It's the Summer Term!

Our Topic: Can we explore the bright lights of the big city?

This topic will be a great opportunity to explore cities around our country and the world, involving lots of map work. We will be creating our own artwork surrounding the theme of landscapes and cityscapes. 

take a look at our curriculum overview for summer 2!

Brilliant batik!

We have been very lucky to work with Manu and Edi on our whole school Batik art project. We had a fantastic time!

Out of this world!

Today, we had a great experience using virtual reality goggles! We journeyed to outer space and explored lots of different planets!

A fantastic start to expressive arts week!

We have had a great start to Expressive Arts week! We were introduced to Manu and Edi who are going to do some fantastic art work with us, watched a fabulous puppet show and made our very own stained glass window designs.

Marvellous Maths!

We have been doing lots of practical Maths lately! We have been investigating mass by using weighing scales, making amounts of money using different combinations of coins and investigating patterns.

a special visitor...

Year 2 had the opportunity to meet a very special visitor....a little lamb! We all had the chance to stroke it and ask some questions about it.

Growing Cress!

This week in Year 2, we have been planting our own cress seeds. We will be keeping a very close eye on them over the coming days and weeks and observing what happens. We will also be bringing our cress home at the end of term!

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!
