Year 2 (The Starfish)
ATTENTION PARENTS - WHOLE CLASS TEAM CALL 10.2.21
If you missed our Teams call today, I set the children a challenge for our call next week. Their mission is to find a joke that they want to share with their friends during the call, that will make the Year Two adults cry with laughter.
I have talked through with the children the new learning channel on our Year 2 team. If you would like to find out more about this and be part of it, please join our Teams call on Wednesday 10th February at 2pm where I will go through it again with you.

Attention Starfish Class
We know that with lockdown not all children are able to access PE in Schools or interact with the Lincoln City Foundation coaches as much as they usually would, we don’t want them missing out so we have been delivering LIVE PE every Friday at 2.30pm on our YouTube channel. These videos are targeted to EYFS and KS1 as it is vital they develop their ABC’s for sport skills (agility, balance and coordination), each week has its own theme and the videos are around 15 minutes long. These can be used as a PE starter, breaktime activity or to get them up and going first thing when they get to school to be more productive and awake! They can also be sent out to everyone who is learning from home to ensure they are still keeping active as the videos are a quarter of the time a child should be active a day (1 hour). Don’t worry if you have missed the first 2 weeks as the links are bellow!

Week Beginning 23.11.20 - 30.11.20
We have had another fun packed week in Year 2. We have learnt all about what the Victorians used to eat and then made our very own sugar mice. We had to leave them to dry for a couple of days, but they were very yummy. We have also created our own recipe instructions for our own Wonka Bars. Why don’t you ask us how to make them? In Maths, we have been continuing to solve money problems. Adding a ‘p’ in our number sentence has confused us a little bit but we have been determined to complete the challenges. In our other learning, we used our RE knowledge to produce some colourful stain-glass style pictures of Ganesh, the god of wisdom and strength, we created a healthy food plate in Science and had a great session using the toboggans in PE.
Our Year 2 stars earnt their award this week by impressing the adults in class with their determination, hard work and resilience. Well done Freya and Jack.
Week Beginning 9.11.20 - 16.11.20
The one and only Mr Willy Wonka has written to ask Y2 to guard a secret recipe. To persuade us to help, he also sent along a sweet shop. We have worked super hard to earn golden tickets which allow us to buy the sweets at the end of each day. They are rather yummy. Miss Struggles and the other adults in class were really impressed with our replies. During our Maths sessions, we have been looking at fractions and how to divide both numbers and shapes equally. We were quite impressive!
In other areas of our learning, we used oil pastels to produce South American inspired artwork of some Amazon Rainforest animals and we had a fun IT lesson using the Lego WeDo to program our devices. We can’t wait to use that again. All in all, we have had a fabulous couple of weeks in Year 2!
Huge congratulations to Harvey, Jude and Verity for being our ‘Stars of the Week’ so far this term. They have all been very impressive!
Week Beginning 12.10.20 - 19.10.20
What a fabulous couple of weeks we have had in Year 2. It has been filled with more calculations but those have been focused on subtraction and multiplication. We have come to realise that the number line is rather tricky but the more we practise, the better we are getting. As a class, we have thoroughly enjoyed looking at the story ‘A Tale of Two Feathers’ where we looked at the four different sentence types and applied our knowledge of this to create a persuasive poster about a missing feather. Enjoy the half term holiday Year 2 so that you are fighting fit for Term Two.
Week Beginning 28.9.20 - 5.10.20
It has been a busy start to the Year 2 class. We have focused our learning on recalling what we remember from Year 1 and then thinking about what we need to do in Year 2. So far, we have been retelling the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel, learning about tens and ones along with place value and using this to help us solve addition calculations either with resources or with our structured or unstructured number line. We cannot wait to find out what we will be learning next.
