Children in Year 2 have been looking at Pollution in our world and how it can affect our local community. They created some posters to tell other children in our school about Pollution.
Year 2 are studying the text Wild by Emily Hughes.
Look at how much fun they are having freeze framing. Children were asked to reread part of the story and used a picture as a freeze frame. We asked, what is happening here? How is Wild feeling? What could you say?
Year 2 used their senses to describe the picture.
Excellent role playing to help with retelling the story in more detail!
In Year 2, the children are thoroughly enjoying finding out about and singing about The Victorians as part of their History topic. They are working on answering the Learning Challenge question: What do we know about the Victorians and the way they lived?
Take a look at our Victorian children, sitting in straight lines, writing out sums…
Year 2 have been busy working with Base Ten to make 2 digit numbers.
In small groups, the children were tasked with asking their friend to represent a number that had so many tens and ones. They used language like ‘greater than, less than and the same as.”
Their partner then had to make suggestions about what that number could and could not be and give reasons for their thinking.
Smart work Year 2!
Children in Year 2 will be looking at the text ‘Wild’ by Emily Hughes.
A little wide eyed girl stares out from the cover of this beautiful picture book. The child found in the jungle is taught to talk by the birds, eat by the bears and play by foxes and she is ‘wild’.
Then she meets the humans…
Over the next half term, children in Year 2 will be making exciting predictions about who the girl is, writing a letter of persuasion and talking about the beautiful setting of the story.
