Welcome to Year 2!

This year will be full of excitement, opportunity and fun! All of our hard work and exciting adventures will be shared with you here, so make sure you keep checking back to hear more about our important news and our class journey through Year 2.

Trip to Cannon Hall Farm - 30.06.22

Year 2 visited Cannon Hall Farm yesterday. We saw lots of different animals, including mammals and reptiles! Then we saw pigs and newborn piglets, cows, goats, donkeys, sheep and alpacas! We had the chance to feed the animals and learnt lots of facts about the different animals who live on the farm. The children especially enjoyed the huge outdoor play areas as well! 

Islam Week - Other Faiths Week

This week we have been learning all about the faith of Islam. We learnt about Mosques and found out that this is the name of the place where Muslims go to worship. We created some beautiful artwork of some famous Mosques from around the world. 

Judaism Week

Year 2 learnt all about the story of Moses parting the Red Sea. We also designed a Kosher meal and ate a Kosher fruit salad outside. We drew beautiful pictures of the story of Moses which we shared with Year 1.  

Making Jam Sandwiches!

Today Year 2 made sandwiches to help us with our instruction writing. We remembered each step carefully so that we could write up our ingredients and method accurately. 

04.03.22 - Class Assembly

Today we performed our class assembly about lent. We talked about the importance of making lenten promises and doing kind things for others, as well as giving up something special to us during lent. Well done Year 2!

03.03.22 - World Book Day

Year 2 loved dressing up as our favourite book characters today! We read some of our favourite stories together. What a super effort on all of our costumes too!

16.02.22 - Year 2 Trip to Temple Newsam

Year 2 really enjoyed our trip to Temple Newsam House, where we enjoyed a workshop all about the Great Fire of London! We learnt about Tudor houses and how they burnt down very quickly, we dressed up as Samuel Pepys and King Charles II, we found out about fire-fighting methods in 1666 and we recreated the sounds and colours of the fire with some music and drama!

Internet Safety Week

Year 2 learnt all about how to stay safe online during Internet Safety Week. We found out lots of helpful ways we can remember to use the internet safely when we are in school or at home.

Year 2 Trip to Lotherton Hall

Yesterday, Year 2 took part in an exciting trip to visit the grounds of Lotherton Hall as part of their Science work on Animals. We learnt lots about how the different species of animals growth and survive in different environments, and we had a fascinating workshop where we discovered the types of bones and teeth different predators and preys have. What a lovely day!

08.10.21 - Making our Marvellous Medicines!

We have been reading George's Marvellous Medicine together as a class. Today Year 2 made their own marvellous Medicines! We mixed up paint, glitter, feathers and pipe cleaner 'worms!' We will use our medicines to help us with our instruction-writing next week.
