Year 2 news...
Y2 Gunpowder Plot!
The Year 2 classes have created dances to tell the story of the Gunpowder Plot and did some acting to become more familiar with the order of events.
Year 2 are thoroughly enjoying trialing a new Reading scheme called ‘Bug Club’. We use the iPads or Laptops to access the books electronically. We like the interactive questions that you can find when there is a Bug icon. We did find it was slightly tricky using a non-fiction book where we wanted to read it in a different order but couldn’t do this easily.
Thank you to all the parents who came to our Welcome Meeting. In case you missed it or you’d like to recap on the information here is the information we gave.
We have had a great morning today completing some Topic and Maths work. We went outside to do a traffic survey. We had to make a Tally Chart of the vehicles that came past in 5 minutes. Then we went back to class to create a Block Graph and answer some questions about the vehicles we had seen.
Year 2 became Maths Investigators today – we had to try to use digit cards 1 – 9 to complete three number sentences. We had to use our Mersey Park Mindset to keep trying even when our efforts didn’t work out.
Year 2 enjoyed their topic day learning ‘How to make a Moving Vehicle’. Every child created a unique vehicle with moving wheels and decorated to match their design. Keep watching for the photographs taken and instructions they have written!
In Science we have continued our ‘Changing Shape’ topic and followed these steps to make our own putty. We know putty is a flexible material which can be twisted, squashed and stretched!
Researching Modes of Transport
As part of our ‘Transport’ topic we have researched different modes of transport and gathered our findings in a PicCollage on the iPads. There are so many ways in which we can travel!
Our Transport Topic
On Monday the children brought in their favourite moving vehicle to celebrate the start of our transport topic. They showed their vehicles and discussed why it is their favourite.
Year 2 have started their ‘Movement’ topic in Science. They have enjoyed experimenting with slime to find out how far it will stretch with the force of gravity.
