    Our genre at the moment is explanation texts and to fit with our theme we are learning about The Life Cycle of a Butterfly. The children have read a really good version, looked at the structure of the text and 'boxed' it up and today we did actions to go with the text. This should help us remember before we write our own versions.

    Science

    To begin our new theme we spent some time remembering what we already know about plants from Year One and discussing what we would like to find out. We looked at different concept cartoons discussing the different part of plants and their functions and discussing if we agreed or not.

    Class Text

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Our class text is The Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith. Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but unfortunately on the wrong side of the road from the Park, with its beautiful lily pond, and more importantly its juicy slugs, worms and snails! The busy road is a dangerous barrier but Max notices that humans seem to cross it quite easily. If they can, why can’t hedgehogs? So Max sets out on a quest to find a safe way to reach the Park. His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head, and Max finds when he tries to speak his words are all mixed up. He is now a Hodgeheg, not a hedgehog, but he is still determined to fulfil his mission. After some careful detective work, Max eventually discovers the best way to cross the road – with the help of the lollipop lady, of course!

    Year 2 have been looking at how different methods have been used to create different tie-dye effects. We decided what methods we preferred and which we would like to try. Our goal this term is to create our own tie dyed flowers as part of our theme.

    The children learnt about impressionism today and were challenged to use 2 Paint on 2Simple to create their own piece of impressionist art today. Well done to those children who gave it a good try.

    Hook!

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    Welcome back to the summer term, I hope you had a great Easter. Today, Year 2 completed their theme hook. We talked about all the parts of a plant as the start to our theme, Down at the Bottom of the Garden. I then gave the children lots of plants and they had to try and place them in the correct place. They needed some support but learnt a lot.

    Easter Hunt

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    To end the term Year 2 took part in an Easter hunt. There were 10 questions hidden around the field. The children had to choose the correct answer and collect a letter to reveal a hidden phrase. I think they all had lots of fun especially as it was so windy!

    Science

    LP To make a prediction. To end our science topic on habitats Year 2 set up an investigation over the Easter holidays. We are predicting the answer to, which habitat will the most creatures move in to? We set up hula hoops, each with a different material covering it. We had plastic, fabric, cardboard, logs and stones. Most children think logs will be the most popular as that is where creatures normally live. We will see if anyone has moved in after the holidays.

    Today Year 2 thought a lot about healthy eating and created their own healthy meal. We learnt how much sugar is in lots of food and how it is important to limit your sugar intake.
