In Maths this week, Year 2 have been problem solving. We went outside to estimate how many leaves were in a circle (hoop) and then try and accurately count them.

This week the children thought about how important it is to be different when we all wore our odd socks to school for Odd Socks Day. As you can see everyone had different socks on and we all enjoyed singing along to Andy and his Odd Socks too!

In D.T/Science, we investigated and made different shaped foil boats. We then tested which ones stayed afloat and did not allow any water in.

This week in PSHE, in groups, the children took part in freeze frames to express how people might feel if someone was being unkind to them.  As you can see, we have some budding actors in the class!
