It’s been another busy half term in Year 2. The children have worked really hard and it’s lovely to see them all doing so well. We’ve had some exciting focus days including designing some new playground equipment and finding out about famous women scientists. In our literacy we learnt that Neil Armstrong was the first man to step foot on the moon and all the children produced an information book full of interesting facts. Why not ask your child to tell you one! We’ve also been busy designing and making puppets. The children were amazing at sewing! Our P.E. lessons this half term have involved the children exploring the big apparatus that we have in school. They all made up a routine using jumps and balances and performed these to the class. We have also been fortunate in having two teaching students in Year 2 since January and the children are enjoying their lessons.

I think after all the hard work this half term , we are ready for a week off!

Year 2 have been thinking about keeping safe on the Internet and their digital footprint.

We’ve been very busy in Year 2 (as always!) looking at Traditional Tales and specifically, the 3 Billy Goats Gruff. The the children re-wrote the story in their own words. We have been completing Literacy tasks that are helping build the children’s stamina in writing. They then impressed us in their next large writing task and showed this stamina when writing a story about a fat cat!

Amongst all our cracking writing we have been putting on our acting hats and practising the Nativity! The children have done an amazing job remembering their lines, places, acting and musical parts. They have made us very proud and it has been a great way to end the year. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope you all have a lovely time over the festive period.

Throughout this long term we have been very busy in Year 2!

In Literacy, we have been learning all the Year 2 skills needed including conjunctions, adverbs, adjectives, nouns and noun phrases!  The children have been trying so hard to use their new Literacy skills in their writing and have shown great progress. After that, we moved onto our new Literacy unit, a non-fiction text ‘How to make a Pom Pom’.  The children are most excited about taking their Pom Pom home over the half term to continue making.

We have covered many new methods in Maths for both addition and subtraction.  All children have taken to these really well and show great confidence.

Recently, we had the pleasure of meeting Lady Catherine who travelled to us from over 800 years ago.  She kicked off our amazing History Day, bringing with her some intriguing objects.  The children had a great time investigating them, looking for clues, giving their ideas on what they could be and be used for.  A fantastic hands on day for all the children (and adults!)

Well done Year 2!
