Welcome to Class 2!

Class 2 is a mixed class of Year 2 and Year 3 children. We are an incredibly hard working and friendly group!
 
Our class teacher is Mr Millington and our teaching assistants are Mrs Patience and Mrs Bollon. We are always available and more than happy to help with anything we can.
 
Our topic this term is 'Remember, Remember'. Take a look below at our overview and pictures to see exactly what we are learning about!

What have we been doing?

If you have taken a look through our Autumn term overview, you will have a good idea of what we have been learning about this term.

Below is a selection of just some of the different activities we have been doing in our lessons. We hope you enjoy looking through them as much as we enjoyed doing them!

Science!

In science, our first term was all about magnets and forces. We carried out a variety of different experiments to see how we could test them.
We looked at friction and tested how well cars moved on different materials.
 
We certainly did a lot with magnets! We carried out experiments to see how strong they were by testing how many paperclips they could attract and whether they could still attract magnetic objects through different barriers.
 
We also explored how the different poles on magnets can attract and repel each other. We tested this by attaching one magnet to a toy car and using another magnet to move the car forwards and backwards. The different poles on the magnets allowed us to attract the cars forward and repel them back.

Maths

Our most recent maths units have been geometry, multiplication and division, and measure.

In geometry we were investigating different shapes and their properties. We created our own 2D and 3D shapes using a variety of materials. We also looked at angles and rotation. To explore angles in the real world, we created our own right angle finders and went on a right angle hunt!

In multiplication and division, we used a range of concrete resources to represent our times tables. We used our multiplication and division skills to work out all sorts of practical, pictoral and abstract problems.

In measure we have been investigating all the different things we can measure, the units we need to use and the appropriate equipment to do this with.

Religious Education

In RE we have been looking at Christianity and how God teaches us to be good people.
We have also been looking at Hinduism and comparing how the Hindu faith teaches people how to be good citizens. We explored the Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan. The festival is all about brotherhood, friendship and love. Hindus give out bracelets called rakhis as gifts to one another to celebrate their relationship. We created our own to give to someone we care about.
