  • Science investigation with materials

    Published 30/06/22, by Saffron Holloway

    Year 2 had a fantastic time investigating the properties of materials. After making predictions about which material would be the best for keeping our plastic teddies dry, we performed a fair test. We tested paper napkins, plastic bags, linen, fake fur and dishcloths. We recorded our results in a table and used our results to draw our conclusion, which was that plastic was waterproof and therefore the best material for the job!

  • Telling the Time

    Published 21/06/22, by Saffron Holloway

    Over the last two weeks Year 2 have been learning to tell the time on an analogue clock. It has been challenging! We have been revising telling the time to o'clock and half past and learning to read quarter to, and quarter past. For extra challenge we have looked at telling the time for 5 minute intervals.

  • Poetry

    Published 21/06/22, by Saffron Holloway

    Year 2 have been writing their own poems about a special item of clothing inspired by My Sari by Debjani Chaterjee. We have been focusing on the features of simile and alliteration to create powerful imagery.

    We have then looked at shape poems and begun to publish our writing into shape poems of our own, like the example in the picture.

    We'll blog these later in the week when they are finished.
