Year 2 Learning From Home

Year 2 have been very busy participating in their lessons from home. Here’s some of the things they have been up to:

In Mrs Allen’s Maths group, the children have been learning about capacity. In one lesson, they created their own recipe for a drink and made the drink. We had some very interesting recipes including one called ‘The Minty Rainbow’ by Francesco which included haribos, lychee juice, fresh mint, pomegranate and lemon.

They have really been enjoying participating in various science experiments on Zoom. One of these experiments was to see the reaction between baking soda and vinegar, creating an apple explosion. Another was predicting if items would sink or float and whether the material impacted this.

They have also been enjoying live Art with Mrs Allen. The theme has been focused on forests and creating Art work around this. This has included creating more abstract Art work as well as looking at the Art of an artist called Klimt and his work called ‘The Tree of Life’.

Year 2 celebrated VE day by singing the song ‘We’ll meet again’ by Vera Lynn. They also created bunting to put up to celebrate the day.

2A have enjoyed lots of fun during form time. Along with weekly yoga sessions, story time, handwriting and show and tell, they have enjoyed other activities. These have included a scavenger hunt, creating an item of clothing out of a bin bag, Kim’s game, philosophy, creating a den as well as playing bingo.
