In Year 2 we enjoy listening to, and reading, chapter books. The children have explored character, setting and story creation as well as poetry and making non-fiction books. We are becoming more confident writers and all take part in regular guided reading groups.
In Maths this term, our focus has been on number and addition. The children have had fun discovering patterns in number, and enjoyed making and exploring place value with numbers that have a lot of zeros. Many children use Cuisenaire to help them understand 2 digit numbers. We enjoy being Mathematicians! Mathematicians look for patterns, ask questions and make predictions.
The children have had lots of fun exploring Opposites this term.
Their Explore Time learning has included:
- Art with opposite colours using the colour wheel
- Black and white designs, inspired by artists
- Exploring solids to liquids with lots of different science experiments
- Candle Making
- Finding out about the North and South Pole
And much more!
