Year 2 Latest News – Summer 2 – Week 6

This week we enjoyed welcoming our parents and carers in to see our books and complete some activities with us in our classrooms. It was lovely to share our learning with our families and talk about what we have enjoyed this year.

We also visited our new school and spent the day with our Year 3 teachers. It was great to see our classrooms, play on the playground and even eat our lunch there too! Over the last few days of school, we will be thinking about changes that will happen as we move to Year 3 and how we feel about them.

In art, we created artwork showing Tudor houses with fire in the background to show the Great Fire of London. We chose from a range of materials, such as oil pastels, tissue paper, coloured paper, paint or pencils. We then used strips of black paper to create the outline of houses and create the effect of them being burnt by the fire.

We have practised our production and cannot wait to show our families and friends from Malvern Way next week!

This week the children have all enjoyed their first woodwork sessions. First they explored the safety aspects of woodwork including the importance of safety goggles and safe use of tools. They used a variety of different size and thickness of balsa wood, different sized nails and a variety of mixed media such as bottle tops, corks and beads for their creations. They also learned how to use a Japanese saw safely with an adult. The children had lots of fun exploring and we were very impressed with their creations.

This week in maths, we learnt about patterns. We had to identify patterns but also create patterns ourselves. We noticed that a pattern could be made in lots of different ways. For example, you could make a one by alternating two types of shape or by changing the colour of just one shape.
