Year 2

                Wonderdome Planetarium Visit 

It was out of this world in Year 2 today. We had a visit from Wonderdome Planetarium and learned all about the Solar System. We watched astronauts living in the space station, learned all about the moon landing and wondered at the galaxies and planets. The children are going to use the visit to write an exciting recount in their literacy lessons. 

World Book Day 2022

The children had a wonderful World Book Day. They all brought in their favourite books and dressed as characters from fiction. They looked brilliant!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from the illustrator, Penny Neville-Lee.

The children looked at some of her beautiful illustrations and she read an extract from the story her pictures feature in - The Night Train by Matilda Woods.

Then the children had a masterclass in drawing with Penny, recreating the adorable yeti from the story.

In the afternoon, Year 2 visited the juniors and had stories read to them. It was all very exciting. 

Dare to be Different Day

The children were surprising good at breaking the rules on 'Dare to be Different Day' also known as 'Break the Rules Day'. They dressed in their own unique style, brought chocolate for snack time and all kinds of other mayhem!

Design Technology-Clay

This week, the children learnt lots of different techniques using clay, such as rolling out evenly, joining pieces using a slick and decorating using different tools. We created all kinds of Valentines gifts for our loved ones, and then painted them with special acrylic paints.

Safety Seymour

Year 2 had a visit from superhero Safety Seymour. They had a great time and learned all about how to detect carbon monoxide and what to do if they suspect there is a leak. They acted out scenarios and mimed being appliances and cleaning chimneys. The morning finished with a conga (obviously).

 

     ​​​​​​​

Lunar New Year

The children in Year 2 celebrated the Lunar New Year by making dancing dragons using paper craft. We learned about the animals in the chinese zodiac. One of the children in class gave gifts of red and gold envelopes containing sweets. These symbolise good luck and prosperity for the year ahead. 

Christmas

The children took part in lots of fun activities over the Christmas period. We performed Christmas songs on Seesaw, watched a pantomime, had a great part day and we even had a visit from Santa!

Forest School

We've been very lucky to have Mr Outhwaite taking Year 2 for Forest School this term. To mark the end of our outdoor Science lessons, we had toasted marshmallows and sweets around the camp fire!

Author Visit

We were very lucky to have a visit from children's author and illustrator Sarah Parkinson. We heard her read her Christmas book 'Monty McFlew' and then Sarah showed us how to draw Monty! The children really enjoyed meeting a proper illustrator and we had some great examples of Monty by the end!

Snow Day

The children brought in wellies and warm clothes for messing about in the snow. It didn't stay long so it was lucky we were prepared!

 

      

 

 

Forest School

We have spent our Autumn term science lessons in our Forest School area. We have studied life processes and living things as well as habitats and microhabitats. We also completed a seed investigation looking at a variety of seeds both in the classroom and in Forest School. 

Spooky Day

Spooky Day at the end of the first half term was awesome! The children looked very scary (cute scary) and really enjoyed our party games. They have worked hard and deserved a treat. 

YEAR 2 AUTUMN 2021

We have had a great start to the new school year and the children have settled in really quickly. 

Roald Dahl

We have been looking at the characters created by the marvellous Roald Dahl and the children are very excited listening to all his silly stories. 

We have created some stunning art work and some revolting recipes too.

Football

We have a football coach this half term teaching the children the basic skills needed to play the game. We hope this will encourage all children (boys and girls alike) to continue to enjoy football throughout the year.

Well, we’ve come to the end of the strangest of years and we’ve survived.

In recent weeks we have been singing as a year group and we wanted to show you how talented we are.

We have put together some clips of different songs and also the traditional end of year powerpoint which is always a tearjerker.      (This will go on later today or tomorrow)

We have also put some clips of the ocarina concert that Mrs Hanley’s class took part in last week with our wonderful ocarina teacher,        Mrs Peacock.

Thank you for all your support this year we couldn’t have got through it without you !

Have a wonderful summer .

SINGING IN THE SUNSHINE

Birthday Party Day!

As all of our children have missed a birthday party with their school friends over the last year, we celebrated in style at the end of term. We had an egg hunt, a visit from the Easter Bunny, games and even a birthday cake!

Spring Lockdown Learning

 

We have been so impressed with all of our children, both in school and at home. They have worked so hard and produced outstanding work! Here's just a selection: 

We've found out about human and physical features in Geography, and even made canal barges!

We have written amazing pieces of work! We have used different texts to inspire us to write outstanding letters, descriptions and recounts.

We have designed and, in some cases, made healthy meals!

We learnt about the life cycle of a frog at school, and at home!

We made rakhi bracelets and gave them to brothers, sisters and loved ones:

Santa Dash for Save The Children

SPOOKY DAY

 

This term, we've been looking at the stories of Roald Dahl and using his stories to inspire our creative writing!

We studied the techniques of Quentin Blake's famous illustrations and had a go at some of our own:

 

This term we have also been looking at a range of different texts linked with mental health and with finding our place in a confusing time, including Oliver Jeffers' Here We Are. We have recreated one of the pages from that book which encourages tolerance and celebrates diversity within our community.
Our little artists have also looked at the work of Jean Michel Basquait, who the children found fascinating. They were interested in how unique his work is and interested in the way he repeated images important to him and his culture in many of his paintings, such as crowns and skulls.

World Book Day 2020!

The children have been treated to 2 amazing visitors this week as part of our World Book Day celebrations! First, we were lucky enough to be taught some new skills by illustrator Penny Neville Lee, who came and taught us how to draw some of her amazing characters, and also how to draw different emotions.

We had a brilliant time dressing up as our favourite book character! Also, we were visited by author Sarah Parkinson, who came to talk to us about her book 'Dragonfly Pie'. After hearing the story, we were given the chance to ask her what being a real-life author was like, and to write our own version of her story in our own books!

                                                        OUT OF THIS WORLD! 

Today Year 2 had a special visit from a mobile planetarium. We crawled inside and learned lots of interesting facts about our solar system. It was AMAZING!

SPRING TERM

This term, we've been taken all our Science outside! Our Forest School teacher, Sarah, has introduced us to different habitats. The children have learnt lots about various insects, and what a habitat needs. We even made our own wormery and looked after them for a week!

 

 

Anti Bullying Week November 2019

 

 

The children in Year 2 took part in a Philosophy lesson where we discussed the question 'Should we be friends with everyone?' The children also took part in a role playing exercise where bullying was discussed and acted out. The children finally then used what they'd learnt to make some Anti Bullying posters to put up around the school. Mrs Hanley's class made a Powerpoint presentation linked to this year's antibullying theme "Change starts with us" too.

 

 

 The children looked scary but cute on Spooooooky day 2019! We played games in the hall and the classroom and had our marble treat too!
