Year Two's Blog - 6th May

Welcome to Year Two's blog


It's been a short week, but a busy week!


What we have been doing this week


In maths the children continued to learn about time. We have been consolidating telling the time to 15 minute intervals and moving on to 5 minute intervals. You can read our knowledge organiser here.


In writing, the children used the story of 'The Dark' to write their own stories, but from the perspective of the dark. The children applied much of the knowledge they have been focusing on, including using adverbial phrases, possessive apostrophes and suffixes You can the topic sheet here. 


We continued our science work on plants. The children will be looking at the different variety of seeds and bulbs and making careful observations. - Read the science knowledge organiser here.


In geography, the children located the physical and human features of the United Kingdom. - Read the geography knowledge organiser here.


In art, the children observed the human form, looking carefully and limbs and joints in preparation for creating their own clay models later in the half term. 


What we are learning next week


In maths, we are going to spend two days completing our learning on time before moving on to measuring length. The children will be using rulers to measure accurately in cm and m, ordering and comparing lengths using <, > and =.


In writing, we will be completing writing our stories about 'The Dark'. We will then be comparing this to the story 'The King who Banned the Dark.' The children will be writing letters to the King to explain why they think the King should keep or remove the dark ban.  You can the topic sheet here. 


We will continue our science work on plants. The children will be taking a look at their seedlings from the bean seeds they planted last week. You can see some photos of these below.  Read the science knowledge organiser here.


In geography, the children will begin to learn about the country of India. They will learn about the physical features such as the River Ganges, the Himalayan Mountains and the Thar Desert.  Read the geography knowledge organiser here.


In art the children will be practising a range of sculpting techniques and making joins with clay in preparation for their final pieces.

It's no surprise to see that the Woodpeckers have topped the Doodle chart yet again! Well done!
