Where is New Brighton?

Children are very excited for our trip to New Brighton next week but do you know where it is? We used the maps app on the iPads to locate New Brighton and learned that it is situated near Liverpool. If we travel on the M6 it will takes us just under an hour and a half to get there. We also noticed that to get to New Brighton we would have to travel in a northeasterly direction.

Year 2 Beach Habitat Boxes

 

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.

Maths Treasure Hunt

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.

Year 2 Friendships

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.

 

Year 2 Measures

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?

Year 2 News

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.

Anyone for a marmalade sandwich?

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.
