In Year 2 we have been looking at Gender Stereotypes.  The children were given a set of cards and they had to order them into a pile for girls or a pile for boys.  Most of the children followed gender stereotypes.  For example, 'I like the colour blue' was put in the 'boy section'.

 

Children we asked to work in mixed teams to find out what they had in common with the boys/girls in their group.  Children realised they like some of the same things.  The most popular being pizza and football in P.E!

 

The children in Year 2 have also read the story 'There's no difference between us' about a brother and a sister and have created their own version in class comparing a boy and a girl to things they have in common and differences.   

Maths

 

In maths we having been investigating how to move and turn objects.

We have been using different language such as:

Quarter turn, half turn, three quarter turn, clock wise and anti-clockwise.

 

We have been practicing this by turning objects, directing a partner along a track as well as using BeeBots.

Winter Fair

 

For the winter fair Year 2 made Salt Dough decorations.  We made the decorations in groups, then we used a gingerbread man cutter to create the shape for our reindeers and put them in the oven to cook.  Once the decorations had cooked we turned the gingerbread man upside down and decorated them using paint, pens and glitter.
