Year 2 Times Tables Fest!

Year 2 have been taking responsibility for their own learning and can now use lots of different strategies to learn their times tables. Ask a Year 2 to show you their times table rap! Year 2 need to know the 2, 3, 5, 10 times tables facts (including related division)....

Toilet Paper Solar System

Over the past few weeks Elms have been using scale to represent the size of planets in our solar system.  Today, we did a similar experiment to find out the distance each planet was from the sun - using toilet paper. Each square of toilet paper represented 10 million...

Our Solar System: scale factors and properties of circles

This week in our topic lesson we have compared the sizes of our Solar System's planets. We used a pair of compasses to draw the inner planets; however, we encountered a problem with the gas giants (outer planets) - they were too big. We decided to improvise and use...

Fabulous Fractions

As a reward for all of their hard work on fractions over the last few weeks, the Bluebells completed their learning by competing against each other and playing the Yo-Ho fraction game; using their knowledge and skills to find unit and non-unit fractions of number....

Super Snowmen 3D shapes

Today Year 2 have been creating 3D shapes from nets. It was very tricky and took a lot of concentration but just look at the results! We made cylinders, triangular prisms, cones, cuboids, square based pyramids and...

Investigating Shapes in Year 2

Year 2 have been investigating the properties of 2D  shapes. We have been comparing regular and irregular shapes and we can explain the difference between symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes. We have started looking at 2D shape faces on 3D shapes. We can't wait to...
