Literacy:  'The Sound Collector' came to Year 2 this week... we learned Roger McGough's poem, then set about creating our own version.  We worked very hard to stick to the 'ABCB' pattern, ensuring the rhyming words came on the right line.
 
Maths:  We've been using inequality signs to compare numbers and challenging ourselves to write our own word problems.
 
Computing:  Our animations are coming along nicely!  We learned how to programme our Sprites and make our scenes come to life!
 
Science:  We have been learning about materials and their properties this week, trying to think like scientists by using technical vocabulary to describe what certain materials are like.
 
We were all very brave on Tuesday as we prepared to fight the 'flu by having our vaccinations... it made our noses really tickly!
 
Congratulations to Isabel who completed another section of her Spelling Log!
 
Finally, we have welcomed Miss Jones' "Quiet Critters" into the classroom... they are little friends who look out for children who are showing the super behaviour we all want to see in Year 2.  Anyone spotted by a Critter goes onto Miss Jones' rainbow and is in with a chance of becoming "Critter of the Day"!
