We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help you do this, we produce a termly information sheet, outlining our main topics and giving suggestions for how you might follow them up at home:

Year 2

Maths Measuring

In our Maths lessons, we have been getting to grips with all sorts of measuring. We have been finding out about different units of measure as well as which tools are best for which measuring jobs. We also found out that you have to be very accurate and careful and always start from zero!

 

Year 2

Literacy

A mystery suitcase arrived for us in school one day. When we looked inside, we saw lots of warm clothes, a compass, a very old camera and some tinned food. Bit by bit and with some careful questions and deductions, we found out that it belonged to Ernest Shackleton. We learned about his expeditions to Antarctica and his great survival and rescue story.

 

Year 2

Ice Science

In our Science lessons on Materials, as part of our Fire and Ice topic, we investigated the properties of ice and then designed and planned our own fair tests, depending on our interests. Some groups compared how quickly ice would melt in hands or in water, while others were interested to see if ice with food colouring would melt faster than normal ice.
