Year 2

To kickstart Science Week (week beginning 27.01.20), we have been to our school's nature trail, searching for Living things and Minibeasts.

We are working hard on multiplications and divisions in class at the minute. Any support at home would be greatly appreciated.

Happy New Year to all of the Y2 families!! Please find attached our class Spring Term newsletter.

We all had a super time at our Christmas party!

A scrumptious Christmas dinner!

Getting ready for Christmas...

What a fantastic day we have had on our Great Fire of London Workshop Day!! We traveled back in time to 1666, dressed up in fantastic costumes, learnt lots, had lots of fun and had a super afternoon filled with arts and crafts.

This week we have been thinking hard about friendship, bullying and what makes a 'Good Melling Friend'. We had some excellent discussions in class as well as in our assemblies. Take a look at some of our work we completed in Y2.

Take a look at our silhouette art work that we created, based on The Great Fire of London. It was tricky but the results were very good!

The Great Melling Bake Off... A super day of baking bread in Y2! Luckily it didn't result in a Great Fire!! As part of our History Great Fire of London topic that we are currently learning about, we were busy weighing, measuring, kneading and finding out how hard life as a baker can be. We had super results in the end with lovely tasting bread.

Children in Need Day - lots of money was raised and fun was had by all!

Another number challenge... We have been looking at two-digit numbers and odd and even numbers recently. We looked at various possibilities to this challenge and also thought about what our answers may have been if the questions were written in a different order. It got our brains working hard!

We love a good number challenge in Year 2! We put our reasoning skills to the test and completed the challenge, working well in pairs and building resillience along the way.

Have you seen the Highway Rat? We have been reading the fabulous story by Julia Donaldson and created some descriptive posters asking people to watch out for the Rat.

Now that we are getting good at partitioning, we are starting to add bigger numbers together, using an empty number line to help us. It's tricky, but we're doing well!

In Maths, we have been learning to partition numbers into tens and ones, using Diennes apparatus to help us and exchanging ones for tens where possible.

Year 2's Autumn Term Science Topic. We have been learning lots about Materials, their uses and how materials can change. This links nicely to our Great Fire of London History topic this term.

We had a super time during Art Week, looking at drawing techniques by a famous artist. We have been recently learning about Roald Dahl so we thought it would be a great opportunity to look at drawings by Quentin Blake.

What a smart class we are! Top of the infants and ready to learn!
