Parents Visit Out Class

A massive thank you to all the parents who visited our class last week. We loved having you there and being able to show off all our learning to you. We hope you enjoyed it and that it was interesting for you to see some of the things we have been learning. We also hope you enjoyed our assembly. We loved it and Miss Savage was very proud!

 

Moving Art

This week we have been continuing with our owl and the pussy cat learning. We have created some fantastic moving pictures of them sailing on their boat. We created the seascape background using pastels and then drew our boat before attaching it to a leaver. They are beautiful Year2 well done!

Science Week

During science week we were continuing with our learning about nocturnal animals. We decided to set up a chamber to see what nocturnal animals visited school at night. We set up a tube with paper rolled in it and filled it with some food to attract the animals. We put a tray of paint at either end so the aminal would walk through it and leave footprints.  The next day there were some small footprints.  When we investigated we found that the belonged to a hedgehog. How exciting!

Book Night

We had an amazing time at our Book Night. It was amazing to see the children so excited about reading and enjoying themselves. A huge thank you to the children for their creativity when they came to work with me creating their own book character.  Thee were lots of fantastic and creative ideas. Thank you for all your support with this event!

Magnificent Maths

This week in maths we started off by measuring things in metres and centimetres and then we moved on to comparing length. We learned to use words like longer, longest, shorter, shortest, wider and widest to compare different measurements. We practiced using theses in sentences to compare. We then used our bar model to find out how much longer or shorter things were. Well done Year 2.

Neil Armstrong

In Year 2 this week we stated our learning on Neil Armstrong. We were so lucky because we had a visitor who came to see us and help us learn all about the first moon landing, the solar system and the sun and moon.  We even had a go at some astronaut training.Now we are really excited to start learning about Neil Armstrong in class.

Cook’s 3rd voyage

We learned all about Cook’s final voyage using drama. We found out that it was a bit of a disaster. There were lots of problems with the ship and they ran out of supplies so they had to eat walrus meat. We also discovered that the weather was cold nd stormy which made things harder. We imagined what it would have been like to be on the ship and what we would had said to Captain Cook.

Week 1 Captain Cook

In our art and topic we found out all about The Maori Warriors that Cook and his crew met in New Zealand. We discovered that they had tattoos covering their faces to show how important they were. These tattoos were all different and made swirly patterns. We had a go at designing some motifs ourselves and then adding them to our faces. How scary we look!

Starry Night

Today we looked at the Van Gogh Starry Night. We used this as inspiration for creating out own starry night backgrounds as we thought this is what it would have been like at the birth of Jesus. We then used black felt tip to create a silhouette of the nativity scene. Miss Savage was really impressed with our art work.
