Spring 2 – Land Ahoy!

Apr 8, 2024 | Year 2 2023/2024

To begin the term, in our English lessons we wrote a detailed recount of our trip to Conkers Educational Center. Next, we enjoyed a new text called ‘The Pirates Next Door’ we looked at the characters in the book and wrote descriptions of these pirates. After, we created our very own pirate and wrote a fantastic character description of this pirate.

In maths, we have continued to explore the four operations, looking more closely at the relationship between multiplication and division. We then completed a unit all about length and height where we learnt how to measure in centimeters and meters.
Within our RE lessons, we have looked at our salvation unit to explore our big question of- Why does Easter matter to Christians? We have explored this question through telling the stories of Holy Week and Easter from the Bible and linking this to salvation.

In our Computing lessons, we have learnt all about how to stay safe online and all about our online reputation and digital footprint.

In science we continued to observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants. We conducted many comparative tests and observed this over time. We also planned seeds in a range of materials to observe and evaluate.

During our Design and Technology lessons we have designed and prepared a party tart for our end of term class party. We began by tasting a variety of foods from the different food groups. Next investigated party food and made our own party tart whilst developing skills including snipping, mixing, grating, peeling, and chopping.

In Geography we have been learning all about explorers from the past and present. We have investigated their work and compared modern day explores to explorers from beyond living memory including Christophor Columbus and Dame Ellen MacArthur.

During Spring 2 we have celebrated our love of reading through World Book Day where we dressed as a character from a book and enjoyed many activities linked to reading and books. We took to the stage to showcase our learning so far for our parents and carers for our class assembly. We ended the term with a fantastic pirate themed day where we dress as pirates, made bandanas, created treasure maps, went on an exciting treasure hunt and help a pirate to unlock the chest. The day was a huge success and enjoyed by all.
