We had our own shop set up in class and had to use exactly the right coins to pay for the different items
Year 2TL received a strange, but wonderful, letter from the land of the dragons! In this letter it told us that we needed to write a set of instructions on how to make a magic medicine to wake all the sleeping dragons! We all worked very hard at writing our instructions using some very strange ingredients! All these strange ingredients were delivered to our class and we had to follow the instructions carefully to make the medicine. If it fizzed and bubbled then we had made it correctly. Can you see if we made it correctly or not?
The Great Fire of London
Our class assembly was all about The Great Fire of London. We learnt lots of interesting things about the fire and about Samuel Pepy’s diary. The children all spoke beautifully with really loud, clear voices!
Year 2TL visited the Synagogue in Giffard Park to find out about where Jewish people worship. At the Synagogue, the children learnt about the similarities and differences that it has to a Christian Church. They were able to have a look at lots of special items that are kept in a synagogue; have a go at writing some Hebrew letters and they even got to read from the Torah.
Primary Engineers’ Day – St Paul's School
Year 2TL became primary engineers, designing and making their own cars on our trip to St Paul’s. Using an old shoe box as the base for their car, the children decorated it using lots of different materials. Once the axle and wheels were put on to their cars the testing began. The children let their cars roll down a ramp and measured whose vehicle went the furthest. The children had a great day. Thank you St Paul’s School for organising it.
Year 2 Scientists
Year 2TL visited Linford Lakes Nature Reserve on 4th October. The children collected and identified a variety of mini-beasts which live in different habitats and discussed how each insect was adapted to the place where it was found. They went pond-dipping and insect-hunting, learnt how to identify types of trees and found out about the life-cycle of a plant. Great fun with great learning!
In our maths lesson we made our own 2 and 3 digit numbers and then ordered them from the smallest to the biggest.
