Year 2 - Autumn 2

This half term we read The Way Home For Wolf. We were inspired to create our own images of the Northern Lights and did some beautiful writing to go with these. 

 

The children's work is on display in the hall and it looks absolutely stunning.

The children worked extremely hard to produce the above work. This included making amendments to their drafts in their books! They were all super independent learners during this process! 

In RE we considered why light is used as a symbol. 

We learned all about the Jewish celebration of Hannukah and why the Dreidl game is played, as well as why 9 candles are lit on a menorah. 

 

We then learned all about advent and why we light the candles on an advent ring. You can see all of our work in our Learning Journeys.

In maths we looked at fractions, time and place value! 

In the second part of Autumn 2, the children read The Polar Express. The writing outcome for this book was to produce an independent recount. 

 

The children were taken on an adventure to the North Pole after Miss Selby turned the classroom into a train! The children got to drink chocolate milk, say hi to Santa and they even got a silver bell at the end of the journey! 

 

In the lead up to this they got to know the story of the Polar Express really well through some reading activities. 

 

Check out the photos below of their journey and the work that they produced. 

This half term we had an elf on the shelf in Squirrel Class. He wasn't very naughty but he got up to some strange things in our classroom, including taking selfies with Wilf the Wolf! 

During Autumn 2 we learned all about remembrance day and why remembering is so important! During growing time we made these poppy sun catchers.
