Year 2 News – Spring 1 – Week 5

Week commencing 06.02.23

This week we enjoyed making our dragon eyes using clay. We used the joining and modelling skills we have been learning to add detail and to make sure our designs hold together. The children also explored using the clay tools and the effects that can be made with them.

In English, the children have written diary entries in the role of Zog the dragon and then followed instructions to make a paper plate dragon. They really enjoyed making them and then wrote their own instructions for someone else to follow!

In music, we learned another note to play on the recorder and had fun putting three different notes together in a tune. We also thoroughly enjoyed applying our knowledge of music in computing, using different tools on computer software.

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.
