It's the Spring Term!

Our Topic: Why do animals have paws, claws and whiskers?

This topic will be a great opportunity to explore a range of animals and their habitats. We will be reading stories including 'The Tiger who came to tea'. We will be using our topic as a stimulus for our design and technology and art work.

Year 2's Spring term topic web

We love the gruffalo!

Our focus text for this week has been 'The Gruffalo'. We have been making new homes for the animals made out of sticks and lego, retold the story using puppets and made masks.

A Mega-Workout!

We had a great time completing our sponsored 'Mega-Workout' in aid of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and St Peter's School fund. We took part in lots of fun activities!

we love computing!

In Year 2, we have been exploring Scratch Jr, which is an app on our Learnpads. It allows us to programme an on screen animal to move around. So far, we have started to create the background to our screen before we programme our animal to move. 

Bedtime story and pyjama day!

Year 2 had a fantastic day coming to school in our pyjamas. We did lots of different activities. We designed our own pyjamas and dream jars, drank hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and even visited another class for a bedtime story!

Wonderful artwork!

We have been very busy getting ready for our Nativity and helped to create the scenery with Manu and Edi. They are batik artists and created the backdrop of Bethlehem but they needed our help to finish it! We can't wait for you to see it!

We're Mad About Minibeasts!

We have had great fun with our minibeast topic this week. We have been exploring microhabitats and some of us have been to the pond to see what we would find! We have also used modelling clay to make our own minibeasts.

We love our friends!

This week, we are thinking about what is good about our friends in Year 2! This links very nicely with our topic, 'How Much Do You Love Me?'. We have loved writing what we like about our friends on to sticky notes and putting them on our display board to make everyone smile!

Our First week!

The children have made a fantastic start to Year 2, full of enthusiasm and excitement!
