We have had a really busy start to 2023! Year 2 have been learning how to add and subtract using sticks and bricks to help us, we have all had a lot of fun and can now add and subtract two digit numbers! We have also been learning about the artist Henri Matisse. We began by learning how we can mix primary colours together to make secondary colours, we even had a go ourselves! We then used this knowledge to help create art work for our sketchbooks and displays around school! This month we have also had some visitors from Sunderland University who performed a fantastic dance piece for us, we then played games that helped us learn about how we can recycle. In class, we then learnt about how to keep safe on the internet and played a game to help us. Finally, we have began our science experiment testing the importance of washing our hands. We are so excited to see the results and will show you our results in next months update!


We have had a great month! We have learnt how to find different pages in non-fiction books by using the contents page and we have learnt a lot about the properties of different shapes. We then began our topic of Amelia Earhart, we really enjoyed using our iPads and books to research who Amelia was and why she was so influential to women in particular. To reward us for all of our hard work we celebrated Valentine’s Day by having a spectacular disco which we all really enjoyed! We then continued on our learning journey in geography, learning about the seven continents and we finished off the month by learning about how to make our own digital art in the ICT suite! Finally, we have seen lots of changes in our bread from last month, some have turned lots of different colours due to the mould, and some of our bread didn’t change at all, we must have clean hands!
