This week we have been learning all about the weather. Here are some of our weather mobiles we created.

Fab Friday - Building dens for a place to relax, chill and enjoy!

Storytelling Week - We have been brilliant story tellers this week. Take a look some of the things we got up to in the pictures below. Can you guess our stories?

Children's Mental Health Week 2021 - This week we have been thinking about our feelings. We completed lots of activities to help us learn that it is ok to feel different ways and what to do when we feel these ways. We encouraged each other to talk about our feelings and to remember to always be kind. We made sure we had lots of time to do things that made us feel happy too!

So, here we go again...Lockdown!

 

To take some of the pressure of you, we will be providing daily online live lessons for all children through google classroom. Please use the log in and password we sent out last term to log on. We can send these out again if you need it. 

We may be able to loan you a chrome book (mini laptop) if you need it so please let us know if this is something you would be interested in.

 

Finally, please just do what you can at home, your families wellbeing is the most important thing. 

If there is anything more that we can do to help please do not hesitate to contact us. You can email the Year 2 team directly at year2@flpa-tkat.org or the wellbeing team at wellbeing@flpa-tkat.org 

 

Remember, you've done this once already, you can do it again! 

 

 

 

Our 2020 VIP's - Very Important People!

We are 'reading at home' superstars! We have all completed 5 FLPA loyalty cards and so was able to visit the book vending machine. We collected a golden coin from Mrs Couldwell and then selected a book to take home and keep!

Gold Band Treat - Today we had a whole afternoon golden time, a selection box and a McDonalds lunch! Out teachers said we truly deserved it!

Our Virtual Christmas Show was lots of fun! Beech Class were the super groovy shepherds 'The Crooks' and Oak Class were the very cool 'Wise Men'. We couldn't have our grown ups in school to watch this year so instead we filmed it. It was a very different type of experience but we were all still amazing! We learnt all our words amazingly and were fabulous singers! You can find it on the Christmas part of the school website.

Christmas Fun!

We love reading all together! Here we are reading 'Lubna and Pebble'. It is a great story all about friendship!

Today we made Coconut Barfi, a traditional sweet eaten during Diwali. It was very sticky but yummy!

We have been using the Beebots in our Maths, RE and ICT lessons.

Children in Need Day 13.11.20

Project 2 Final Outcome - Diversity Welcome Tree

Year 2 Positive Power Heroes! This year, we can earn superhero capes if we show our teachers our Positive Powers in class!

Remembrance Day 11.11.2020

Project 2 - Black History Month 2020

Year 2 received a mysterious delivery... this box! It contained a tool, some water and biscuits... plus an interesting new book; 'Henry's Freedom Box'.

After close investigation and excellent prediction making, we finally discovered its owner... Henry 'Box' Brown.

We created this Story Map to help us memorise his adventurous story of his journey from Slavery in Virginia, to Freedom in Philadelphia.

 

 

Project 2 - Black History & Equality

Year 2 will be thinking about their new Essential Question:

 

"What does a successful person look like?"

 

We will be studying the lives of Henry 'Box' Brown and Emmanuel Ofosu - two very successful men, who have faced many challenges in their lives but have used their positivity and determination to overcome them and succeed at their goals. We will be studying these 2 beautiful stories:

                     

 

 

Halloween Activity Day! 22.10.20

Project 1 Final Outcome - Taking home our 'Bags of Thanks'

Project 1 - Recording Year 2's Song - We're All In This Together!

Listen to Year 2's rendition of 'We're all in this together' - a song which we felt was very appropriate during the challenging times we were facing during lockdown. It sounded great as part of our school CDs, which were a key part of our 'bags of thanks'.

Art Project - Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944)

Our Class Story:

Lubna and Pebble                       

Year 2 cannot wait to bring this book home to read with you! We have been studying Lubna's heart-warming tale of her best friend, Pebble, who keeps her safe and comforted as she experiences living away from home. When she meets little Amir and makes a new friend, she realises that Pebble could help him too...

We cannot wait to start sharing this term's Learning Journey with you. 

For our first project, we will be thinking all about 'Rainbows' and giving thanks to all the everyday heroes during the pandemic.

Start thinking about our Essential Question: "Why do we say thank you?"

 

YEAR 2 - CLASS OF 2019 - 2020

 

Year 2 home learning ideas

A big hello to all of our parents and children in year 2 during this strange time. We want to help as much as we can so on this blog you will find some home learning tasks that your child will likely be familiar with and can complete independently throughout the week as well as weekly planned activities that your child can complete with some support. These activities are here as a guide only, you can pick and choose what you do and include your own ideas and activities. You know what is best for your family in these unusual times and it is important that everyone is happy and safe. We will pick up where we left off once school returns to normality so please do not put too much pressure on yourselves. 

 

If you have any questions, comments or ideas then please email us at homework@flpa-tkat.org with Year 2 in the subject box and we will reply as soon as possible. 

We are missing the children and school very much so would also love for you to send us any photographs or videos of the things the children are getting up to at home. 

Thank you for your understanding and support at this time, take care and stay safe. 

Mrs Davis, Miss Ashman and the rest of the Year 2 team.
