Autumn 1 Week 4 (w/b 26.9.22)

Well I don't think anyone in Robin class can quite that another week has gone by. We continue to have such fun in all of our learning. We are coming towards the end of our learning journey based on 'The Bridge', we have our own version of the story to write and then we move on to a new story. In maths at the moment we are learning all about money; to recognise the value of each coin and how we can make the same amount but with different coins. In science we have tested the suitability of different materials to discover which would make the best water proof coat - next step, testing that idea. Within our geography topic, Ghana, we have used paper to make a traditional Ghanaian home. We learnt that in Ghana a lot of extended family live within one home. The children weren't so keen on the idea of sharing everything! Another fun packed, busy week in year 2. Well done everyone, have a lovely weekend.

Autumn 1 Week 3 (w/b 19.9.22)

Another incredible week in year 2 has flown by. We have been very busy; we have been learning how to compare different lengths and numbers in maths. We then learnt how to accurately use a ruler to measure the different lengths.

We are continuing our learning journey in English, all about the bridge. We have developed speaking roles for the characters and have learnt how to express what the characters are doing in both the past tense and the present tense.

Autumn 1 Week 2 (w/b 12.9.22)

Well, we just continue to have so much fun in all of our learning. We started a new learning journey in English, called 'The Bridge'. It's about two animals both trying to cross a very high, rickety bridge; neither of the animals understand 'teamwork' and so the crossing of the bridge does not go very well. So we could experience what this might be like, we used the wobble bridge on the adventure play ground. We had so much fun trying to work out how we could get past each without falling off- hilarious.

Our maths learning has still be focusing on securing our understanding of place value and number representation. To challenge us, Mrs Cox sets us challenges, we have a cool chili challenge, a spicy chili challenge and a super spicy challenge, we love the challenges.

We have continued to learn about waterproof materials and discovered that it was Charles Macintosh who invented the first waterproof material and that is where the name for a macintosh coat comes from.

PE has been great fun, we have learnt some new gymnastic moves, how to catch a ball correctly and some enrichment games, to help us with games we can play at play time and lunch time.

We are reading some books together in class, one of them is called 'Diary of a Wombat' which makes us laugh every time we read it and the other is called 'Saving Winslow'. 'Saving Winslow' is about a baby donkey who is being cared for by a young boy called Louie, who is not very good at looking after things, so we can't wait to see what happens.

Well done to Robin class for another great week.

Autumn 1 Week 1 (w/b 5.9.22) ~ Our First week in Robin Class

What an incredible first week in year 2 the children have had. We have had great fun with our learning this week; in English we are reading a story called 'The Lion Inside', we have used drama to portray some of the animals, pretended to be the mouse (one of the main characters) and produced some fantastic writing and work for our learning wall.

In maths, we have shown Mrs Cox how super our number knowledge is. We have learnt all about place value and the value of each digit in a two digit number.

In science we are learning all about every day materials and their suitability for certain purposes. We are learning what makes a good waterproof material with a view to making a waterproof coat.

We have started learning all about Ghana and comparing it to the United Kingdom. We know where Ghana is located, the meaning of the colours in the Ghanaian flag and we have begun to study a Ghanaian artist by the name of Wisdom Kudowor.

The children have worked so hard and earned themselves many treats out of the 'dippy box', happy days.
