Wow what an amazing class they are! They have come back to school after an extra-long holiday enthusiastic and keen to learn!

We have been doing handwriting, phonics, guided reading, music, Maths, writing, geography, science, PE, RE and PHSE. Wow, what a lot of work! 

 

In geography we have learnt about where we live and looked at maps. 

In science we have harvested the onions and the potatoes that we planted in March and we learned about all the different types of foods that you can cook with potatoes. We cooked and ate them too.

 

We also tasted healthy and unhealthy snacks in our writing lessons when we were learning all about the power of adjectives. We used the snacks to inspire us to think about describing, smell, taste, touch and colour.

In RE we have been learning about God the creator of the world and spent an afternoon creating our own things out of construction toys. We then chatted about how it felt to be a creator.

In Computing this term, year 2 have been building on our word processing skills including: Using the shift key to type capital letters, typing using both hands, changing the way our text looks and touch typing skills!

On Wednesday, Year 2 enjoyed a History of Transport Experience Day as part of their topic. The children looked at past and present transport. The activities included making a timeline of how transport has changed, making hot air balloons out of paper Mache and longboats used by the Vikings – they even designed their own shields!

 

What a busy half term!
