Wow Work! 2017-18
We are always proud of the work we produce in Year 2. Look here to find the pieces we want to show off!
We started our Summer topic with a monster hunt. We had lots of fun predicting what the monsters would look like and then writing descriptions of them back in class.
Super work to the parents for their spectacular Easter Bonnets. Year 2 enjoyed Experience Easter led by the church, Open the Book Easter (Miss Houghton got to dress up too) and visiting church. These were Miss Houghton's favourite Easter Bonnets.
We had a fabulous visit from the RNLI who helped us learn more about being safe at sea and how the charity works. We couldn't believe it was a free session!
In our computing lessons we have been learning to type and change our font. Ellie, Harvey and Evan worked really hard on their Safari writing.
We have started the term by looking at African Kente Patterns. These great pieces belong to Alfie, Evan and Megan H
We have been redesigning London. We talked about the types of locations, buildings and streets we would need to include. After that we applied our writing skills to write to King Charles II explaining our designs. Ethan and Libby worked really hard in these lessons and produced great independent work.
In art we created a fire wash and then used black paper to create landmarks of the Tudor period. These beautiful creations were completed by Ethan, Izabella, Hayden and Jude
In science we have looked at materials. We made our own 3D models of Tudor houses. Miss Houghton was really impressed with Rudi, Lauren and Ellie's houses.

We have been writing statements about London landmarks. Miss Houghton was really impressed with Lucy, Florence and Ava because they used conjunctions, sub-headings and had beautiful handwriting.
London Underground by Lucy
Some people get on the train and they use an oyster car. If someone didn't have a car they would maybe go on the London Underground but they might also go in a black cab or walk. Interestingly the Underground is a train that runs underground. It is very low down and goes very fast. It runs right through London.
Tower Bridge by Florence
Tower Bridge is 42m tall. From the of Tower Bridge you can see lots of lovely things. You can walk over the bridge and you can drive over, you can even go under it on a boat. In the past, Tower Bridge was not there so you had to go on a boat to get across the River Thames. The River Thames was once frozen for 2 months.
London Eye and Big Ben by Ava
The London Eye is a big wheel and you can see the River Thames. You go around in a cube that is called a pod and it is made of glass. It takes about thirty minutes to get around.
Some people think that Big Ben is an ordinary clock but he's actually a bell. Big Ben lives in Westminster. He plays a tune every fifteen minutes.
Through our topic work we have looked at maps of London and discovered the landmarks. David and James worked together to create a Lego map while Harvey worked with care to produce his map and key.
In maths we have been practising our place value skills and writing the expanded form of 2 digit numbers. Lara, Florence and Ava impressed Miss Houghton with their skills and also their presentation.
Florence also managed to write the expanded form in a different way.
