We have had a wonderful start to year 2 in 2S. We have been learning about lots of different things in the last few weeks. We have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. We know that the fire destroyed lots of big,wooden houses We drew some Tudor houses for the front cover of our topic books. We wrote our own setting descriptions using lots of adjectives and expanded noun phrases. We wrote some acrostic poems about fire in our topic books. As part of our sparkly start we became bakers for the morning and baked our own delicious bread. We had lots of fun! This week we are going to become reporters and write interview questions for Samuel Pepys.

In maths we have been learning how to partition numbers into tens and ones using chips and peas. We have also been learning how to partition numbers in different way and count ten more and ten less.

In Science we have been learning about different scientists and inventors. Last week we learned about the inventor Charlies Macintosh who invented waterproof fabric. Today we carried out an experiment to see whether some tin foil, a paper towel, cling film and a piece of felt were waterproof. We made a prediction and recorded the results in our science books.

We have been busy practising our singing for the Harvest Festival on Friday and cannot wait to perform!
