Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to our NEW Year 2 Class! We all hope that you have had a wonderful holiday and that you are now ready for all our Year 2 Adventures.
Year 2 had a trip to the moon - we looked at clips of how people walk on the moon and had a practice! We had to get our astronaut suits on - we pretended with hats and boots and so on. We drew huge rockets in the playground - we needed to think about how we would drive them and steer them. We landed on the moon and did our moon walking - we had moon snacks and then we made up lots of exciting moon adventures that we are going to write about in Topic work.
A great start to the new term Year 2 - fantastic maths!
2020 - 2021
Year 2 have been learning all about measurements - we have been weighing and comparing item from around the classroom.
We have spent quite a lot of our Topic time this week talking about David Hockney who is a very famous Yorkshire artist! We have looked at his style and then produced our own work based on his ideas. Most of these photos are based on his photography work but we have also produced our own pictures based on his works The Bigger Splash and Mulholland Drive- The Road to the studio.
The sunshine this week has taken Year 2 outside to enjoy their learning.
In Maths they have been working on position and movement and spent quite a bit of time this morning giving each other directions with forwards, backwards, left, right and then trying to give our friends directions to get them to different points on the grids.
In English they have been writing instructions for Willy the Wimp to follow on his
fitness regime. They have practiced saying their commands using imperative
Year 2 are loving this terms topic - All About Yorkshire - and they have created wonderful posters full of facts and pictures of Sir Captain Tom Moore who has been a real inspiration to them.
