The Great Fire of London

Year 2 enjoyed a drama re-enactment of the Great Fire of London. Transported back in time, to Sunday 2nd September 1666 and to London, they had the challenge of putting out the fire. However, by the time they had got water from the River Thames the fire had spread! They had great fun learning why the fire started and how hard it was to stop it spreading.  They also considered the problems that people faced at the time.

Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page!

Year 2 have made a wonderful start to the year and look forward to sharing their learning adventures with you here.

 

Mrs Thomas and Mrs Williams

Blackpool Zoo

Year 2 had a wonderful day learning about animals and their habitats at Blackpool Zoo. There have been so many awe and wonder moments today. Such smiling faces and squeals of delight!!! It has been a privilege to witness the happiness today and to finally take them out on a class trip.




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.
