Welcome to Year 2
Spring 2 Term WOW
We had such a great start to this half term. The children started their 'Could you be a Monarch?' by dressing up as royalty and being crowned! We enjoyed a ceremony where we pledge our oath, was crowned and then sat down to afternoon tea to celebrate with our friends.
Thank you so much to the Parents who joined us for our maths games afternoon. The children loved having you in school for the afternoon. We all enjoyed combining Pancake Day with our fraction work, and making our own fruit kebab stall, where we could buy and sell the kebabs using real money and giving out change.
Spring 1 Term WOW
It was great to involve our grandparents in our topic 'Are my toys more fun than my grandparents were? We were so excited when they brought photos or real toys from their childhood. We had such fun building our own toy museum and designing posters and leaflets to advertise it.
Year 2 – Autumn term 1
We kicked off our half term with our Africa WOW day. We tasted Akara (which not all the children liked!), made some hand dyed material,
looked at African patterns, found Africa on a map and thought about what kind of animals and climate they had in Africa.
Since then we have looked at ‘Meerkat Mail’ and ‘Lila and the secret of rain’ in literacy and enjoyed writing postcards and retelling stories orally,
through story maps and in our own words.
We have settled in really well and our teacher is proud of our hard work already!
