    LP Why we have seasons.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    One of our first LPs this term has been to understand why we have seasons and what parts of the globe are hot and cold. We learnt that it is the tilt of the Earth's AXIS is the most important reason why seasons occur. We have hot summers and cold winters because of the tilt of the Earth's axis. The tilt of the Earth means the Earth will lean towards the Sun (Summer) or lean away from the Sun (Winter) 6 months later.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    The children enjoyed making a plant today and labeling the parts of seed, flower, leaf, stem and roots. We learnt what each part does and will learn lots more in the next few weeks.

    2 x table

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have begun to learn our 2 times table this week. We have learnt to draw arrays, count on our fingers or try to learn them by singing and chanting. Any practise at home would be great please. If any children would like to be brave enough to chant/sing them in front of the class they will definitely move up our ladder!

    LP We have been learning to stitch and glue.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    The children have been so creative this week and have all made superb stockings. They cut out the stocking shapes from a template and sewed the two pieces of felt together. They independently cut what they wanted to stick onto their stockings and then used glue to stick them onto the stockings. We were so impressed with their skills and creativity. We think that they look great!

    This week's maths has moved onto division. We have been learning to make a division number sentence by seeing how items have been grouped and have solved division problems too! For example, the picture shows 12 divided by 4 equals 3.

    Keeping Safe Online

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    No doubt some of the children may have asked for some form of technology that links to the internet for Christmas such as a tablet or games console. While their device will provide them with hours of entertainment, it can also present new risks. This is a great website if you need any help keeping your child safe online: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/articles/Parental-controls/

    Science

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    This week year 2 have been continuing their learning about electricity. They really enjoy this topic and are absorbing a lot of information as it is something they use everyday. This week we looked at how to make a circuit that uses electricity from a battery. We looked at different components, such as bulbs, buzzers and motors. They children then had a go at creating a variety of circuits in small groups. They were fantastic at diagnosing circuit problems and experimenting safely with the equipment.
