Welcome to 2RH!
The children had a great time on beach day riding the donkeys, rock pooling and building sand castles, eating fish and chips for lunch, making rock creatures and enjoying ice creams from the ice cream van. It was almost as if we were at the beach with all the lovely sunshine too!
Our Year 2 trip to Harlow Carr
We had lots of fun on our recent visit to Harlow Carr Gardens near Harrogate. The children spent the day exploring the woodland area, playing on the adventure playground, searching for seeds and planting their very own seeds to take home. We all had a great day, we learnt lots and the sun was shining!
World Book Day 2018
The children had great fun on World Book Day dressing up as their favourite book characters, reading with their parents and taking part in lots of fun reading activities planned throughout the day.
As part of our topic on habitats the children worked in pairs to design and make a habitat for an animal of their choice. We are very proud of the finished results!
The children had great fun recently taking part in a skipping workshop to help prepare us for a skipping competition against other schools in the area after Christmas. We learnt lots of new skills including bounce, double bounce and skipping with a friend. Keep practising at home!
In maths we have been learning all about multiplication and trying hard to become 'Masters of Multiplication'. Have a look at some pictures of what we have been doing.
Please have a look below to see some of the brilliant things we have been doing this half term.
The children have been using their increasing understanding of how numbers are made to help add, subtract and partition (split) 2 digit numbers in different ways. They used base 10 as a resource to help with their understanding.
The children created self portraits in the style of Lichtenstein. Can you guess each person in the pictures?
The children also enjoyed writing cat poems using all the new language we have been learning about in class. Can you spot the interesting sentence starters and any similes they have used?
