    Science

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In Science, Year 2 completed a science investigation after watching the world record holders for long jump! They were amazed by how far all these awesome athletes could jump- nearly 9m! We talked about whether it is long legs that make you jump further? The children thought it was down to practice and exercise. We then measured our legs and did some jumping. We found out that it isn't always the children who have the longest legs that can jump the furthest.

    For our extended write this week, we looked at everyday awesome people: lorry drivers. We talked about how they deliver our food and medicine and how hard it must be to do this job. The children then created posters which I am entering in a competition run by Cullimore.

    Art

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In art this week, we looked at the artist Giacometti and his sculpture. We then made our own foil figure sculptures of awesome little people. This was much harder than it sounds as foil is tricky to work with. The children did a great job and they look amazing!

    Reading!

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have been reading 'I wish I was a Unicorn' this week. When I asked the children what Mucky the horse has learnt by the end of the story the replies were gorgeous. The children really understood the message that it is what is inside that counts and Mucky should be himself. Alfie even knew we had read this book as it links to our topic focus, diversity!

    Year 2 are learning about stories from other cultures and we have started this off by watching the story Zahra on Literacy Shed. Zahra spends all day collecting water in order to help her tree grow so she can get some shade. She travels back and forth to the water pump but to no avail. The tree won't grow. It is not until a bead of sweat falls on the roots that the tree springs forth and grows protectively in order to protect her from the sun. Year 2 completed a story mountain to think about the structure of the story. We came up with actions and told the story altogether. We also mimed the story in groups. They really enjoyed this and worked well together.

    Topic Hook

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    To launch our topic on Diversity we had an afternoon of visiting other classes and completing fun activities and games. We focused on personal diversity with perspectives, and explored what it is like to live without different senses and abilities. It was so lovely to move around the school and have different teachers. We had lots of fun too.

    Computing & History

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 have been researchers this week. We used the laptops to research awesome people from the past and present. We found out about people who have faced difficulties in their lives such as Lily Rice or Bethany Hamilton, and are still living full successful lives. Well done on great computing skills!
