Welcome to Year Two - Green Class
Welcome to Green Class where Mrs Sian Grant is the Class Teacher and Mrs Sabrina Cheung is the Teaching Assistant. The children follow the expectation of the National Curriculum and the learning is carefully planned to ensure that all children are motivated and excited to learn.
In computing we showcased all of our fantastic learning from this term and created our own series of videos! Each video was about a different element of our learning. Before we created our videos we completed some research on a search engine to find some interesting facts about our chosen topic.
In D.T we used mechanisms to create a moving rainforest scene! We each made our own Kapok tree, which is the tree from our guided reading book "The Great Kapok Tree". We then chose our own animal to climb up and down the tree. Some children chose to use a reel and others chose sliders. We had so much fun!
In maths we have been learning to identify equal and unequal groups.
We have been making sure we explain how we know whether a group is equal or unequal.
In Science, we have been learning all about habitats! We have already identified habitats around Falmouth so today we learnt all about microhabitats. We went on a hunt around the school grounds to find different microhabitats and the animals that live in them.
In science, we are learning about different habitats and the animals that live in them. We went on a trip to Kimberly park, Swanpool lake and Gylly beach in search of different animals in their habitats.
We found ducks, swans, shrimp, a starfish, crabs, anemones and lots of bugs!
It was a fantastic day of exploring!
For our motivator day this term we dressed up as explorers!
We explored the world and learnt all about the 7 continents and 5 oceans.
It was a great day!
The children put everything they learnt together to create a self-portrait of themselves as either miners or Bal Maidens.
We drew our first attempts and then gave each other lots of feedback. With this feedback we were then able to make our alterations to the pictures.
We are so proud of all the progress we made!
This term our topic is 'Marvelous Mining'!
For our history motivator day we learnt all about local Cornish mines (Geevor, King Edward Mine and South Crofty Mine).
We made our classroom like mine by putting all the tables together and passing 'ore' from one end of the tunnel to the other.
We learnt that miners ate pasties for lunch so we made our own pasties too! They were very tasty!
To celebrate National Numeracy Day we dressed up as what we want to be when we are older.
When then thought about how we will use maths in our future dream jobs.
In R.E we have been learning about how Christians celebrate Christmas. We learnt all about Christingles and the meaning behind them. We were then able to make our own!
In R.E we have been learning about the Christmas Story.
We recreated the Christmas story and acted out different roles.
In Maths we have been learning to add together three 1 digit numbers. We used a tens frame and 3 different coloured cubes to help us. Each coloured cube represented a number. We looked at identifying the number bonds to 10 first and then added on the remaining number.
In D.T we have been busy researching different flapjacks recipes. Once we had decided which healthy ingredients to add into our flapjacks we designed and then made our flapjacks!
For World Kindness Day we wrote postcards to a local nursing home in the hope of making them smile. We even wrote our own joke!
After we made our boats we we tested them out to see if we had successfully met our design criteria (waterproof, strong/stable and buoyant).
As you can see, we were very excited!
Using the results from our Science experiment we made our very own toy boats!
We made our boats out of either wood or plastic as we found these materials were most suitable.
In Science we have been investigating which material would be best to make a toy boat.
These photos show our science experiment!
We completed a fair test to see which materials would be most suitable. We were testing to see if they were buoyant, waterproof and strong/stable.
In Geography we have been learning to use a compass.
Stinkbeard the pirate wrote us some instructions to find his buried treasure! We used a compass to follow the directions he gave us.
