    Computing

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 began to use coding on Purple Mash to make planes move on an airport. They had to choose the correct instructions, algorithms, to make the planes do what they wanted and solve the challenges.

    DT

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Last week, in DT we investigated a split pin horse and designed our own split pin animals that we will make into puppets. We could design any animal that helped in WW1 such as a bird, horse, dog and even elephant! This week, we have begun to make the product by cutting and joining materials with split pins. It was tricky but Year 2 did well!

    Reading At Home

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    60% of Year 2 read at least 3 times last week. Well done everyone. Please remember how important reading at home is. It is surprising how much impact reading little and often at home will have. This will help your children to make better progress in their learning across all subjects. Here are some top tips if you are finding it tricky: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbxby9q#:~:text=Reading%2C%20being%20read%20to%2C%20and%20sharing%20books%20in,and%20are%20more%20likely%20to%20do%20well%20academically.

    Science: Material Investigation

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We completed our first investigation this week answering the question, What would make the best material for a waterproof coat? This was after learning that the first WW1 uniforms were made of wool and cloth! The children poured the same amount of water over beakers with different materials covering them and then measured how much water had been let through.

    DT

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 are planning on making our own stick puppets. To help us to do this we first looked at how other split pin animals are made and made a split horse from a template. We could then choose from an elephant, dog, bird or horse as these are animals that helped in WW1 to design a plan.

    Maths: Partitioning

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In maths this week we continued to look at place value and partitioning. The children have been great at partitioning numbers into tens and ones. We then looked at different ways to partition the same number. This was much more challenging so any help at home would be fantastic.

    PSHE Worry Monsters

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In PSHE, we chatted about what someone could be worried about when coming into a new class for the first time. The children spoke about being around lots of people again, COVID and shared their worries really well. We read a story about The Huge Bag of Worries which gives the message that the best thing to do with worries is to share them! We then created worry monster with worries in their bellies.
