Year 2

Spring 1

Year 2 have been studying the Inspirational Florence Nightingale. Through our guided reading, English, history and geography we have discovered facts about her life in great detail. We also related it to improvements in hospitals and nursing today. The children have used persuasive writng in different contexts to explain their understanding.

During our guided reading sessions the class text  introduced another inspirational woman called Mary Seacole. Both women were amazing role models that changed our lives forever even though they had many obstacles in their path. 

Autumn Term

We have had a great start to the new year and being in Year 2!

We have been using lots of different maths equipment to help us with our understanding of place value. We have worked in pairs to learn about tens and ones using dienes and place value cards.

We are beginning our topic of "London - Now and Then" and looking at how life is very different now in London compared to many years ago... they didn't even have cars! The children watched and participated in an amazing workshop where the topic was brought to life. The children learned what the life was like at this time and struggles they may have had. The children can now share their experiences with you. Enjoy!
