Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's such a shame that we can't begin 2021 together, in school! I was really looking forward to hearing all about your Christmas celebrations and time with your family. On the plus side, you can still share your news with me on Seesaw! 

All of our home learning will be on Seesaw, so head on over and have a look at the exciting things I've planned for you to learn about at home. 

Miss Gardiner

 

Our topic this half term is called 'Fire Fire!' 

In this topic, we'll be learning all about The Great Fire of London. 

Spring 1 Spellings

This week we learned about the Advent wreath.

Maths

Religious Education

ART - We've been studying the work of Wassily Kandinsky. We made tints by adding white and shades by adding black. We mixed all the colours we wanted to use to create circles like Kandinsky.

The Rosary

Look at some of our amazing pumpkin boats that we made for homework.

Happy Harvest - We all looked amazing in our Harvest costumes

Harvest Art - We've been looking at warm colours in art and thought carefully about the time of year they remind us of. Because we've been reading Pattan's Pumkin and it's harvest time, we decided to create our very own stained glass pumpkins. They looks amazing in our classroom window against the autumn scenery outside.

It's harvest time and Pattan's fruit has been harvested, so we used some of the fruit to make smoothies!

This half term, we will be learning about India and Pakistan. To start our topic off with a WOW, we had a special visitor on Friday, who helped us learn about the culture in Pakistan. We were lucky enough to have a look at some special clothing and jewellery from Pakistan and we asked the expert lots of great questions! We also tasted some different foods and smelt some authentic spices that are used in Indian and Pakistani cooking. Our classroom smelt amazing!

We've been developing our computing skills, in Year 2. In class we have begun learning to use the Seesaw app and some of us have joined our new Friday Computing Club, too.
