Teacher – Miss Younge
Teaching Assistant- Mrs Singh, Mrs Moss
We have been very lucky in year 2 as we have had a student teacher working in our classroom. Her name is Miss Boardman and we think after teaching us she will become a very good teacher indeed!
We are beginning to enjoy our “Wild About Animals” topic which began by reading the book Paddington Bear by Michael Bond. This led us on to researching and writing about bears. We then wrote a non-chronological report about an animal of our choice. We learnt about lots of animals that we had not even heard of. We will continue this topic into the Summer term as we will be looking at different habitats.
In Computing this term, year 2 have been learning all about branching diagrams. They have used thier learning to sort animals, shapes, aliens and even types of chocolate! They then created a whole-class branching diagram on the computer using textease Branch.
In Science our topic has been plants and we’ve learnt lots about them! We went on a Spring walk and spotted signs of plant growth, we’ve looked at different types of flowers and trees and wrote descriptive sentences about their appearances. Then we looked at the process of germination and what we should expect to see when a plant starts to grow, we even planted our own bean seeds to see it happening in class! This led us onto understanding what a plant needs to grow healthy and strong, as well as the jobs of each part of the plant. We’re now plant experts!
