In English this term we have been learning about recounts. In maths we have been applying our problem solving and also learning to tell the time to the nearest 15 and 5 minutes! As scientists we have been exploring materials and their properties and as historians we have been learning and exploring the Great Fire of London! We even had the opportunity to be in a performance all about the Great Fire of London with our Play in a Day!
Thank you so much for all of your hard work this half term, Year 2T Superstars!!

Spring Term 2 
A great half term. In English we wrote riddles and created our very own riddle book. In maths we have been reasoning and problem solving with fractions, as well as learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We have been learning about Mumbai in India and even visited an Indian restaurant for a wonderful, delicious meal! Well done, Year 2T! 

Spring Term 1
We have had a great start to 2018! In maths we have been learning all about multiplication and division, as well as problem solving. In English we have been writing character descriptions and even helped detectives to find out who had made a mess of Miss Rigby's office! In Science we have been learning about growing up. We have had some great visitors for our Atherton 50 years ago topic and Mrs Goodstadt came in with baby Noah so we could ask her questions about growing up for our PSHE topic! A lot of exciting events.
Well done, Year 2T!

Autumn Term 2 
This has been a fantastic and busy term for Year 2T. In maths we have been looking at addition, subtraction and working with money. In English we have been writing fairy tales and starting to look at non- chronological reports! In Theme we looked at life as a nurse for Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. We even had a nurse visit to tell us all about nursing in modern day! 
Last but not least we had our amazing production that all of the children worked amazingly hard on.
Well done, Year 2T!!

Autumn Term 1

In English we have been poets, using our imaginations to write some brilliant poems based on the seasons. In Science we have been learning about habitats and had a wonderful trip to Blue Planet Aquarium. Check out our photos above! 
Well done Year 2T for a great start to Year 2!
