At Henley Green, we read every day. Reading records should be signed by an adult and brought with the reading book into school every day.

 

 

Spellings and maths revision will be given out on a Friday and glued into reading records. These will be tested the following Friday and the results entered onto the slip in the reading record.

 

 

P.E. Friday afternoon 

A kit of white, green or black t-shirt and shorts, (no logos, pictures or writing please). A pair of pumps or trainers are required for outdoor P.E. All kit, including footwear, should be named and placed in a named bag to avoid losing items.

In Science, we hopped, skipped and jumped to find out what happens to our bodies after exercise. It was very tiring!

In ICT, we took photos on the Ipads and used the editing tool. We had great fun, changing the colour of the photos, zooming in and cropping!

What a fun day! smiley

Today, we experienced activities and food from France! Each child learnt how to sing head, shoulders, knees and toe in French, draw the Eiffel Tower in charcoal, played boules in PE and finally, tried camembert, crossiants, french bread and madeline cakes.

On Friday, Year 2 went to Weston-Super-Mare! The children got to try fish and chips, buy their own rock, play on the beach, eat ice-cream and play games on the pier. We had a fabulous time smiley

Hand Washing.

As part of our Science investigations, we learnt about the importance of hand washing. The children had great fun singing the 'Happy Birthday' song whilst they were washing their hands, to show how long, we should wash our hands for. 

After that, we created informative posters to show other children how to wash their hands properly. Good job Year 2! laugh

Ready for the Spring/Summer months, we planted tomato seeds. Each child planted six seeds carefully. We investigated what plants need to grow well too. 

Year 2 will be selling these, once they have grown, to help towards our Weston-Super-Mare trip. Exciting!

We are United!

As part of Topic, Year 2 recreated United Kingdom's flag. They had to carefully cut out the Northern Ireland, Scotland and England flag. Can you remember why the Welsh flag was not included?

Science Week!
As part of National Plastic Awareness Week, the children collected all their plastic rubbish and recycled it. We cut small, collage like, pieces to glue onto a fish to make it decorative and shiny. They looked fabulous! Well done Year 2! smiley

Making bird cake. 

Y2 made bird cake! To do this, we melted the butter, added some seeds and spooned the mixture into a cup. We popped it in the fridge to make sure all the cake stuck together, ready for the birds to eat throughout the Winter.

We are Gardeners! 

Ready for the Winter, all children in Year Two planted daffodil bulbs in the raised flower beds. Secondly, we visited the Wildlife Garden to help start creating a Bluebell wood. We used a dotting tool to make a small hole in the hard ground, collected a bluebell bulb and popped it into the hole carefully. Finally, we made sure the hole was covered by fresh soil. 

We wore special gardening gloves to make sure our hands did not get itchy!smiley

We are Poetry Performers.

Year 2 learnt the poem, Fireworks by James Reeves. We added actions to help us remember all three stanzas. We performed Mr Walters, he was very impressed! smiley

Today, we became astronauts! We learnt how to do a whole turn, half turn and a quarter turn. The children created instructions to direct the child from the Earth hoop to the Moon hoop. We used commands, such as: Forward, jump and step.

As Scientists, the children were identifying the properties of materials and sorting objects in groups. The groups were: wood, plastic, metal and fabric.

As Mathematicians, we solve problems!

The children had two dice. Each pair had to roll the dice and then, find the total. From this, they were able to add and subtract one and two digit numbers, use their place value skills and solve one step problems.

Silly Billy!

To help support Year Two with their instruction writing, they made worry dolls. The worry dolls were inspired by Anthony Browne's story, Silly Billy. They followed the success criteria successfully.
