What we have been learning in Year 2: Spring 2
The Year 2 pupils have really enjoyed learning about British monarchs for our ‘Kings and Queens’ topic – they even got to dress up as kings and queens and make their own crowns! The children have been reading ‘A Walk Around London’ and writing information texts about Queen Elizabeth II. In maths, the children have been learning about fractions, time and 2D shapes. The children have loved taking part in ‘science week’ and ‘world book week’. This term, the children took part in the Canvey Music Festival – learning eight songs and playing instruments – they were amazing! To finish our topic, the children took part in a royal banquet and ball.
Year 2 - Summer term
What we have been learning in Year 2: Summer 1
This half term has been jam-packed with the KS1 SATs and learning about the topic of ‘Medicine’. The children learnt about significant people from history – in particular three nurses: Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell and studying how they influenced hospitals and medicine today. In science, the children have been studying the topic of ‘plants’ and have been investigating what plants need to germinate. In D&T, the children created their own hospital structure using lollypop sticks and matchsticks.
