Autumn Term

Week 2

A very big well done to our first Star Student our 2021/22. You have worked so hard this week and made a fantastic start to Year 2.

Star Student 17.9.21

Wow! It has been such an amazing week in Year 2 and everyone has worked so hard. In English, we started a first text of the year- The Queen's Hat by Steve Antony. We really enjoyed seeing all the famous London landmarks in the story as the Queen chased her hat across the city! We made our predictions about the text before thinking about adjectives to describe the illustrations. 


In Maths, we continued our consolidation of place value in numbers up to 50. We have been using a range of mathematical equipment to investigate different ways of representing these numbers.


We started our 'Wild Weather' topic in Science and watched a BBC weather forecast. We thought about the language that the weather forecaster used and wrote our own weather reports. We made our own weather symbols to use when we present and record our weather forecasts. 


Week 1

The children have had a fantastic first week in their new classroom! In Maths, we started our first topic of the year and have been revising and consolidating knowledge of numbers up to 20.

The children have been using a range of mathematical equipment to represent numbers up to 20, for example Base 10, tens frames and counters.


  We also really enjoyed getting the paints and brushes out and starting some artwork for our new class display. We can't wait to share more photos on the blog when it is finished!


 We made the most of the beautiful weather by getting outside and creating some nature art! We looked at the artist Andy Goldsworthy and the features of his amazing nature art. The children really enjoyed gathering leaves, stones and sticks to create their own Goldsworthy inspired artwork.
