Geography

“Where does our food come from?

in this unit children made links to the everyday experience of buying and eating food within the UK and developed a growing geographical understanding of the world. Within this unit we looked at a local area study with a visit to a local shops to show the children the connection between the food we buy and how much of it comes from the UK...

Examples of work

We Are Researches

The children researched 'The History of Pasta.' Firstly, we discussed how to be safe on the internet and how to search for information effectively and efficiently. They used the iPads to structure a mind map to write down their finding. After that, they made a presentation and shared their findings.

PE

With the support of Manchester City, this half term we have used Hockey to continued to develop our agility and coordination through dribbling skills. We have also used simple team games to develop our tactics for attacking and defending.

They had the opportunity to explore the life and work of 6 key, abstract artists and work primarily with paints to create pieces in a range of abstract styles.

Computing

“We are photographers”

In our computing unit this half term, children have reviewed photos online, practised using a digital camera, taken photos to fit a given theme, edited their photos and then selected their best images to include in a shared portfolio. We learned many new skills and we can now confidently use photo-editing software on the iPads.

Rock Dog Music Trip

Autumn 1

Dear parents, we've had great fun in year 2 this half term! We have made a great start to the new school year and most importantly, we've learnt lots of new things! 

Enjoy looking at some of the things we have been doing below...

 

English

We began the new school year by exploring postcards and letters. The children wrote some fantastic recounts in the form of a letter to Mrs Walsh. We were so impressed with the standard of writing, so early in the school year. After this, we started our work on Warning Stories. Using Talk4Writing we learnt the story of Little Red Riding Hood before inventing our very own warning stories. Take a look at the children retelling the story of LRRH below...

Maths

Maths has been a little bit tricky but we have made excellent progress. Our understanding of place value within 2-digit numbers has developed well and we are now able to add and subtract these numbers with some confidence!

Science

In science we have been learning all about the uses of everyday materials. We talked about the suitability of different materials and even did an experiment to find out which materials would be the best to make a house from! We even went on an exciting trip to Platt Fields Park. See what we got up to in the photos below...

Music

In music we have had great fun following beats and rhythms. We have also been learning to follow a simple beat with musical instruments. Ask your children if you can play "don't clap this one back."
