In English this week, we have been describing dragons and designing our own. We have drafted descriptive poems about our dragons and will be editing and publishing them next week.
In Maths, we have been looking at number and place value. We have been exploring the different ways of representing numbers with dienes. Next week we will continue representing numbers to 100 and partitioning numbers into their tens and ones.
Last Friday, we completed our motivational posters. These will help inspire us throughout the year, when we need to show resilience in our learning.
Year 2 have had another wonderful week of learning. This week we have been finishing off all of our topic work and recapping our brilliant learning. We have written up some instruction work for a display on making a fruit salad. Well done Year 2 – you have done an outstanding job! And a massive thank you Porsha for making the board display look so wonderful.
Here are some pictures of us making this healthy and tasty treat!
Yesterday we made flags for our Sports Day which will take place later on today! We are very excited about it and we are looking forward to showing off our sporting skills! Please check our blog later on for photos of this.
This half term in Science, we are learning all about Plants. We have begun our topic by using our observation skills and setting up an experiment to investigate what makes the ideal growing conditions. We have planted 4 sunflower plants, 4 spinach plants and 4 daffodil plants and put them around the classroom with different variations.
Once we had planted our daffodils, our spinach and our sunflowers we then had to decide where to put them in the classroom for the best position for our experiment.
Now we need to keep an eye on our plants and remember to water the plants that need watering! We will let you know the results of our investigation. Great Science skills Year 2!

Don’t forget to keep practising the songs for our collective worship. We will be recording it on Tuesday so please make sure you have learnt all of the words.
This half term in Geography we are learning all about mapping skills. We began last week by using Google Maps to find local locations in London. We then found these landmarks on an aerial map. We discussed what it meant to have a ‘bird’s eye view.’ A bird’s eye view means what an object or a landmark looks like from above. We then drew our own ‘bird’s eye view’ of our classroom on a map. It was very funny to think about what the shape should be for a ball, or even a door! Great mapping skills Year 2! Now I can always use your maps to find my missing orange pens…
Also this week we have began practising for our collective worship. Please remember to practise your lines! I have uploaded the music for our songs to help with this.
