Welcome to Year 2!15-09-2017 | 15:31:07 | Comments Off on Welcome to Year 2!

Well done everyone for settling into Year 2 so well. It has been a very busy couple of weeks with lots of new routines to learn as well as introducing our new topic ‘What makes Britain great?’

Thank you for sending in your photographs of your holidays. There is still time to send one in if you have not done so already. Well done as well, to all of those children who completed the Summer Reading Challenge at the library. It has been lovely to see your enthusiasm for reading.

So far in our topic we have been thinking about what we already know or would like to find out about Great Britain. We looked at lots of objects, pictures and photographs of aspects of British life and culture and recorded what we thought we already know or would like to find out about Great Britain.

We have also been finding out about what the term ‘Great Britain’ means and how this is different to the ‘British Isles’ or ‘United Kingdom’. We labelled maps with countries and capital cities in the United Kingdom.

Super science!

In our science lessons we have been learning about what animals, including humans need to survive. We have also designed our own healthy lunchboxes and next week we will be finding out different food groups and what is meant by a balanced diet.

Magical Music!

This week Mrs Bennett has been teaching us about reading notation. We have been learning about the notes A,G and C. We practised playing these notes in time to the accompaniment using the glockenspiels.
