We have been doing lots of art the last few weeks. This week in our topic we used straws to blow paint. We were focussing on recreating what we could see.

We have also been working on making a life cycle of a butterfly. We have used tissue paper to build a cocoon, egg, butterfly and leaf. These are going on our new Science display outside the year 2 shared area.

Next week we have got a special visit from a local artist and we are going to look at his work.

What have you enjoyed the most?

In year 2 we have a maths-working wall, which all the children use on a daily basis to help with their learning.

The working wall has lots of basic skills displayed.

All of the children have got their current maths target displayed on the wall and as a class we look at ways in which all of the children can achieve their target.

Below are some pictures of our maths-working wall.

What do you use most on our maths-working wall?

What do you enjoy most about our maths area?

Miss Wright is looking forward to your answers.

We have been using our personal dictionaries in our writing lessons.

In our History lesson this week we have looked at timelines and what a timeline is.

We made a human timeline in our class, this helped us to see the different events and when they happened.

We then made a timeline for our history books and ordered a sequence of events.

Can you remember when the millennium was?

Can you remember when the First World War was?

Miss Wright is looking forward to your answers.
