  • October update for Year 2

    date posted: 21/10/21

    What a busy and fun half term it has been!  

    In maths the children have been working hard to consolidate their place value knowledge.  They have used this knowledge to add and subtract and have been showing their thinking in different ways!

    We have had the opportunity to write for a range of purposes this half term. After reading  the story The Rainbow Fish, we wrote our own story for our Year 1 teacher about a Rainbow animal, we wrote instructions for Bird Pudding for Mrs Docwra who has many birds arriving in her garden and we wrote a poem! Our sentence construction is improving and our handwriting is getting neater! 

    Following our trip to the Wetland Centre we designed our own Bug Hotels using materials that would attract minibeasts.  We had a fun morning of sawing and hammering and worked together to create our Bug Hotels.  We evaluated our work and many children thought that to make them even better we should have plants therefore we will be planting bulbs around our Bug Hotels to attract bees and butterflies! 

    In art we have been developing our skill of colour mixing.  We have mixed primary colours to make secondary colours and used this to create habitat silhouette paintings.  We also explored how colour changes when adding white and black and used this to help us create pictures in the style of Alma Thomas.

    We have been learning about using the internet safely and we know what to do if we see something that we don't like. We used our ‘Staying Safe Online’ agreement to help us. We have been practising logging on and off the computer and using j2e to make a presentation.

    Mrs Williamson, our fantastic music teacher has helped each class to create a composition about sounds that we hear in the home.  Children in the class had great fun conducting their class and this was shared with parents on Tapestry.

    Thank you to all the parents for their continued support.  We hope everyone has a relaxing holiday!

  • Our trip to London Wetlands!

    date posted: 11/10/21

    Our Year 2 children had a lovely day yesterday at the London Wetland Centre. They spotted lots of different species of bird as well as other wildlife to complement the learning they have been doing in class this half term. The children and staff had a great time and we were so proud to hear that the organisers at the centre had commented on what a delight our children were and that we were one of the best school groups they have had visiting the centre. Well done Year 2!

  • First few weeks in Year 2

    date posted: 25/09/21

    Welcome to Year 2! We are delighted to welcome the children back into school and pleased that they are settling in and enjoying their new classrooms.  They are all looking smart in their school uniforms.  We are looking forward to an exciting year! Our topic this half term is: Happy Homes We will find out which animals and plants are found in different habitats and why.  We will think about how we can look after nature in our local area by building a bug hotel for our school grounds and by making bird pudding for the birds as it gets harder for them to find food. We are feeling very excited about our trip to The Wetland Centre to learn about minibeasts.
