We have had a great week this week in year 2! We’ve looked at and counted money, and we’ve written our own rhyming poems and made our own maps of the school! One week left until half term!
This week in English we’ve continued looking at the book ‘Someone swallowed Stanley’ by Sarah Roberts. There is a lot of rhyme in this book, so we have been looking at rhyming words and then wrote our own rhyming poems about sea creatures! And then we have written postcards pretending to be Stanley to tell people about the day we had.
In Maths, we have continued to look at money, recognising the different coins and how much they are worth. We spent most of the week adding different amounts of pence together, and then used this knowledge on Friday to find different ways to make an amount. We all had a really great time doing this and really using our brains to find different ways! Next week we will continue to look at money, working out change and doing some problem solving and reasoning.
In science, we have looked at different parts of plants and labelled them. We have continued to grow our peas and lavender plants! The peas and doing really well and growing too high for the pots we have!
In PE, we have continued to work on our ball skills, focusing on underarm throwing. We threw balls through hoops and had some nice competitions! We ended the lesson with a game of dodgeball, which all the children enjoyed. Next week we will be focusing on catching balls as part of the ball skills.
This week for geography we have continued to look at maps, focusing on maps of the school as we made our own to follow. Then we evaluated each other’s maps to see if they were easy to follow and how clear they were. Next week we will be looking at RE.
For computing this week, we have continued to look at devices and spent some time walking around the school to see what devices we could find. We found a lot and thought about how they were used, by teachers and pupils.
In PSHE, we talked about people in the world around us and if or how we can trust them.
