2T’s Toy Museum

This term our topic has been ‘Toys’. We have spent lots of time discussing and looking at old and new toys. Recently the children in 2T have worked really hard in English and DT in order to create a Jumping Jack, Spinner and and a non-fiction instruction book to go with the Jumping Jack.

This morning we set up the classroom like a toy museum. We carefully placed our items out on the tables and then enjoyed looking at each others books and toys. It gave us the opportunity to find out what each other had made and look at each others toys.

Home Learning 12.11.20-**Important Message**

Hello Year Two,

This week will be the last week that we post your home learning on the blog. From next week we will putting your home learning onto Microsoft Teams.

If you have not yet downloaded Teams onto a computer at home or are having difficulty then please speak to Mr Morris, our assistant headteacher.

When you open up teams and go into your class group, there will be a channel on the left hand side that says ‘home learning’. This is where you will find your homework.

Don’t forget we give you new maths homework on My Maths every week for you to try at home and you can always log in to Bug Club to practise your reading.

Back to this week.

We have been learning about adjectives and similes. Look at the powerpoint to remind yourself what a simile is and then have a go at completing the worksheet. If you can’t print out the worksheet then you could try writing some of your own down.

Remember to bring your home learning in to show us at school.

Horniman Museum 2T

This morning Year Two enjoyed a visit from some staff that work in the Horniman Museum. They brought along with them lots of different types of toys for the children to look at and play with.

The children have been learning about toys this term and this workshop enhanced the children’s learning even more. We looked at different toys from around the world, we discussed the materials they had been made from and how the toys are played with.

We had lots of fun!

Hello Year Two,

We hope you enjoyed the visit from the Horniman Museum today. We really enjoyed looking at the toys and finding out about different toys from around the world.

Your home learning today is to write and ask some questions to someone in your family about the toys they used to play with when they were little. It could be a parent or a grandparent. Don’t forget to put a question mark at the end of the questions.

Remind yourself all about questions here.


Don’t forget to log into MtMaths and complete the maths homework for this week.

Year 2 Home Learning – 8.10.20

This week, we have continued reading the story, ‘The Gruffalo’. Soon, we will be writing our own versions of the story with our new character(s). To help us remember our new versions of the story, we drew a story map with our new character(s) included.

Use your story map to help you retell your version of ‘The Gruffalo’ to someone at home. Don’t forget to use your actions too!

Also, remember to visit My Maths for this week’s maths activity.
