We love to make use of the outdoors in Year Two when we can, and our science topic has been ideal - living things and their habitats. We spent time working in little teams to hunt for minibeasts, lifting up logs, climbing through trees and crawling in the grass! Take a look at our pictures to see how we got on....
In Year Two there is a lot of emphasis on fact recall and we are superstars when it comes to our 2, 5 and 10 times table. We also get to use lots of practical equipment to help our maths make more sense. For example, during our work on measures we got to measure the capacity of a range of pots, pans and yoghurt pots and explored the changes in temperature when ice cubes and hot water were added to our pots. It was exciting watching the mercury move inside the thermometers!
We had a wonderful visit to the Oriental Museum where we started the day looking at written records, objects and pictures that give us clues about The Great Fire Of London. We then pretended to be putting out the fire just how they did in the past by passing leather buckets down a line! Looking at old maps we were able to see the damage that the fire caused.
