We have had a wonderful first term in Year 2!

This term we have focused on Science, and learning about Living Things and their Habitats. We took a trip to the Royal Fort Gardens to build mini-beast hotels and looked at different habitats for all the creatures living there. We even found a rabbit burrow!

In Literacy, our stories have also linked to our science topic. We have done Cat, Bramble and Heron for Talk for Writing, which we innovated after we had our trip to the Royal Fort Gardens. After that, we read The Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith. The children loved learning about Max and really enjoyed playing around with the language used in the book. For D&T week, we made puppets of Max – they are truly brilliant! The children have loved playing with their puppets and creating puppet shows.

Maths has also been successful this term: we have worked hard learning about place value and addition and subtraction. Next term: multiplication and division!
