Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Follow our learning journey below, here you will find regular updates from our time in class  and any useful links and documents you may need.  

 

 

There and back again... 

 

Our whole school topic for this half term is called 'There and back again'. We will be travelling back in time to learn about what life was like during the 19th century. We will learn about Queen Victoria and why she was such an important individual. We will also look at famous Victorian inventions and how they have impacted our lives today. 

We are looking forward to our trip to the Norfolk railway on the 20th of September where we will have the chance to see what life was like for a Victorian child. 

 

 

 

 

Year 2 had another great science day in which we learnt the science behind the famous 'Coke and Mentos' experiment. 

We learnt about different states of matter and how coke is filled with a gas called carbon dioxide. When the Mentos are dropped into the coke lots of tiny gas bubbles form around it and as the mint drop this gas is released and pushes the coke out of the bottle. 

 

We made lots of different predictions and tested these in the afternoon.

Science Day 10.10.18

WC: 17.09.18: Year 2 had a great trip to the North Norfolk railway on Thursday. We started the day by boarding an old steam train that took us from Sheringham to Holt. We learnt what it was like to be a Victorian child at school and at home. We also spoke to a man who worked on the railway who told us what his life was like. It was great fun and the weather didn't dampen our spirits! (more pictures to follow)

WC: 17.09.18. We have been learning about Queen Victoria and will be writing a newspaper article about her. This week we have been reading newspapers and learning about what features you may find in one

WC: 10.09.18: In computing this week we have been learning how to make pictographs. We took a list of numbers and turned that into a pictograph using a programme called 'J2Code'.
