Year 2

2019 - 2020

Year 2 enjoyed a science investigation today about which materials we predict will make an ice cube melt the fastest. We started off by plunging our hand into icy water and linking this to what keeps animals warm in Antarctica. We thought about Scott, who didn't wear the right clothes for his expedition there. When we used a protective layer of fat around our hand, we couldn't feel the icy water at all. What can we learn from this for our investigation.....

Times Tables

 

All these children beat their Kung Fu Times Table score from last week - well done!!  They have shown resilience and are aspirational at learning their times tables.

Money

 

In year 2 we have been learning lots about money.  We know what each coin value is and can work out how to find different amounts.  We have counted, added, subtracted, found totals, worked out change and solved reasoning problems all to do with money.  Today we used this knowledge on the computers by playing money games (and apparently didn't do any learning!!).  Tomorrow we are going to create our own shop and have to buy items with our set amount of money.  We must remember to check our change!  What money activities could we do at home?

The children enjoyed coming to school as pirates for Pirate Day. They learnt how to speak like a pirate, draw maps and create a key to describe all the features, as well as use ink to make a detailed drawing of a pirate ship.

 Learning about Money at Minster!

Year 2 have been dong some fabulous learning about money. We have been using methods for counting and showing equal amounts of money too. We have been using Base 10 to help us identify what coins and notes are worth.

 Year 2 have been using their learning to help them make decisions, share opinions and formulate their own viewpoints on Captain James Cook. They so enjoyed thinking about whether he was brave or foolish to go on his trips to Australia. Here we are doing a 'Conscience Corridor' to get across our ideas!

 Counting in 3's in Year 2

 

We have made our own number lines for counting in 3's. We counted out 36 cubes and put them into towers of 3. We found out how many towers we had made and then drew around the Numicon for 3 to label our number line. We can look at our number lines in the classroom for when we count in 3's!

Maths in Year 2

 

We have been learning about place value and what each digit is worth in a number.  We have also been comparing 2-digit numbers using the 'greater than' and 'less than' symbols.  We are learning to use the words, fewer, fewest, least, largest and smallest to describe the order of numbers.
