This week in Year 2

Friday 5th May | 1 comment

This week in Year 2 we have been learning about where chocolate comes from.  We were really surprised when we saw the cacao trees and the cacao pods which were the size of rugby balls!

In English we read the story ‘Some Dogs Do’ by Jez Alborough and watched the ‘Fizzy Lifting Drink’ scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  This inspired us to plan and start to write our own stories about flying.  We will continue these stories next week focusing on editing and improving our writing.

In Maths, we have continued to learn about capacity, focusing on reading and comparing scales.  The children learnt how to read scales going up in different intervals e.g. 1, 2, 5, 10, 50 etc.

In P.E., we have been practising skipping skills.  Children are welcome to bring in their own skipping rope from home to use at playtime. Please make sure these are named.

Have a lovely weekend!

    Finding out about cacao pods sounds interesting and it will be great to read your stories.
    Charlie enjoyed playing the capacity game and we hope to practise skipping this weekend!
