As part of our Literacy work this week we thought about our school uniform. We had to decide if we thought we should wear school uniform or not and give reasons for our choices. In groups we then presented our ideas to the rest of the class and had to try and persuade them to agree with us. What do you think? Should we wear school unform?

On Friday, every school in our Learning Trust for Excellence held a special trust day. Every year was given one of our trust values to focus on. Year 2 were given 'equity'. We found out that equity means being fair. We are all different but everybody should be treated fairly. We enjoyed thinking about the things that we enjoy and are good at. At the end of the day there was a special assembly where we shared what we had found out and heard about the values that other classes had looked at.

Year 2 have had a busy week in Maths this week! We have been using a hundred square to help us find more and less and partitioning numbers into tens and units. We used the Numicon to help make different numbers and find how manyt tens were in the number and how many units. It was great fun!

All the Year 2 children have had a super start to the year! We have been looking at the artist Pablo Picasso as part of Art Week. We have looked at different pieces of his work and tried to create our own. We found out about his life in Spain and enjoyed creating Picasso inspired symmetrical patterns. If you would like to create your own Picasso face at home please [click here].

Year 2 have had a fantastic last week! We have enjoyed lots of special assemblies where we celebrated our achievements. The highlight of the week was making our own Fire Engines as part of our Design Technology work. We thought about how the Fire Engines today are different to those from 1666, used in the Great Fire of London. We used old boxes, turned inside out, and decorated them with ladders and lights. Then we painted them and added lights. The finished engines all look fantastic!
What a fantastic end to the year!
Thank you for all your support over the year and we wish all the children of 2HB and 2MW good luck in Year 3 :-)

Well done to all the children who were awarded their Summer term 100% Attendance certificates this week. Who will achieve their 100% Attendance for the whole year?

This week, in Literacy, we have been looking at the story Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne as part of our transition to Year 3 work. The story shows a day at the park from four different perspectives. Listen to how the voice for each character is different.
We will be continuing to look at the story in September when we are in Year 3.
