In Year 2 we carried out a Science Investigation into which Snail would be the quickest and win the race.
We raced different sized snails and predicted that the biggest snail would be the quickest.
However, what we found was that the smallest snail was the quickest.
If you’ve been into Year 2 recently, you may notice something growing on our windowsill…
It’s our bean plants, of course!
We’ve been learning all about different fruits and vegetables and what plants need to grow and we’re successfully growing our own bean plants with a little bit of soil, some seeds, water and sunlight.
Here we are planting our seeds…
During our Maths lessons this week we have been learning all about temperature including what it means and how it affects us.
On Monday children brainstormed what they knew about temperature and we had some great responses including:
“Temperature is High or Low” “degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit” “Temperature is a measure of how hot or cold something is”
Children were then given the opportunity to estimate the temperature of 3 cups of water – one cold, one warm and one hot. After they’d estimated the temperature they were given a thermometer to see how accurate their estimations were and these were recorded in a table which can be found in their Maths books.
Below you can see some picture of the children measuring the temperature of the water with their thermometers.
Following a lovely assembly by Year 1 on the theme of Mothering Sunday, Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed making cards for their very special moms.
We love our moms and hope that they have a lovely day!

Today, in Year 2 we had our first pupil prayer service led by Omari with the help of Ethan and Maya. The children chose a prayer service around the theme of Lent and asked for purple cloth, a cross and some candles to be our focal point. We began by making the Lenten sign of the cross and the three children led us in our class prayer.
Following this, Omari read a small reading from The Way of the Cross. Children were given time to reflect upon what they had learned and a small pebble was passed around and children had the opportunity to respond to what they’d heard.
On behalf of Year 2 we’d like to thank Omari, Ethan and Maya for a beautiful prayer service. You’ve really modelled how to create a calm environment that offers us time to reflect.
