Year 2 Latest News Summer 1 – Week 1

This week we have looked at instructions in English. We reminded each other of the key features and what makes a set of instructions clear. Through trial and error we discovered that instructions must be precise so that the reader knows exactly what they need to do.

In Maths, we were introduced to division. We started to investigate this operation using the sharing technique. We did this practically and collaboratively outside and then transferred our new knowledge to recording it in our books.

Along with starting a new term, we have started a new topic: Get Ready for Take Off. This topic will take us around the world but to begin this learning we looked at our local area. In our Geography session, we worked together to note down everything we knew about Croxley Green. Next, we learnt new facts about the area and added this to our notes about Croxley Green.

This week, we also started a new science topic focusing on plants. To learn about plant growth we set up an investigation. We placed beans in 6 different growing conditions. We will monitor the beans over the term looking for the beans which are growing the most. This will show us which conditions are ideal for plant growth.
