What an amazing start Year 2 have had to the year! They have all settled comfortably into Year 2 life, adjusting to their new classroom and routines. Year 2 got off to an exciting start when we received a letter from a Lighthouse Keeper called Mr Grinling!

 He asked us to design him a new sandwich for his lunch because some pesky seagulls kept stealing his! We made some yummy sandwiches and even got to try them out ourselves. From this, we took part in lots of writing activities such as writing instructions, character descriptions and information texts.

  

We also had an interesting start to our Creative Curriculum topic ‘Land Ahoy!’ We were asked to make a boat for a pirate using different construction equipment. We had some fantastic designs and the children loved explaining their creations to the rest of the class. In our geography lessons we have been learning all about maps and have even created our own treasure maps. In History we have been finding out about famous explorers Christopher Colombus and Captain James Cook and we designed a memorial for our favourite explorer. For our science topic, we have been learning all about materials. We enjoyed taking part in an investigation where we explored how materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting or stretching them.

                

We have had also made a great start in our maths lessons – we have been learning all about place value and addition and subtraction. We have been partitioning numbers into tens and ones, looking at number bonds, adding and subtracting and even using the column method.

      
Well done Year 2, Keep up the hard work!
