Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

 

Well the first-half term flew by and we are now approaching the Christmas season.

 

Important information

Remember, reading books and homework will be sent home on a Friday afternoon and should be returned to school on a Wednesday. Please make sure that your parents sign your Reading Together books so that we can give you new reading books. Please bring your reading bag and your Reading Together into school everyday so that when you read with an adult in school, we can write a note to tell your parents how well you are getting on.

 

PE- Our day for PE is on a Friday. Mrs Ryder will be teaching us PE. Please make sure that you have your PE kit (red T-shirt, blue/black shorts and plimsolls) in school every day.

 

This term, our topic is called Jurassic Forest and we are learning all about dinosaurs and life in prehistoric times. During our topic, we will learn about dinosaurs, their habitats and diets. We will also learn about fossils and their importance to palaeontologists. As part of our topic, we will visit the Hancock museum.

Solving problems involving length

Still image for this video
We have been learning how to measure length using the trundle wheels. We learned that Usain Bolt can run 100 metres in under 10 seconds. We investigated how far we could run in 10 seconds by using a stop watch and measuring the distance using a trundle wheel. The furthest distance ran in 10 seconds was around 60metres! We may have a future Olympian sprinter among us.

We are learning how to program the Beebots. We have learned how to program simple algorithms into the Beebot and how to debug if our algorithm is unsuccessful.

We are enjoying learning about children in the past. We were shocked to find out that children worked in dangerous jobs such as cleaning chimneys and down the mines! Most of us were very thankful that we went to schools now rather than in the past, when punishments sounded awful!
