Summer 1 – Week 3

Stars of the Week: Hudson and Daniela

This half term we are learning about living things in their habitat. We went to Redcross Gardens to see what minibeasts we could find. Our bug hunt was a success and we found spiders, ants, tadpoles, flies, bees, caterpillars, snails and lots more!

Last week, we had a very exciting visit from the CLC where we made our own animation movies. We hope you have as much fun watching them as we did making them!

Summer 1 – Week 2

Stars of the Week: Astrid and Ethan

This week, we were very lucky to have received a visit from the CLC.

Caitlin and Afeefa came to Year 2 and taught us all about animation. They told us that some animation films can take up to 3 years to make! In partners, we created and voiced our own short animation films. We are looking forward to our film premier next week where we will have a chance to watch them! Well done Year 2 – Caitlin and Afeefa were so impressed with your behaviour and with your enthusiasm.

Thank you so much to Caitlin and Afeefa for such a wonderful learning opportunity and thank you Mr Crowley for organising this for our class.

Next week we will be continuing to learn about Buddhism in RE.

Spring 2 – Week 6

Stars of the Week: Scarlett and Aarav

What a fantastic half term Year 2 have had! I am so proud of all of the great learning that you have done. This week, Year 2 wrote their own version of Knight and Dragon stories. I was so impressed by the creativity that Year 2 have shown in their stories. Scarlett remembered to use capital letters for proper nouns and included lots of ambitious adjectives and Aarav really tried his best with his handwriting and spelling. Well done Superstars!

Have a lovely and relaxing Easter holiday – I am already looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Spring 2 – Week 5

Stars of the Week: Mason and Osarenoma

This week Year 2 have been learning about the Massai tribe. We learnt about the ‘Jumping Dance’ and tried to have a go ourselves. It’s an impressive dance, not only for its energy but also for its deceptively simple appearance. Watch the Maasai do it; they make it look so easy. When it’s your turn, you realize it’s much harder than it looks! Have a look at our photos to see how we got on!

 

Spring 2 – Week 4

Stars of the Week: Cam’ron and Tabitha

On Tuesday, Year 2 had so much fun on the gymnastic equipment in the hall. Thank you to Year 6 and Brenda for setting this up for us – we really appreciated it. We explored different ways to climb, and tried to think of creative ways to jump and hold balances. Have a look at these photos to see how we got on!

Next week we will be continuing to learn about fractions: half, quarter and thirds!

Spring 2 – Week 3

Stars of the Week: All of Class 2!

I am so proud of every single member of Class 2 this week. You have all settled back into your learning so well and remembered all of the rules that we follow in the class to keep each other safe. You are super-duper Superstars! Also, a great big Cathedral welcome to Lacey – our newest member of Year 2! Thank you to everyone in Year 2 for making Lacey feel so welcome, and well done to Lacey for your kind nature towards other children in the class.

Cruz was our star photographer this week and managed to take some great action shots during our PE lesson this week on basketball! Thank you Cruz!

On Thursday we learnt all about how easy it is to spread germs. We used green paint to represent the germs – one person started off with ‘germ’ hands and before long the whole class had ‘germs’ on their hands! After this, we washed our hands thoroughly until the ‘germs’ disappeared!

  

Next week we are going to learn all about Fractions in our Maths lesson.

 

Autumn 2 – Week 7 Merry Christmas

In Year 2 this week, we finished our playgrounds. I am really impressed with the results – well done Year 2 for all of your hard work on these. They look extremely creative!

Also, a massive WELL DONE to our Christmas card competition winners: Rosa, Javon and Ava! They were superb designs and we are all really proud of you.

Wednesday was a particularly exciting day as we wore our Christmas jumpers to school, had Christmas dinner and had our Christmas party!

 

 

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas Year 2 and I can’t wait to see you all again in January. Well done again for all of your hard work this half term.

 

 

 

Autumn 2 – Week 6

Stars of the Week: Cruz and Eyoel

Year 2 really enjoyed drawing and designing Christmas cards to send to the retirement home. I was really proud of the effort and care that everyone put into their drawings – fantastic job Year 2!

Also this week Year 2 carried on practising their balances and different ways of travelling across the equipment.

Next week we will be finishing off our playgrounds in DT – we can’t wait to show them to you!
