We had a whale workshop where a lady from the Whale trust came in and taught us all about whales, dolphins and various other animals that live in the ocean that need protecting. It was great fun! She even brought in whale and dolphin skulls!

A quick reminder...

 

 

With SATS being at the end of the year and our children working so hard in school, we will not be setting any homework at the moment.

 

We would love for you to read with your child each night, practice any spelling words from the year 1/2 spellings list (we can provide this if you need it) and practice times tables. (2s, 3s, 5s and 10s) 

 

Thank you for your constant and on-going support! 

 

 

Our story this term is the Twits! Before the half term our story was all about literacy heroes and now we have moved on to villains!

Lots and lots has been going on since we have been back in year 2.

 

We had a whale workshop where the children got to see real life whale skulls and dolphin skulls.

 

We went to the cinema and saw Hotel Transylvania 3! 

 

Samuel Peyps diary arrived and we had to learn the story for him.

 

We have had parents in seeing our fantastic story telling and reading. 

 

The Front Lawn fireworks were brilliant. 

 

Pictures to follow....

Great Fire of London hook

Still image for this video
This term we are learning about Heroes and Villains. Our essential question is:

What does a hero look like?

As part of this topic we have been investigating what happened during The Great Fire of London and experimented with this for our literacy hook into our story 'London is burning.'

Hello and welcome back to Year 2!

 

We have already been working hard in our first week making art, writing short pieces of writing and beginning to learn some Spanish. Stay tuned for our hook to our literacy...

 

Adios!

This term our topic is FREEDOM! We will be looking at the freedom of animals in zoos. Should animals be behind bars?

World Book Day!

As part of our authentic outcome for this term the children decided that the thing the playground needs is more plants, trees, flowers! So we started planting today. Stay tuned to see more of the things we plant including a willow structure and a secret garden!

Here is our latest text: The Great Gran Plan! Could your child story map this story at home? ask them and see if they could! If not, could they perform it to you!?

Well done to all the children who raised so much money in the welly walk! We really appreciate your continued support. The children loved it and did over 20 laps around the field!

Chinese New Year dance class!

Hermelin needed a car made because he is always late to work AND needs a speedy way to get there. The children learnt about how to make a car, wrote instructions then MADE ONE!

The Zoolab company came in and brought with them many different critters and mini beasts including snakes, cockroaches and turtles for our children to see! They learnt about the anatomy of these creatures and some of their behaviors. The children loved it!

Wondering how to support your child at home?

 

Get them to write out their times tables!

 

Write some words on a piece of paper and get them to practice writing them without looking!

 

Reading at home every day would be a great support to them and us!

 

Download some fun learning game apps!

What a fabulous first few days back!

 

The children in Year Two were really surprised on Monday to find that Winnie the Witch had crashed in their classroom leaving her suitcase, broomstick, cauldron and some stories behind.  We looked for Winnie everywhere to see if she was ok but we couldn't find her anywhere (hopefully we will find her later in the term).  We really enjoyed reading the stories she left about her adventures and we began to learn the one where she turns her cat Wilbur all the colours of the rainbow!  Look out for some photos of our own Winnie the Witch stories which we will be writing over the next few weeks. We have also been enjoying learning about the history of Halloween and Bonfire Night and the reasons we celebrate them.  Ask your child for a fun fact about these special occasions to see which ones they remember!
