On Friday we visited Ipswich museum, and the children had lots of fun exploring each room and finding out lots of information from the past.
I was very impressed with everyone's behaviour! Well done 2ZP!
This week we are focusing on seaside holidays and have been learning about Bathing machines. The children have all designed a Bathing hut and we will be making a moving model using wood!
Our current topic is Now and Then, and so far we have all thoroughly enjoyed learning about homes in the past. We have been able to identify household appliances and compare them to ones we use now. Our favourite activity was designing and making a Victorian house using recycled materials. I was very impressed with 2ZP’s creativity and everyone worked collaboratively just like Mandy Meerkat!
Our amazing Victorian house!
Welcome back 2ZP! I hope you all had a fantastic half term holiday.
Our new topic is Jurassic Park, and already the children are full of excitement! The corridors have been transformed into a jungle full of leaves and vines to explore. We also found an amazing discovery on the playground!
The children think that it is a bone belonging to a dinosaur so we are going to investigate this and will let you know what we find out!
We have been continuing to learn about Artists, and finishing our work inspired by Claude Monet and Andy Warhol. The children's work is of an incredibly high standard and everyone has enjoyed using paint, pastel and clay.
I hope you enjoy looking at the work!
Well done 2ZP!
What another excellent week in 2ZP!
In maths we have been looking at shape. We found lines of symmetry, right angles and even managed to sort shapes into a carroll diagram.
We have been exploring the life of Claude Monet, the famous artist! The children liked 'Waterlily Pond' so we have been very busy painting our own version. Instead of using a paintbrush we used our fingers, which was very exciting and fun! We even created different shades of green by mixing colours.
We are building up the layers one at the time, so we have still got some painting left to do.
What fantastic paintings!
Welcome to Year Two!
I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday and had lots of fun!
The children have made a fantastic start to the year and have settled into our routines well.
It was lovely to meet so many of you last week for our information afternoon, and I hope you found it useful. I will be updating our class page each week, and I hope you enjoy following our learning.
Our current topic is 'When I grow up' and the children have thoroughly enjoyed finding out about how we change as we get older and looking at their own achievements. The children painted a self portrait and thought about what job they would like when they are older.
I have been very impressed with the standard of homework and the amount of children reading regularly, well done 2ZP. Keep up the fantastic work!
