It's been another busy week in Year 2! This week we have been scientists, artists and much more.
This week has also been a little different to our normal week as we have had two special things take place. Both happened on Tuesday! The first exciting thing was that Reverend Alison came to visit us. She led our worship, and we were given the task of creating laughter sound effects as she read the story of Sarah and Abraham. By the end of worship we had shared a few jokes with each other. Reverend Alison also helped us sing one of our favourite worship songs 'Our God Is A Great Big God'. Our next exciting activity was linked to singing too! We took part in the Young Voices Biggest Sing world record attempt. We sang, and learnt how to sign, the song 'Beautiful Day'. It was great fun singing and learning a new skill. You did a great job. Well done team!
Throughout the week, we have continued learning the story 'The Little Red Hen' in our English lessons. This week we have worked hard to plan our own stories for our 'shared write'. We have all thought of countryside settings and characters, and then used these to create our own story maps. We started writing our stories on Thursday. They are already sounding great.
In maths we have continued learning about time. We have been comparing time this week and learning how to answer word problems. We learnt that the longer something takes the slower it is. Next week, we will continue learning about time as we will be moving onto learning how to read quarter past and quarter too.
In RE this week, we explored what we do when we welcome a new baby into the world and what happens at a baptism. We identified the key people and objects that are important and wrote about why this celebration is special.
In our Science lesson, we learnt about food chains. We learnt that plants begin our food chain by making energy from the sun. These plants are then eaten by an animal which is then eaten by another. This cycle continues until you reach the top of the food chain. The energy that the plant made at the beginning of the chain is passed along each animal in the chain.
This week we finished our cave painting art project. We copied our original designs onto the cave walls we made last week and then used a fine brush to paint the designs in tones of browns, greys, yellows and reds. This took careful concentration as it was a tricky task. Study work has also been a big focus of our week. We finished writing up our Stone Age Sound Collector poems which we began before half term. These have now been put into our Study Work books which are really taking shape.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend,
