This week in Year 2, we have continued our learning in science on living things and their habitats. After visiting the school garden, we found some microhabitats so explored this some more. You drew your microhabitats clearly and wrote some great descriptions using science words such as shelter, food, young and safety.
In maths we have continued our unit on multiplication and division and you are really confident at multiplication now, and you can "prove it!" by drawing or explaining your answers. We have been focusing on explaining our answers starting with "I know this because...". I have been very impressed.
In English we have read the Three Little Pigs and started to learn our new talk for writing unit. This time we will be writing our own traditional tale, maybe based in space! We have focused on capital letters for names and using apostrophes for ommision within our writing.
In history we have started to think about how we can find out about the past. You came up with some great sources and we will use these next week to ask questions about key people in the history of space and space travel, particularly Neil Armstrong and his team and Valentine Tereshkova.
For our mindfulness activity this week, we thought about who is special to us and recorded these on love hearts. They will form part of our special mindfulness book.
World book Day costumes were fantastic and we had a really special day enjoying everything reading! Thank you for all of your effort and hard work. It was lovely to see you all sharing your favourite books. Check out our video on YouTube for some of year 2 talking about their favourite books.
In music this week, our new song we listened to was Shine by Aswad. We learnt the tempo is quite fast and the dynamics are quite loud too! The style of the music is Reggae. We continued to learn our term song of Zootime and enjoyed singing and acting out the song.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend
