Working Hard

Year 2 have had another busy week! In Literacy, we have been thinking about what we need to do to improve our writing; similes and adjectives, correct punctuation and verbs and adverbs. We used the clocks to help us solve time word problems in Maths.

Night Topic Day

User Rating:  / 2

What a fabulous day Year 2 have had! This morning we had a visit from the ThinkTank Planetarium. We looked at the constellations in the night sky and then went in a Space Ship to travel up to our Solar System. We looked at each of the different planets and found out what they are like. Apparently Earth is sometimes called the 'Goldilocks' planet because it is just right!. If it was any closer to the sun, it would be too hot and if it was any further away from the sun, it would be too cold. It is also the only planet to have liquid water.

This afternoon we also had a visit from the 'Animal Man'. He showed us lots of different nocturnal animals. It was a great day!

Year 2 have had a lovely first week back at school after the holiday! Each class spent an afternoon in the Art room creating their own pot, using clay, as part of our Night topic work. Can you guess what they are?

We are really looking forward to our special 'Night Topic Day' next Wednesday when we are having visits from ThinkTank planetarium AND an 'Animal Man' who will be showing us different nocturnal animals.

World Book Day 2015

Year 2 had a fabulous day celebrating World Book Day on Thursday. We enjoyed shared reading with Year 6, visiting the book swap shop and of course dressing as our favourite book characters. We also took part in 'DEAR'. When we heard the claxon we had to Drop Everything And Read, it was fantastic!

Year 2 Choir

Today, children from Year 2, performed in an annual music concert at Sutton Town Hall. Children sang for a sold out crowd! The first choir sang songs from the musicals and the second choir performed a piece entitled 'The Toyshop'. All the children sang beautifully and behaved well back stage. Well done Year 2!

This week, as part of our science topic 'Rocks and Soils', we made our very own fossils! Fossils are the remains of dead animals or plants which have been preserved in the soil by natural processes. We enjoyed going to the art room and using clay to create our own ammonite fossils.

Springtime Spanish

User Rating:  / 1

Everyone is very much enjoying their Spanish lessons at the moment. So much so that some pupils want to carry on with the activities at home. Therefore, here are some links that you might like to investigate:

Year 3 have enjoyed colour mixing with El juego de los colores.

Year 4 have enjoyed singing Los meses del año.

Year 2 have been pretending to go to the fruit shop and enjoy dancing along to El baile de las frutas.

Year 5 have been working hard on numbers , firstly to 30, then to 100 and then to 1000 (and beyond!)

And Year 6 have been using their paper folding skills as well as their linguistic skills; more of that in a later post!
