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!
