We have had an exciting week in Year 2. We started off the week with a fantastic launch to our new topic ‘Land Ahoy’. We had a wonderful workshop with Miss Helen from Music and Movement all about pirates and did some dance and drama. We did lots of different pirate activities throughout the day including making telescopes, porthole art, making pirate hats and walking the plank!
In English this week we have started looking at our new ‘Power of Reading’ text. We are keeping the title to ourselves for now. The children have done some excellent work on inferring from a picture and writing instructions to find gold.
In Maths we have been learning about position and direction and guiding our friends round different routes using the language forwards, backwards, left, right, clockwise and anticlockwise, ¼ and ½ turn.
In our topic work we have made some amazing detailed maps to show a journey to find gold. In Science we have investigated different materials to see which float and sink and choose the best one to make a boat. We have really enjoyed using our investigative skills. We have also learnt about the story of Jonah and the big fish and made a story map of it in RE.
A few quick reminders….
Home learning is coming home today.
Please can we remind parents that children need to have their reading records in school at all times so that we can record details about your child’s reading.
Don’t forget it’s Sports Day on Monday. The children are really excited and have been working hard practising their races.
We are really looking forward to Dance Showcase next week at the open. A reminder for the children taking part, please could we have any costumes in school as soon as possible and also £1 for the bow ties.
Have a lovely weekend,
The Year 2 team.
