Summer 2 – Week 2

Stars of the week: Ella and Amelia

In Maths we have been learning about different measurements. We used balancing scales to compare different mass and tried to find objects that made up specific mass. We have been working hard to read scales and have been using our 2, 5 and 10 times tables to help us.

In Science, we have been continuing to look at plants. On Wednesday we went to Redcross Gardens and using our rulers, we measured the size of plants, and used magnifying glasses to observe them in extra detail. Super Scientific Skills Year 2!

We also really enjoyed celebrating PSHE Day last Friday. We drew self-portraits which Miss McNamara is going to put up in her room. Excellent work year 2!

Summer 1 – Week 4

Stars of the week: Whole of Class 2!

We had a fantastic trip to the Tower of London. Class 2 went through their knight training and Sir Robin decided they would all make excellent knights. Despite the pouring rain, Class 2 kept their spirits high and learnt so many interesting facts about the tower. Well done!

In English, we wrote persuasive letters which convinced the National Knights Organisation that we had what it takes to be a knight. We also wrote detailed recounts of our trip. Well done Class 2 for working so hard on your writing.
