Hello, my name is Miss Mullett and I am the very proud teacher of Wallabies. Here in Year 2, we explore some very interesting topics. These are:
On this page, you will find pictures and examples of the amazing work we do at HHPS.
We will add more throughout the year so keep looking back to see what we have been up to!
Mini Topic Autumn (All About Wallabies)
This week we have been working towards writing a fact file all about our class animal - the wallaby!
First, we explored non-fiction texts to see if we could spot any of the features. We looked for titles, pictures, facts, sub-headings and information in sections. We learned all about the difference between a fiction and non-fiction text.
Then, we worked in teams to find facts about wallabies that Miss Mullett had hidden around the room! We had to decide whether our fact would go in the section about what wallabies eat, where wallabies live or what wallabies look like. Miss Mullett saw some fantastic teamwork.
Finally, we wrote our wallaby fact file using everything we had learned this week. We made sure to include our 'Year 2 Writing non-negotiables'. Miss Mullett was so impressed with our hard work and dedication to writing a fantastic piece of work.
Autumn - Journeys
We have been learning all about George Stephenson and the Stockton to Darlington Railway. We first found out about him and his life and then we thought about the opening day. We talked about how only certain people were allowed on the train on the opening day. Did you know only 18 people were on board on that very famous journey?
We loved our hot seating activity where one of us role - played as either George Stephenson, an invited passenger or a member of the community that would not afford a ticket.
We asked questions like:
In Science, we are learning all about 'Materials'. We have been set the challenge of finding a suitable material to make an umbrella out of for our teddy. First, we needed to explore the materials before we could make a prediction to our question. We were especially interested in the glass because we knew it was waterproof but knew it would break if we dropped it on a windy day! So we had to look for other properties other than just waterproof.
