  • The Magical Christmas Jigsaw
    All the practice finally paid-off last week, when we got the chance to perform our Christmas production to the rest of the school and then to our families over the course of three packed performances. All of our teachers were really impressed by the way we threw ourselves into the show, with almost everyone in Year 2 having a speaking part and everybody getting involved in all of the songs and dances. We hope you will agree that our Magical Christmas Jigsaw fitted together brilliantly!

  • Firefighters!
    In English we have been learning how to write a report. We started off with a report about fire fighters, learning all about their job role and what a rewarding job it is. We then got to visit a real fire station and meet the fire fighters in action. We went armed with a huge amount of questions which they happily answered before allowing us to have a turn at using a real hose!

  • The Christmas Story
    To finish off our learning on the Christmas Nativity, we went to St. Andrews and St. George’s Church to join in with an interactive journey to find Jesus. We got to meet characters from the story as they told us how they went looking for baby Jesus. We took part in a range of fun activities before meeting Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. Our behaviour was impeccable and we received a knitted nativity set as a thank you for visiting.

  • Mini-Olympics
    We have been extremely lucky to have so many trips this half term. A few weeks ago, we took a long walk to the cinema to watch Peter Rabbit. We had lots of laughter throughout and enjoyed a midway snack! We then headed to the Mini-Olympics, organised by the Stevenage Sporting Futures Team at the Leisure Centre. We had a great afternoon exploring the different sports activities on offer. Our behaviour was outstanding and we received so many compliments before we left to jump on a coach home.

What we've learnt about this term:x

  • Maths
    In Mrs Jackson’s group we have focused on counting in twos, fives and tens. This has led us into answering multiplication questions from the two, five and ten times tables. We used a range of strategies to help us and are now becoming more confident when answering them independently.

Our Spring Term Topic:
Animal Origins
x

English:
We will be learning the story of The Magic Porridge Pot at the start of the term, memorising it by heart to help us to use its structure and language to create our own stories. We will explore the original text, answering comprehension questions, looking at similarities to other stories we already know and discussing the way that the author has made key moments particularly exciting. Throughout our work, we will continue to develop our basic sentence punctuation skills, ensuring that all our sentences make sense and are grammatically accurate.

We will continue to develop our phonics and spelling skills in daily Read Write Inc sessions, and will practice our joined handwriting across all curriculum areas.

Maths:
Our targets will focus around division and multiplication next term, relating this learning to counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10, as well as exploring the connection between the 10 times table and place value. We will also learn how to solve two-step problems using objects and drawings to explain our thinking. In addition, we will be developing our understanding of place value, and will use this to support the addition and subtraction of two-digit numbers. Finally, we will be exploring the idea of fractions, learning to find fractions of lengths, shapes, sets of objects and quantities, including finding 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4.

Science
We will be continuing to explore living things and their habitats. We will identify differences between things that are living, dead or have never been alive, and learn about the key features that all living things share. We will explore the places where particular animals live, and think about the ways in which these are linked to their characteristics.

Humanities
In geography, we will be linking our science work on habitats to our growing understanding of our planet, through a study of the different environments found on each of the Earth’s continents. We will learn about the specific landscapes, people, climate and issues found in different places around the world, and use this to further understand how particular animals have developed to become well-suited to their habitat.

Building on this, we will also think about the ways in which our lives might be different if we lived elsewhere, and develop our understanding of the fact that not all children grow up in the same situation that we do, or with access to some of the things we take for granted.

The Arts
We will be linking with our topic and science work to create our own imaginary creatures - as well as appropriate habitats for them to live in. In particular, we will be developing our 3D modelling skills, selecting appropriate materials for different aspects of our creature (fur, claws, tails etc) and learning to attach and combine these in new ways.
