Year 2 have been very busy this week exploring and measuring length. 

We have linked our maths learning with the book that we have started to read- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 

The children measured chocolate bars using cubes and centimeters! We wished they were longer! 

In the classroom they compared the lengths of their arms and legs to their friends'.

On the playground we discovered who could run the furthest in 3 seconds, who could throw the furthest and who could jump the longest. 

We also linked our maths with Science. We were investigating the length of snakes and how long our vivariums should be to keep them safe. 

We found the longest vivarium we needed was more than 100cm! 

What a busy week of maths it has been! 

 

 

 

Year 2 went to the offsite Forest School for the first time last week! 

2AD were the first to venture off site but all of the year 2s will soon follow. 

We walked to Glamis Meadow on a drizzly morning with bright smiling faces! 

When in the forest, the children were shown their safe boundary and ate their snacks. 

The children were free to explore the forest searching for different kinds of leaves and trees. 

They then used the trees to build houses and gym equipment! 

We were even greeted by two friendly dogs! 

Year 2 have started to read George's Marvellous Medicine. 

They met George's grizzly Grandma! What a wicked old woman she is! 

After becoming Grandma in drama and thinking about how she looks and what kind of person she is, the children wrote a character profile about her. 

We all realised how lucky we are not to have a Grandma like her!

We have been exploring fractions in year 2.

We have looked at different shapes and even found mixed fractions!

Some of us used pizza (not edible, unfortunately!) to find different fractions. 

 

 

DSCF0448In Year 2 we have been historians! We have been researching information about World War 2. 

We have learnt about evacuees, the Blitz and how people kept themselves safe in shelters! 

In DT we designed, made and then evaluated Anderson Shelters using different materials. We even made vegetable patches to camoflage them!
