Wow! Year 2 have started back with a great attitude to learning and curiosity surrounding our new topics.
In Maths we starting learning about capacity, exploring the terms full, empty and refreshing our fractions knowledge to talk about half empty. We enjoyed lots of practical lessons and conducted a fantastic experiment to see which everyday container has the greatest capacity.
In Geography we are comparing Kenya and the UK. The children are fascinated by Kenya, the differences in seasons, temperature and construction of houses. We sorted photographs to decide if they are were photos of the UK or Kenya – many children were surprised to discover that Kenya had cars or blocks of flats! We have also learnt where Kenya is located and can find it on a globe and in atlases.
