Welcome Back Year 2

User Rating:  / 2

We want to say a huge well done to all of the children for a fantactic start to Year 2 yesterday.  We worked really hard writing pirate theme acrostic poems and designing flags.  Our team games in the afternoon really challenged us to work together and co-operate with each other in order to solve problems.  Our pirate theme is going to continue for the rest of the week linking to our book 'The Night Pirates' by Peter Harris.

Celebration of Dance

What a fabulous performance today! We hope you enjoyed our celebration of dance assembly today for those of you who managed to come and see the show. We are really proud of everyone! All those weeks of rehearsals and practising really paid off. The children all performed confidently and enjoyed themselves.

The Horta Family

User Rating:  / 1

This week we have been continuing our work on Mexico as part of our 'Going Loco!' topic. We found out about the Horta family who live in Tocuaro. The Horta's live in a house originally built by Gustavo's father, Jesus Horta (who is now 79 years old). Jesus and his wife Guadalupe (aged 78) still live there, but the house has been extended to give space for the rest of the family. The family work together to make mexican masks so we had a go at designing our own! Please [click here] to learn more about the Horta family.

The Singing Mermaid

In Literacy this week we have been reading 'The Singing Mermaid'. We enjoyed listening to the story, finding the rhyming words and sorting parts of the story into 'trash' or 'treasure'. We identified the speech in the text and thought about how we could change the ending. [Click here] to listen to the story.

In literacy this week, Year 2 have been looking at speech marks. We listened to the story of Little Red Riding Hood and thought about what the characters would say to each other.

Year 2 have had a fantastic week for Health Week. Children look part in tennis lessons, football and even yoga! They enjoyed designing and making their own healthy fruit salads. We thought about where food comes from and sorted different foods into plant or animal. A fun filled week!

Year 2 have had another busy week! In Literacy, we have been thinking about what we need to do to improve our writing; similes and adjectives, correct punctuation and verbs and adverbs. We used the clocks to help us solve time word problems in Maths.

Night Topic Day

User Rating:  / 2

What a fabulous day Year 2 have had! This morning we had a visit from the ThinkTank Planetarium. We looked at the constellations in the night sky and then went in a Space Ship to travel up to our Solar System. We looked at each of the different planets and found out what they are like. Apparently Earth is sometimes called the 'Goldilocks' planet because it is just right!. If it was any closer to the sun, it would be too hot and if it was any further away from the sun, it would be too cold. It is also the only planet to have liquid water.

This afternoon we also had a visit from the 'Animal Man'. He showed us lots of different nocturnal animals. It was a great day!
