Saturn – Year 2

Summer 2020

Whilst school has been closed, the children in Year 2 have been working hard and keeping their brains active, producing some excellent work around our topic: Australia Here We come.

In Geography, Saturn have started learning about the location of Australia and its geography in the world. They have been identifying its landmarks and features using maps and globes. Here are some fantastic, detailed maps of the continents of the world, and Australia created by the children.

Our Art topic on Australian art is proving popular. The children particularly enjoyed using earth colours inspired from the Australian landscape to create some colourful paper weavings. Look at their beautiful designs.

The children are enthusiastic about their new science topic, learning about animals and their habitats. They will be learning how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants. At home, the children have been busy finding and identifying things that are living, dead and have never been alive.

The children have clearly been using their time to brush up on their computing skills, creating some incredible paintings based on some work by famous artists. Can you name the artists? Can you identify the tools they have used?

In Maths, the children have been learning to recognise, name and write fractions of a length, shape or amount.

The children have produced some work to be proud of and we are really impressed with their explanations to prove their ideas.

Whilst, at home, the children have found some fun ways of keeping fit. These include playing tennis, going for bike rides, building bug houses and daily P.E. with Joe Wicks.
