Year 2 News – Spring 1 – Week 4

Week commencing 30.01.23

The children enjoyed starting the week with a school read around! Teachers chose different books to read and the children were able to choose which one they would like to listen to. They enjoyed hearing a variety of stories as well as visiting other classes.

In English, they planned and then wrote their non-chronological reports using their own dragon design as inspiration. In maths, they have been exploring word problems and how to represent the parts and the whole on a bar model.

In art, the children enjoyed exploring different techniques when using clay, including joining and molding. They will use these skills when making a dragon eye from clay next week.

We have continued to practise the notes a and b on the recorder and next week will start to follow musical notes in patterns. The children also listened to some music and drew patterns and pictures to represent how the music made them feel. This will help them next week when they start to create their own pieces of music on computer software. Have a look at the website if your child would like to try it at home:

RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch

Today the Eco warriors took part in the RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch. We located ourselves near the allotment beds because we’ve heard lots of chirping there before. We only saw one little sparrow making the noise but we did see a lot of pigeons, one blackbird, 2 crows, 1 magpie, 4 black headed gulls and one red kite.

It’s not too late for you to take part at home too – you have until the 19th February!
