In science, we are looking at animals including humans. We looked at similarities and differences between adults and babies of the same species, and then planned some questions we could ask about pregnancy, babies and toddlers.

On Monday, we were lucky enough to welcome five visitors to school who were able to answer our questions – three mums and two youngsters! Year 2 we SOOOOO polite and well behaved, and asked our visitors lots of sensible, thoughtful questions  – thanks for coming mums and well done Y2!

2J Forest School

It’s 2J’s turn for some Forest School action! Mr H took the children out for their first session, and it was fun with a capital F! It was a beautiful, brisk morning and the class showed loads of amazing skills – teamwork, communication and creativity. Bring on next week!

London’s burning… fetch the engines!

Today, we used our knowledge of mixing primary colours to create the back drop to our Great Fire of London sky! Can you believe that our masterpieces were made only using yellow, red, white and black?! We practised bleeding the colours into one another to create a more realistic background.

Look how effective our blazing backgrounds are!

Year 2 are artists!

In our first session of art week, we looked at colour! We learned difference between primary and secondary colours and observed how artists use colour in their work. After experimenting with this, we made our own colour wheels.

During our second session, we learned how to create different shades of blue by adding white or black to it. We realised that by using just three colours, we had created 7 shades of blue and if we had more time we could have been able to create more!

Finding Change

In year 2 we have been looking at money and this week we have explored how we can give change. We have used our subtraction skills to be a shopper and a shopkeeper and find the correct coins for change.

Building bridges

Continuing our journey into all things ‘material’ based in science, we decided to construct some bridges and consider the properties of materials while doing so. Each team had a limited amount of paper, cardboard, sellotape, string and scissors. Alongside the resources, they had 5 tokens that could purchase more of each – some teams splashed out on sellotape, some on paper, some kept the tokens ‘just in case’.

What we witnessed was an astounding display of communication, teamwork, perseverance and creativity. All the children were engaged and they just had a really great time!
