YYear 2 – Spring 1 2018.


We started the short “Making me the best I can be” topic with a lovely share session with our parents. After discussing famous people who have inspired us, we all considered our own aspirations for the future. We made beautiful hanging mobiles that showed how we will use the Learning Heroes skills to help us achieve our dreams. In later literacy lessons we went on to write our own poetry about what we want to be when we grow up and then performed them to an audience.


Our second topic for this term is Stormy Seas. So far, we have learnt the fictional Storm Whale story and have written our own versions of the introduction of the story. We improved the original text by including lots of description to our sentences!


In maths, we have all developed a better understanding of multiplication and division. We have been learning how to draw arrays to help us solve calculations and word problems. We are all working hard to count forwards and backwards in 2, 5 and 10 and then learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. In Art we have created beautiful stormy sea paintings in the style of Turner. In Science, we have learnt to name and compare a variety of common animals and structure. In computing, we searched for information on local floods. In PE, we have completed a unit on Games and have also had a morning workshop with a coach to learn how to play Futsal.


Year 2 – Spring 2 2018.


Next half term we are looking forward to continuing our Storm Seas topic. We will be learning about local floods of 1953 and 2013 and this will be reinforced with a trip to the beach to look at flood defences. We will link this trip to our science learning, with a workshop at the Sea-life centre. We will be writing a recount of the trip in the first person, to explain what we did on the trip and what we learnt. In Science and Design and Technology lessons, we will make a flood barrier and then test it! In Literacy and History lessons, we will be learning the story of Grace Darling and will then be writing a recount of her experiences that fateful night! We will create a Stop Motion Animation film of the story in Computing lessons. We will also be learning about the lifecycle of animals and plants in science. At the end of the topic we are going to have a fun workshop with some local professionals explaining how the public are helped in the event of a flood.
