Year 2 – Class 5
We are Class 5. We are in Year 2 and our teacher is Miss Taylor. We especially love arts and technology activities as we love making things. We also really enjoy stories and music.
Class 5 have been enjoying improving their tennis skills in their PE lessons. We have learned to hold the racket correctly, serve the ball and rally with a partner.

Year 2 have been learning to use their Maths knowledge to solve problems and explain how they worked out their answers. We have used our reasoning skills in our recent learning on finding fractions of numbers.
Class 5 have been learning about homophones. Today they solved the clues to guess the homophone then made their own snap cards. They also tried to spell the different meanings correctly.
Class 5 enjoyed having some of their parents join us for lunch today. Luckily the rain stopped so we could go outside and play in the yard.

In Literacy we have been using lots of adjectives and expanded noun phrases to describe the characters in the story 'Baboon On The Moon'. In Art we tried different clay modelling skills then created our own 3D baboon models.
Mrs Bell our Science coordinator joined Class 5 for an investigation to find out if the material it was made from changed how well a boat floated. We predicted that paper would sink fastest but actually found out that the shape of the boat was more important. We are...
Year 2 have been enjoying learning to play handball. They have practised different types of pass and how to pass to your team mates and avoid your opponents. It can be tricky to remember that you're not allowed to move with the ball.
