A busy start to Year 2

November 4th, 2018

Willows have settled into Year 2 and have been working hard. We have been busy in literacy thinking about conjunctions and contractions. The children have recently enjoyed the story ‘You can’t take an elephant on a bus’ and are busy writing their own version. The children have learnt about place value in maths and used this knowledge for addition and subtraction. They seem to love using the column method! In art we have looked at Van Gogh and created a landscape painting and a pastel version of Starry Night (photos to follow shortly). We have looked at transport in the past and are looking forward to our trip to Haynes Motor Museum.

Cricket Skills at Bryanston

June 3rd, 2018

The Friday before half term Willows were invited to a morning of cricket activities at Bryanston. Despite being tired as it was the end of term we all took part and found the energy to run around!

Science

May 3rd, 2018

Are more expensive paper towels more absorbent? We tested four different paper towels – the cheapest was a supermarket own brand, then we had a school paper towel, Plenty and the most expensive was a brand called Regina at £2 a roll!

We timed how long it took for the eater to reach a line we drew on each paper towel. The results – One sheet of plenty is not enough! School paper towels were the clear winners!
