Year 2 have been working really hard this week. In Numeracy we have looked at 2D and 3D shapes and identified properties they have! In Literacy this week we have been making jam sandwiches and then writing the instructions for how to make the sandwich. I think we have some budding chefs in the classes!!!
On Tuesday at WCPS it was 'Black History Day' and Year 2 looked at the work of Benjamin Zephaniah. The children produced some excellent fact-files and poems in the morning. In the afternoon, the children worked in groups to produce a performance to one of his poems. Their work was fantastic!
Have a great week off,
The Year 2 Team

In Year 2 we have been enjoying reading books by our 'Author of the week'. 2MW have been looking at the author Eric Carle and finding out interesting facts about him. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has eaten its way into the hearts of literally millions of children all over the world and has been translated into more than 50 languages and sold over 33 million copies. 2HB have been finding out about A.A. Milne. Miss Breeze brought in her huge Eeyore from home to look after the book. Can you guess what stories A.A. Milne is famous for writing?

Year 2 are still really enjoying our Pirates topic. We have been learning a sea shanty as part of our music lessons. These are the lyrics:
The pirate ship is coming,
We know it’s on its way,
The pirate ship is coming,
We’ve seen it in the bay.
A skull and crossbones on the mast,
A wild and noisy crew:
The pirate ship is coming
And it's after me and you!
[Click here] to see all the lyrics and listen to the song.

The children in Year 2 are continuing to work really hard in class. In Maths, they have been learning subtraction this week using the number square and number line and have really understood this. In Literacy, we have started to look at Traditional Tales and the children had lots of fun role-playing the characters from Rumplestiltskin. In Science, we found out what happens to our heart rate when we exercise! It was fun to see the children running, walking and performing star jumps in the playground.

We still love our Pirate topic and have been enjoying spending time in our Pirate Ship role plays. Don't the pictures look great! We have been doing lots of Pirate themed art work ready for our Year 2 display in the Acorns hall. Make sure you have a look if you go past it. In Literacy we have had fun writing our own nonsense poems and we have been adding using a number line in Maths.

This week in Year 2 we have started our very exciting Topic for the half term on Pirates. The children have looked at 2 pirates: The 'evil' Blackbeard and a female pirate called Anne Bonny. They have had great fun finding out about them and created a wanted poster to capture Blackbeard. Some super work was produced!
In Literacy, we have been writing humerous poems on Spaghetti, thinking about silly words to describe spaghetti.
We have started our Science Topic on Health and Growth and looked at the different food groups! The children are now aware that they have to have lots of fruit and vegetables and can only have a few fatty foods and chocolate.

Year 2 have had a great start to the year. All the children have settled into their new classes really well and enjoyed their first week. We have made a start to our Pirates topic and look forward to playing in our Pirate Ship role play next week. We have all been given a special job and have thought of rules for our class. Well done Year 2!
