Welcome to Year 2!
Year 2 team: Lisa Clemson (Teacher), Jordan Cockette (Teacher), Karen Marshall (HLTA) & Paula Pritchard (TA).
We have had a fabulous start to our Year Two adventure!
We have really enjoyed looking at all of the children's boxes that they have put together over the Summer holidays! The children enjoyed telling us about all of the objects significant to them.
We have been looking closely at a healthy and balanced diet - the children have been developing their observational skills and drawing the intricate patterns inside fruit. Once drawn, the children have used their creativity to paint the fruit and embellish it using pastels.
We have learnt and practised new songs and performed them at the Harvest Celebration. We have developed a range of skills when choosing and using different and tools and techniques to make our apple and sultana muffins.
In Numeracy we have been partitioning numbers and working out the value of each digit. We have explored using the dienes and making two digit numbers.
In Literacy we have been looking closely at the story's 'Eat Your Green Goldilocks' and 'Keep Running Gingerbread Man'. We have acted out the stories and looked at the range of vocabulary and punctuation. The children have used all of their skills learnt this half term and written some fabulous stories.
In P.E we have experimented with a range of movements and performed them in a routine. We have also developed our throwing and catching skills and combined these skills in a game of bench ball.
We are all looking forward to starting our next topic 'A Stitch In Time'.
Use your engineering skills to play games and help the Neurons collect stars.
