Year 2 have really enjoyed reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and learning about the seaside so we decided to make our own habitat boxes. They include real sand and if you look closely you will spot a 3D printed starfish. Children worked excellently as a group and produced fantastic work. Well done Year 2!
As always thank you those children who are reading 4 times a week or more.
Today in year 2, we were on the hunt for treasure! Children worked in pairs to solve addition and subtraction problems then had to hunt for the answers outside. You showed some super calculating year 2! Well done to Kelsie and Brooke for being the first to finish.
We have been thinking about the people we care for in SEAL over the past couple of weeks. First we thought about relatives we care for and how we can show them we love them by giving them cuddles or helping them around the house. Then we read a lovely story about how our family make us feel valued and special. This afternoon we discussed how we also care for our friends and talked about why our friends are our friends e.g. They make us smile, they play games with us and they have similar interests.
Also a big thank you to the children who have been reading at home 4 times a week.
This week in year 2 we have been learning all about different measures. We now know that we can measure capacity in ml or l and mass in g or kg. We practised reading scales by making our own fruit cocktails and chocolate cornflake cakes. Yum! I wonder who can remember how many millilitres are in a litre?
Another big thank you for the children reading at home 4 times a week this week.
In other news our sunflower seeds are growing! We will be keeping a close eye on them over the half term to see how big they grow. We need to make sure they have enough sunlight and water so they grow well.
A big thank you to all the children (and adults) reading at home this week. We’ve had 13 children who have read at least 4 times. Well done!
Year two have been enjoying reading Paddington Bear this term and completing reading and writing tasks based on the book. Today we were writing instructions about how to make a marmalade sandwich (Paddington’s favourite) but first we needed to make our own. Children couldn’t wait to tuck in to them and give marmalade a try.
A big, big thank you and well done for all of our fabulous flying machines in year 2.
Children enjoyed exploring different microhabitats in the Science garden this afternoon. We saw worms, spiders and ladybirds living in the soil and on the leaves.
