Book Week in Year 2

 

This week in Year 2 we enjoyed some fantastic activities to celebrate Book Week. The theme for Book Week this year was 'Books that take us on a journey'.

 

In class, we explored a new book called 'Journey' by Aaron Becker. The book was unusual for us because it had no words, just pictures! This meant that we could really investigate every page and dig deeper to find out what could be happening and build our own story. We dived into the book and wrote descriptions of the beautiful settings in the story, using some great adjectives to build our creative writing.

 

We also had the opportunity to have 2 special visits this week - a visit from our local librarian, who showed us how to join the library and read some lovely stories with us, and a visit from Altru Theatre Company who performed 'The Road to Respect' which explained all about how to show respect for eachother.

 

Finally we enjoyed a lovely morning in class reading with our families. It was lovely for teachers and staff to see so many family members come into class to share a book with the children. Thank you all for coming!

Reading Morning

Signs and Symbols - Baptism

Our most recent RE topic has been 'Signs and Symbols'. We learned about the symbols that are used in Baptism such as the oil, holy water, church doors, white garment, Baptismal candle and the Bible. We acted out Baptism in small groups and talked about what it meant to be part of God's family. The children really enjoyed this topic and are eager to start our new RE topic next week - Preparations.

The children had such a fun and exciting time today when two very talented scientists from

 'Inspiring Science' came to teach the children the importance of hygiene and hand washing. The children were amazed to find out that a common sneeze can travel 7 metres, highlighting the way germs are spread so easily. The children made their very own 'snot' (ewww) and their very own germs to take home to show their families and discuss what they had learned in such a fun way.

 

This was a wonderful way to get the message of hygiene and how to stay healthy across to the children. 

Luke was our merit winner today so he had double celebrations!

The children in Year 2 had a fantastic afternoon celebrating the Jewish Sabbath meal 'Shabbat'

According to the Torah, Shabbat commemorates the day that God rested from creating the world; the word Shabbat literally means “he rested.” Exodus 34:21 states: “Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest.” Shabbat is considered a day of peace and holiness.  The children shared kosher food, prayer and holy songs to celebrate their learning and get a true understanding of this wonderful Jewish tradition. 

The children in Year 2 had a fantastic time choosing the ingredients to make their very own healthy sandwiches. Tracey from Absolutely Catering was extremely impressed with the discussion from the children regarding healthy food choices. The children took home their delicious sandwich to enjoy for dinner with a tasty tub of home made coleslaw. A great day enjoyed by all. 

Using a story map

We have practiced using a story map to retell the story of Dogger by Shirley Hughes. Over the next couple of weeks we will be writing our own stories and using story maps to tell them. 

Counting in 3s

Towards the end of the week, Year 2 have been developing their counting skills and have started to practise counting in 3s. We learned that all the numbers we say when we count in 3s, are part of the 3 times table because they are multiples. We used number squares to help us sequence the numbers when counting in 3s. 

A fantastic musical display!

We were very lucky this week to have a visit from the Merseyside Police Band who played a concert for our whole school in the hall. We listened to classical music as well as popular songs such as Disney hits and even the YMCA! What a wonderful afternoon we had! A huge thank you to the band for paying us such a special visit.

Reading is important!

We all loved having our special objects in school this week. The children really enjoyed choosing a book from the reading area and reading it to their special objects. Keep up the good work year 2!

We have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s this week and used the resources around us to help us count. Lots of practical activities this week in year 2 are helping us to build our skills!

We used hundred squares in class to count forwards and backwards in tens from any number. Eg. 16, 26, 36 etc. 

We played splat, splatting a number and counting forwards and backwards in tens as quick as we could!

Throughout this week, we have been looking at counting in tens and recognising the importance of place value when we count forwards and backwards in tens. We used multilink cubes to make sticks of ten and then represented a number using different maths resources. Keep up lots of practice at home in counting forwards and backwards in tens!

As part of our Literacy topic looking at the story Dogger by Shirley Hughes, we brought in our own special objects and talked about why they are special to us. Have a look at our special toys, teddies and books!
We have been practicing identifying numbers between 1 and 100, counting on and backwards to 100 in 10s and 1s and ordering numbers.
