Summer Term 2018
This half term (Summer 1, 2018) Year 2 have been working extremely hard. Our topic for summer term is ‘Why does it taste so good?’ The children have been fascinated learning all about chocolate and the history behind it. We had a tasting day, indulging in a variety of chocolate treats and rating them. We decided to design our own chocolate bar and created a wrapper. What great imaginations we have!
As our Maths and English lessons we have focused on SATs preparation. The children have showcased their skills and should be very proud of themselves. We can confidently apply the four calculations to real life problems and can even tell the time! We love playing our daily game of maths champions, we have cracked our 2,3,5 and 10 timetables and are now working on the corresponding division facts.
This half term we have wrote numerous pieces of writing, from instructions on how to make a chocolate bar, to a newspaper report on the royal wedding. The children are working extremely hard on their handwriting and the ingredients to make a perfect, polished piece of writing.
In Science, we have been learning all about plants and germination, we have carried out a couple of experiments and were shocked by our predictions.
Next half term, we will continue to learn about chocolate and in Science we will be learning about Animals and Humans. We are very excited for our trip to the Life Centre in Newcastle.
