What we have been up to recently:
Have a look at the photos below to see some of the learning we have already completed in Year 2.
Firstly, we had a strange chest that appeared in our classroom and we had to predict who we thought it belonged to by looking inside at the objects. Can you spot some of the objects we found inside the chest? Who did you think it belonged too?
In Maths, we started our learning thinking about the easiest way of counting lots of numbers of straws. We used our resilience and co-operation skills to try lots of different ways of counting large numbers. Which was was the best?
In Science, we went outside to investigate different objects. We were sorting the objects into different groups. Can you remember how we sorted the objects?
Year 2's amazing learning:
We have been investigating which type of money holder is the best to store the pirate's treasure in in DT. The children have loved designing their money holder and even practised their sewing skills ready to make pirate purses to store their gold coins. We were amazed by the children's determination and resilience while practising their sewing. Well done, Year 2!
In Maths, we have been continuing our learning on place value and thinking about the < and > symbols. We have also been thinking about adding together numbers. How many tens and ones are in the numbers below?
56 27 91
In PE, we have been thinking of pirate dance moves ready to perform a class pirate dance and we have also been practising our song in Music. Click the link below to hear the song at home too - can you remember our dance moves?
Also, don't forget to have a look at some of our photos below too.
Our Pirate Day was a huge success with lots of pirate activities. We must say, that the children made an excellent pirate crew and their outfits were fantastic. Have a look to see what we got up to.
We also went on a pirate adventure to find treasure. On our adventure we:
hopped across stepping stones
swam through a river
walked carefully through a forest
climbed a steep hill
explored a dark, scary cave
