Welcome to Columbus Class

 

We are the Year 2 children at Scissett CE Academy and the oldest children in Key Stage 1. In Year 2, we are working hard to become more independent in our learning and build our confidence but we always make sure we have fun to make our learning experiences memorable and enjoyable.

Our class teacher is Mrs Buckley and she loves to keep us active. Mrs Brook works in our classroom everyday and she is amazing at helping us to stay organised and develop our creativity!

We will be updating our blog frequently to share our learning with you at home – there’s lots of exciting things to come in Year 2!

Columbus Autumn 2022

Learning to Exchange

Year 2 have been super busy progressing their addition learning to exchanging when adding two 2-digit numbers. The children have really enjoyed building their numbers using base ten equipment then exchanging ten ones for one ten.
The children are brilliant at using sentence stems such as 'I notice there are ---- ones which is equal to one ten and ----- ones'. Their mathematical language is developing really strongly. Well done Year 2!
 

Remembrance Day

It has been a busy couple of weeks in school. The children created beautiful art work for Remembrance Day.
 
This year's anti-bullying week theme is all about feeling like you can 'Reach Out'.
Children have worked hard to promote positive messages by designing a poster.

Everyday Materials and their uses

This term in science, Columbus class have been finding all about everyday materials and their uses. The children have been identifying materials and their properties, discussing natural and man-made objects and learning about the process of making materials. This led us to our investigation- what is the best material to make un umbrella? The children worked together testing materials to see if they were strong, light and waterproof by spraying them with water. We had fun and tried our best not to get wet! 

Maths and English

Year 2 have been really active with their learning in both English and Maths. We have done lots of work on Place Value, using concrete manipulative equipment and we have been sequencing the story of The Bog Baby.

Everyone has settled in to school life in Class Columbus really well and made a fantastic start to Year 2.

Columbus class have had a very special visitor! In year 2, our topic this term is knights and castles. We have learnt all about medieval life and what knights got up to over 1000 years ago. We also had the opportunity to hold swords, medieval toys and some extremely heavy armor! 

Columbus class really have had a fantastic, fun-filled day.
