Lots Of Active Learning In Year 2!

2nd Oct 2022

We’ve had a busy start to the term in Year 2! Our topic for World Around Us is “All About Me” and we have had lots of fun being scientists and exploring using our Senses. We went on a Senses Walk around the school to discover what we could find using our sense of Smell, Sight, Touch and Hearing. We also carried out some Taste Tests to see if we could work out the flavours of some drinks and yoghurts. There were some great observations made by budding scientists in Year 2! 🧑🏻‍🔬👩🏻‍🔬

In Art we made some self-portraits using natural materials. We were very impressed with our finished work! We also used iPads to create our portraits on-screen. 🎨👩‍🎨

In Numeracy we investigated how to measure non-standard units. We measured objects (and ourselves!) using cubes, straws and handspans. We’ve had great fun in our role play areas acting out the roles of dentists and doctors 🧑🏻‍⚕️👨‍⚕️

Through our school partnership with the Nerve Centre we have been learning about Algorithms. One of our unplugged activities was to listen to a set of instructions and follow them to create a simple picture. Don’t they look great!

Finally, to celebrate International Week we dressed up in the colours of our favourite countries. We certainly represented a lot of areas!

Have a look at our photos to see some of the great things we’ve been up to!
