Science - Healthy Living

As part of our topic on Survival, Year 2 have been finding out how to stay fit and healthy. We have learnt that you should be active for 1 hour every day! You could do lots of types of exercise like cycling and swimming. We completed a round robin of exercise and thought about how our bodies changed from the start of the session to the end. Do you do enough exercise?

DT - Pizza making!

This week, Year 2 have been making Pizza characters for a new Traction Man story. First we designed our character, then we worked in groups to make the dough. After it had risen, we learned how to use a knife safely to prepare our toppings. We then added them to our pizza base before cooking them in the oven. It was great fun!

Maths - Place Value

This term we have been thinking about the place value in number. We have learned how to use dienes to show how many tens and units are in a number, and we used our understanding to work out which number was greater than, or less than another. We have to remember that the crocodile always eats the BIGGEST number!
