Year 2 Spring Term 2022 Curriculum Overview

Year 2 Nativity! The children were FANTASTIC in their performance. I was so proud of them!

We went a Fire Hydrant walk yesterday in Shenfield Place. I'm not sure which was more exciting - finding the fire hydrants or spotting two cats! The children were very well behaved and love our little cat companion for the journey!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The children have worked very hard over the last few weeks to create their Great Fire of London landscapes. Well done!

Out of Space Drama Workshop. The children were treated to lots of space themed drama games, including exploring different planets. There was even a link to kindness by picking up some friendship dust on the way back to Earth! The children performed so well and listened very carefully. Well done Hedgehogs!

Subtraction using Base 10. Write the question. Look at the first number to decide how many Base 10s you need. Look at the first number and draw that amount of counters in the Base 10 grids. Look at the second number and cross that amount of counters out. The answer is the amount of counters that haven’t been crossed out.

We worked together in literacy today to understand the different behaviours and actions of a cat to link to our diary writing.

We spent the afternoon investigating different metals. The children investigated whether all metals made a ringing sound or were magnetic.
