Sea City Museum

Year 2 had a wonderful time at the Sea City Museum learning about the tragic story of the Titanic.

Many thanks to all the parents that helped; without you our trips wouldn’t be able to go ahead.


Please keep practicing 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

From the year 2 team.

Science fun!

The children this week have been exploring by making gloop. They have been talking about the textures of different materials and what happens when they are mixed together.

In maths we have been focusing on the properties of 3D and 2D shapes. We have explored how many edges, vertices and faces 3D shapes have and how many corners and sides 2D shapes have.

In English we have been learning how to spell contractions

including: couldn’t, wouldn’t, can’t, won’t, I’m.

Our home learning this week is stuck in the children’s diaries:

Learn your 2 times table off by heart without counting up every time.

Challenge: learn linking division facts e.g. 16รท2=8

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

From the year 2 team.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to the Spring term. The children have settled back into their learning with positive attitudes.

The children came into the classroom and found lots of crumbs from a cracker on the floor. The children then wrote letters to the cleaners asking them questions about how the crumbs got into our classroom.

We then began reading Samson’s Titanic Journey and making predictions about how the story might end.

In maths we have been partitioning numbers in different ways for example —

76 could be partitioned into 60 + 16 = 76

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

From the year 2 team.
