January 2018 in Year 2

In Science we have been busy learning about how plants grow. We planted cress seeds and watched how quickly they grew and they grew and then we planted freesia bulbs so we could compare how seeds and bulbs grow.

We have been learning about the life of Beatrix Potter in History and finding out about life in Victorian times. We have really enjoyed listening to some of her stories and learning about her life. Did you know that she started to make up her stories when she wrote letters to her friend’s children?

In English we learnt the nonsense rhyme The Owl and the Pussycat and made up our own actions.

In maths we have been thinking about adding and subtracting numbers using rebalancing and think 10.
