A Day In The Life of Year 2

This week Australia and New Zealand class have been working with a school in Harare, Zimbabwe.

We started the week by writing letters to our new pen pals at Helenic Primary School in Harare, Zimbabwe.

We then planned our own video about Thomas Buxton Primary School and London in groups of three.

We thought back to our work in Geography to describe to our pen pals the physical and human features of geography.

Finally we created our video and sent it to our pen friends in Zimbabwe.

What do you think of our video? Leave a comment below!

Year 2 become database experts!

This week in Year 2 we have been combining our science, maths and computing topics.

This week in maths we have been learning how to create a block graph and a tally chart. (Zayn, Maya and Maria).

This week in science we have been learning about living things and their habitats. (Mahdi, Mahlia and Nour).

We sorted animals into the groups “Living” and “Never alive.” (Adam).

Then we went to the Secret Garden because we wanted to find mini beasts. (Naila and Madhia).

When we got back into the classroom we made a tally chart and then a pictogram. (Fazzilet and Sulaiman)

In computing we sorted animals into different criteria using picture cards. (Naira)

We then made the same work using an iPad. (Iqra)

Finally, we made a branching database about the animals we have been learning about (Halima and Saihaan).

We had lots of fun!
