Year 2 Blog 2022-2023

The children enjoyed working with numbers this week. They partitioned two digit numbers into tens and ones. They used dienes, straws, counters, bead strings, ten frames and other practical resources to make different amounts. They also had a go at writing numbers with words. 
We made animal finger puppets and their habitats. Children were very creative with their ideas and they all look amazing. 
In RE we talked about being thankful for the food that we eat. We explored how bread is being baked, starting from seed ending up as food on our tables. We tasted different bread and baked one in school following a simple recipe. 
We also watched a live harvest assembly and attempted to make a giant human harvest combiner. 
Our visit to Ely library was a success. We read lots of books, listened to stories and borrowed some book to read in school. 
We had a lovely time in the allotment cooking flat bread. It tasted delicious with some strawberry and apricot jam on top. 
Diwali activity morning was a success. Children painted their hands with Mindi patterns, made firework pictures, dressed up in traditional Indian clothes, made a card, printed patters, decorated rangoli patters, looked at Indian artefacts and many more interesting activities. 
Our Christmas production was a magical 'Miracle in Town'. Well done Year 2, we are very proud!
