    Year 2 have been learning to tell the time. We have revised o'clock and half past from Year 1 and then learnt about quarter to and quarter past all using an analogue clock. Any help at home with this would be greatly appreciated!

    Geography

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In geography, Year 2 have walked around the school grounds using a map and located different areas. We then looked beyond the school grounds at the different types of land use. We talked about how different schools may have more buildings around them or be more rural. We also looked at different features of Berkeley and sorted them depending on whether they are human or physical.

    English

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Our English so far has focused on this great short story on The Literacy Shed: https://www.literacyshed.com/caterpillar-shoes.html The children have thought of new animals in their stories and something they could give away. I absolutely love their ideas! For example, Star's idea is for a giraffe to give away lots of scarfs to other animals. Cool!

    Art: Dyeing fabric.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Year 2 learnt how to fold, twist and scrunch fabric and hold it in place with bands and pegs. We then put the fabric into dye to see what patterns it would create!

    Computing

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Happy St Patrick's Day! Year 2 used the laptops to research why some people celebrate this day. The children were asked to work in teams to research the day and then create a poster. This was a challenge! They then presented their findings to the class. They all found out he was a patron saint of Ireland and some even found out that he drove snakes out of Ireland!

    RE

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In RE we have been learning to reflect and express our feelings when a loved one dies and how we can remember them. The children spoke very sensitively about their experiences and shared their ideas and thoughts. We had lots of discussions about respecting each other and how it is okay to have different ideas and beliefs. We have then learnt about the Easter story and shared our ideas about it.

    Guided Reading

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have started our whole class guided reading using the story Happy Mouseday by Dick King-Smith. The children are being really confident reading out loud in class and are enjoying the story. My apologies if any children really want a mouse for a pet now!
