Chicks

Year 2 have waited patiently for 3 weeks to see if the 7 eggs that we put in an incubator would hatch. 6 new lives have joined our world and have been named. We have all enjoyed cuddling and caring for them and are sad to see them go to their new home. It inspired us to write great information and instructional texts linked to this science topic.

Circle Time

Year 2 had a reflective session with Father Paul today. We all enjoyed a peaceful and spiritual Circle Time.

Music

Year 2 have enjoyed using vocal sounds, body parts and musical instruments to accompany music inspired by British myths and Legends.

Seaside Jigsaws

We were given one piece of jigsaw each to inspect. We had to be like ‘Dr Resilience’ and notice the smaller details. This caused lots of puzzlement and questions in our minds like ‘What is that?’ ‘Where could it be?’ ‘Has someone else got a piece from my jigsaw and how can I tell?’ We then worked with a partner to look at what clues we could see in fragmented pictures/ parts of photographs. We carefully looked for clues to see what we could notice and thought about what sort of place it could be and gave reasons how we knew. We discussed what we know about the seaside and our experiences of these localities. We shared our picture with another pair and compared similarities and differences. We then used the pieces to complete the seaside jigsaws.

Travelling Science Show

Year 2 had an amazing travelling science show visit where they looked at ways to change materials to produce unexpected effects, explored and tested the properties of materials in unusual and astounding ways  and enjoyed taking part in interactive experiments to answer questions such as ‘How many people can fit through a sheet of paper?’  ‘Why is it not a good idea to bring your packed lunch to school in a paper bag?’ and ‘Can we make a piece of tissue so strong that no one can rip it?’ It was awesome!

The Disgusting Sandwich

Year 2 had such fun following instructions to make their very own disgusting sandwiches like in the story that we had read. They were amazing chefs and thought of lots of verbs to collect and synonyms vocabulary for ‘disgusting’. We are looking forward to writing our own disgusting soup recipes.

The Great Fire of London

Mrs Hardman challenged us to put the fire out in Pudding Lane, but by the time we had got water from the River Thames the fire had spread! We had great fun learning why the fire of London started and how hard it was to stop it spreading.

Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong

Year 2 enjoyed taking part in a workshop today. They explored the lives, times and achievements of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. They learnt about the similarities between these 2 significant people by recreating the events of their journeys. They enjoyed audiobooks, videos, quizzes and drama activities.

 

 

Year 2 Class Assembly

A huge well done to all of the pupils in Year 2 for their hard work and ideas to lead worship this morning.
They thought about all the people and key workers that help us in our daily lives. They also thought about how we can help and support each other.

Year 2 are also raising money this morning for Macmillan  Nurses. They are offereing juice and a biscuit to each pupil in school to take part in The World’s Largest Coffee Morning to support the work of this very worthwhile charity.
Well done Year 2 we are very proud of you!

Welcome to Year 2.

Welcome to Year 2.
