What have we been learning?

Spring

On the last day of term, we had an Easter Egg hunt! We had to find the eggs and solve the maths problems. When we had finished, we got a chocolate prize!

In January, we decided to write a letter to the Queen to congratulate her on her Platinum Jubilee. We were very excited to recieve a letter back in March! She thanked us for our lovely letters and sent us a number of leaflets and resources to help answer our questions. We also got a special photo of her! 

Autumn

To celebrate Black History Month, Year 2 have been looking at the book ‘Hidden Figures’ and learning all about the ladies who solved problems for NASA and the challenges they overcame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Year 2, we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. In 1666 people passed a leather bucket down a ‘human chain’ from the River Thames to the fire. We had a go at creating our own human chain, we found it very tricky!

In maths we have been looking at place value. In one lesson, we took our learning outside and created tens and ones using sticks and stones.

We have two goldfish, Coral and Reef, who we love to look after. Each morning we give them a pinch of food and sometimes a treat! We clean their tank out every couple of weeks and change their enviornment by choosing ornaments for their home. We love to talk to them and show them our fantastic work.
