Year 2 are thoroughly enjoying their new Science topic 'Rocks and Soils'. We have thought about what rocks are and what they are used for. We went outside and collected different rocks and then sorted them into different groups. We thought about texture (size, shape, arrangement of particles) and appearance (colours).

In Maths this week we have been looking at fractions. We found out that the number at the bottom (denominator) shows the number of parts altogether and the number at the top (numerator) shows how many parts you have. We focussed on finding half of numbers and used the Numicon to help us. We had great fun! If you would like to play a fraction game at home please [click here].

A huge well done to all the KS1 children for their performance of 'Born in a Barn'. What an amazing production!
Year 2 have been busy preparing cards and calendars ready to bring home. They all had great fun on Tuesday at the Christmas parties. Many thanks to the PTA for providing the disco. We even had a special visitor!
Thank you to all the children for their hard work this term and also to parents for your support at home. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

This week Year 2 have enjoyed planting their Marie Curie Pots of care. We had to fill the pot with soil and carefully plant the daffodil bulb in the middle. Children will have brought the pots home on Friday. Remember to look after them and care for them and then in the Spring you should have a beautiful daffodil flower!

This week Year 2 have started to look at time. We thought about the difference between an analogue clock and a digital clock. We read the time from a digital clock then put that time on our own small analogue clock. It was tricky remembering which was the hour hand and which was the minute hand! If you would like to play a time game looking at digital and analogue please [click here].
