Year 2 visit the Walker Art Gallery

Year 2 had a great time at the Walker Art Gallery last week, we looked at lots of modern art and discussed how we create abstract art using different sized shapes, zig zag lines and squiggles. We took some great pieces of work back to school with us and had time to have a quick look around the gallery before lunch.

Hunt for Stick Man!

We have started reading our new book ‘Stick Man’ in Year 2 and after practicing reading through our story map with some great actions, we went on a hunt for Stick Man outdoors. We searched all over for the best ‘Stick Man’ sticks to create his body, arms, legs and super long nose! We love being outdoors exploring our environment and can’t wait to create our very own Stick Men next week.

Year 2’s recording of Wade in the Water

In music lessons recently, following on from Black History Week last month, Year 2 have been learning a traditional, spiritual American song called Wade in the Water. It was first recorded in 1901 and has been covered lots of times since, even becoming associated with the civil rights movement in the U.S. in the 1960s. Year 2 recorded their own version in today’s music lesson; have a listen and let us know what you think!

Our amazing Maths work this half term…

Here are a few photographs of the amazing maths work we have been doing this half term. We’ve estimated how many giant steps it takes to get from one side of the playground to the other, worked out how many tens and ones are in two digit numbers, ordered numbers to a hundred, practiced our number bonds, counted in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s from different numbers and much more. Year 2 have worked so hard since starting in September and they have learnt so many new skills already. We can’t wait for next term!

Year 2’s Science Experiment!

Year 2 have already had lots of fun finding out about materials this half term. Today we started to make our own crystals and watched how the salt dissolved in the warm water when it was stirred. We used salt, warm water, string, lollypop sticks and lots of spoons for stirring but we have to leave our mixtures over the weekend so hopefully when we come in next week we will see that beautiful colourful crystals have formed!
