It has been an action packed week for the Year 2 crew. This week, we have focused on the scourge of the Seven Seas….. PIRATES! The children used plenty of great adjectives to describe these wicked and wily robbers, these outlaws of the oceans. Everyone came to the same conclusion… Never trust a pirate … unless his name is Bobby Shafto. Year 2 have had great fun learning about sea shanties and are in the middle of preparing their performances of Bobby Shafto’s Gone to Sea. Watch this space.
Year 2 have also been looking at measure in maths. The children completed an outdoor measurement maths trail and worked with their Year 3 learning partners to find out different measurements. It was great fun and there was lots of wonderful collaborative learning going on!
This week we started our transition routines. The children have been reflecting on their time in Year 2 and have written up some of their favourite memories from the year in their Transition books. The children have also been thinking about what they are looking forward to in Year 3. To support the transition to Year 3, Home Learning will be set on our blog pages. See below for the Home Learning for this week.
