Autumn Overview

 

We have had such a fun Autumn Term in Year 2 Cedar Class. In English we read a fantastic story called the ‘Mousehole Cat’. We discovered that the cat’s favourite food was fish, so we decided to try out one of his recipes ‘Salmon Pate’. It was so fun to make! After, we had tasted it (mixed reviews), we rewrote the instructions using time connectives. In maths we made our very own Christmas drinks to learn about capacity. We used measuring beakers to ensure we had the correct amount of liquid. It was tricky because we also had to use our knowledge of addition, and make sure we were using the correct unit of measurement!  In science, we learnt about materials. We really giggled at some of the ‘silly scenarios’ e.g. a teapot made out of chocolate. We thought really hard about what would be the most suitable material and why. We are looking forward to seeing what we learn about during Spring Term in science. Our trip this term was to the RNLI centre in Chiswick, where we learnt so much! Our favourite part was having the opportunity to ask real RNLI rescuers questions. We really are such an inquisitive class. Most importantly this term we made sure that we kept to our classroom motto ‘Kindness is Magic’.

 

 



 Spring Overview

 

We have had such a fun Spring Term in Year 2 Cedar Class. In English we read a fantastic story by one of our favourite authors called ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. We discovered that there was a chocolate river that a greedy character called Augustus Gloop fell into. We decided to write stunning descriptions of the chocolatey, velvety river into which he fell. It was so fun to use ambitious adjectives! In maths we have been very busy using a very grown up method called column addition and subtraction.  In geography, we learnt all about a non-European distant place called Paraty. We looked at human and physical similarities and differences between Chiswick and Paraty. We discovered that Paraty grows cocoa beans that make chocolate which linked perfectly to our English book. We are looking forward to seeing what we learn about next term in Geography. In science, we have been learning about ‘humans’, our favourite lesson was learning how to stay healthy and making yummy fruit skewers. One of our best moments this term was performing our class assembly on ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, we really are natural performers and loved singing the oompa loompa song. Most importantly this term we made sure that we kept to our classroom motto ‘Kindness is Magic’.
