of Wind' by Jeremy Strong. Some of us had a go at walking the plank and hunting for treasure!
We had great fun measuring the ingredients ready for making momos as part of our Nepal topic. They tasted yummy!
We have enjoyed sharing our favourite books in year 2. Keep bringing them in so we can get to know more great authors and texts!
Our Awesome City...Birmingham
Year 2 were fantastic representatives of Mapledene on our trip to the city centre. They loved spotting landmarks and visiting the museum! We look forward to chocolate and custard tasting as these are two things that Birmingham is famous for!
Check out our performance poetry!
Mini-beasts and micro-habitats
We had fun investigating the micro-habitats on the school grounds. We looked under logs and found that slugs, spiders, worms and woodlice like living in damp, dark places.
Year 2 have made a great start this week in maths by recognising the place value of 2 digit numbers.
What is Birmingham famous for?
