Year Group Focus - Year 2

Last week it was science week and the focus was time. In year 2 we based our time experiment on timing how long different jellies would take to set. We chose different ingredients to put inside our jellies and made our predictions on which jelly would set first. 


As part of the Geography theme in year 2 we are studying Kenya and comparing the similarities and differences to Rochdale. To enhance our knowledge further we are studying the African traditions and how different their lives are to ours in Rochdale. The children loved learning about the Masai tribes and enjoyed making African jewellery. Continuing with the African theme in art we are studying an African artist called Edward Tinga Tinga. His work is based around drawing patterns in African animals. The children will be creating their own pictures of animals filled with African patterns. 


In English we have been writing a narrative based on the story ‘Wild’ by Emily Hughes. The children enjoyed reading this story and wrote some wonderful narratives and had to think carefully about how and where they could add in the key features.


We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the parents that came to our year 2 reading morning. The children really enjoyed reading to all the adults.
