We have been learning about our own talents and things that we might find difficult. After reading The Dot by Peter Reynolds,we learned that we can make our own mark in life.... we can all be imaginative  and express our ideas. We've made wonderful dot designs and learned what kind words people think about us. 
We have made really good attempts to place events in time.... EVEN BEFORE WE WERE BORN....... AND EVEN BEFORE MRS GOULDING WAS BORN!  Now that's a long time ago. We made time lines and used our school time line to see the dinosaurs. (That wasn't when Mrs Goulding was born). 
Shirley Hughes wrote Dogger. She is a children's author and illustrator AND she came from WEST KIRBY. We have been sketching in the style of Shirley and have practised mixing primary colours the make secondary colours to make water colour washes over her work. 

File is transcoding, please wait...

We are here to help you learn. We'll be following our school rules too.
Year 2 have been busy looking at the globe, atlases and world maps to spot the UK. We have looked at the British Isles and labelled a map of them with capital cities and the flags for each country. Which flags do you know?

After reading Dogger by Shirley Hughes, we have been learning about prepositions to describe where objects may be. Can you remember where they all had to look for Dogger using prepositions? Where was Dogger? We used our prepositions to describe objects around our classroom.
We have been listening to South African music. We have listened out for the pulse and heard the vocal line to check who is singing and how many are singing. We have practised the lyrics to HANDS FEET HEART by Joanna Mangona. What do you think so far? We are adding percussion next time. 
How lucky are we to have so many GREEN spaces around our school? We have been busy drawing maps and making a key to show our school. We have used our walk, aerial photographs and have used a floor plan to help us. We have used Google Earth to find other green spaces around our world . Have a look at home with an adult's permission to use the internet.
Where are the most green areas? Why do you think this is?

We have been studying the work of Edward Lear. He was known as a Victorian Trickster of nonsense poetry. We have loved reading  and writing about The Owl and the Pussy Cat. We have even recited the poem for you. What do you think?
