Stephenson Railway Museum.

What a fantastic trip Y2S have had today!

We loved the museum and learning all about George Stephenson. We  made some super 3D models about George and his impressive inventions. We were all super well behaved and were outstanding ambassadors for Harton Primary. Miss Smith, Mrs Jay and Miss McPherson are so proud of the class and are looking forward to our next class trip out!

Parents’ Maths Workshop 1

 

A huge thank you to the parents who were able to attend the first maths workshop. This week we have been thinking about the place value of different numbers. We looked at how the children use Base 10 to make concrete representations of numbers and investigated how Hundred Squares can be used to identify patterns in numbers. Finally, we looked at a selection of problems the children are learning to solve.

Next week we will be looking at addition and subtraction.

Health and Well-Being Week

We have had a fantastic week in Year 2 this week celebrating Health and Well-Being week. We have learned about how to keep our bodies and mind healthy. There have been lots of fun activities we have taken part in, but we really enjoyed making a healthy meal with Mrs Seals our cook!

Around the world

We loved learning about the continents and oceans last half term. We investigated different countries within each continent. Here are some pictures from our adventures in Asia and Europe. We also investigated Australia, writing a postcard and making a Maori tribal mask, as well as Africa, North and South America. We’ve used lots of skills including researching, creating, reading and writing. We’ll be looking at Antarctica this half term.

Samaritans Purse – What Goes in My Shoebox

 

Learning about Judaism

Year 2 enjoyed our visit from Kim Johnstone, who taught us about the Jewish faith and the festival of Hannukah. We learnt about the synagogue and tried to speak a little bit of Hebrew. She was very impressed with how knowledgeable the children in Year 2 are!

Year 2 are super healthy!

We had a fantastic trip to the Harvester. We got to play on the play area and then we tried and tasted some of the vegetables that the Harvester have to offer. We even tried some new things that we had never tried before!
