We will work towards adding and subtracting two 2-digit numbers and solving problems. We will then move on to Multiplication and Division where our focus will be the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and related division facts. The children will also complete their learning on Capacity before moving on to Money.

Plants

Children investigated the needs of four different plants. We made predictions and observed the plants over a 3-week period. Children described how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy.

Materials

Year 2 investigated different materials to begin to understand why different objects float. We made predictions, discussed observations and recorded our findings. Some foil boats designed by pupils held over 100 marbles! Find some photos from our experiment below:

Animals

Positive learning experiences, as Year 2 gently held little Spring chicks and listened to a talk about a pet tortoise. Lots of questions and discussion.
