Year 2 Blog Week 22

What a busy first week back it has been! It was wonderful to meet with all the Mums and Dads at Parents’ Evening this week. We hope you enjoyed celebrating all the learning in the books.

This week Year 2 took part in a very special KS1 Act of Worship for Ash Wednesday and to mark the start of Lent. Lent is a time when we pray, give up treats and do kind things for other people, as we prepare to celebrate the great feast of Easter. Year 2 thought very carefully about their Lenten promises and created a beautiful display for our Sacred space in the classroom.In Maths we have been concentrating on telling the time. We pretended to be clocks, turning clockwise and anti-clockwise. There were lots of hands turning … half turns, full turns, quarter turns. Everyone used great reasoning to prove their times.

In English we are focusing on the book The Tin Forest as part of our whole school writing project. Year 2 have started their junk modelling and have created some wonderful collage tin creatures.
