We were very lucky in Y2 today as we had a special visitor called Becky. She came in to talk to us about what makes Kenya special as part of our new topic. She also showed us some of the differences between Nairobi and Sheffield which was very interesting!
In Year 2 we have been exploring measuring using cm and m.
Yesterday we set the challenge of measuring the length of the classroom. Here are some of pictures of the children trying to solve how to do it!
In Year 2, we always love a challenge and yesterday most the children showed great resilience towards some very tricky Maths.
Here is Y2HMs range of ways to represent one answer.
Now we have had both our dress days due to the snow, here are some pictures.
We have had a fabulous time of the ice pad in Y2 – we showed great resilience to keep going!
We had a fantastic day at Manor Lodge yesterday learning about the Tudors.
We saw Sheffield’s oldest toilet, dressed up as servants and rich children and found out what they ate.
Here are some photos.
This afternoon, we were given assembly time to learn or practice how to play board game.
We demonstrated so many of the learning principles from solve problems, learn together and be positive.
It has shown what resilient learner who have in Year 2 that can play so well together and keep go to find new strategies for winning!
Special mention to Rayyan and Sofia who played their game for draughts for the whole 30 minutes with no winner!
We have had an interesting afternoon investigating how different objects can be changed.
We started by deciding that the same piece of paper can be changed by being folded, squished and rolled.
We then looked at lots of different objects to see if they can be bent, squashed, twisted or stretched. The children then had to think about why this was.
This afternoon we have been learning about basic needs of all living things .
We starting imagining that we were going to space and discussed what we need to survive. The children then decided on the three most important ones.
We then made links to other animals and what they need to survive. One child had a great discussion point about what fish need and how they need water in a different way to us.
We moved on further to talking about how we care for our pet – here are some examples of these.
