In the eyes of God, every child matters, every moment of every day

In the eyes of God, every child matters, every moment of every day

Friday 7th June 2024

This week we have been learning about the 'zh' sound represented by an 's' in our spellings.
i.e. treasure, pleasure, television, collision, exposure, composure, enclosure.

The children have come back from half-term ready for their learning and we are now on the final part of our Year 2 journey!

The children have enjoyed having a sneak peek into our new Power of Reading book, visualising the character of 'Egg Box Dragon' through the description in the story and have created their very own Egg Box Dragons out of junk modelling materials.

In Maths this week we have been learning about the vocabulary associated with position and direction, thinking about how we can describe where things are and how we get from one place to another. Children have been learning about clockwise and anticlockwise, and different turns.

We introduced our new Global Learning Goal 'Decent Work and Economic Growth' on Wednesday where we walked up to Buckden High Street and located all of the different places of employment, and the job opportunities available within these places. We were lucky enough to have a chat with the Manager of Annafield Estate Agents who told us about her job and the path she took to get into her career!

The children have enjoyed Art and Computing this week where we have learned about our Artist, LS Lowry who painted pictures of industrial scenes, and in Computing we recreated a range of impressionist Artwork on the laptops, using Purple Mash and 2PaintaPicture to help us!

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Freeman, Mrs Farmer and the Year 2 Team
