Welcome to our Year 2 Page!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
We have really enjoyed getting to know our new Year 2 children. They have all been working hard to get to know the routines and daily expectation of Year 2 life, whilst having lots of fun along the way.
Year 2 were very excited to update this class page to show you the start of our first topic. We have been looking at the Victorians. We have a trip coming up soon, which we are very excited about and we were keen to show off some of our pictures from our Victorian day. The teachers were very strict and we had to do things we don't do nowadays like cleanliness checks, drills, and prayers before luncheon. We enjoyed copying arithmetic with chalk, learning Victorian proverbs, making an optical illusion toy, observational drawings and having a quiz on Queen Victoria. The teachers were quite surprised to find the children wanted to stay in Victorian characters for the next day!
We are also doing lots of work in Year 2 including adding and subtracting using number lines. We have found that practising adding and subtracting 10 very quickly in our heads can be quite helpful. We have also written Victorian diaries in Big Write, which we enjoy because it's very quiet and we listen to lovely music. We will soon be moving on to writing about Alice in Wonderland. We have put a lot of effort into our handwriting over the past few weeks as we are starting to join our letters keeping them small and at the right size.
Lots of learning already, what a great start to the year!
