We hope that our lovely Year 2 class have a wonderful summer break! A massive thank you to all our parents who have been amazingly supportive this year and a HUGE well done to all our children, who have worked incredibly hard and have grown and blossomed in many ways over the year. They will make an awesome Year 3 and we shall miss teaching them dearly!

Year 2 - the last day of term!

Year 2 - the last day of term! 1

Friday 14th July

After watching clips from David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef, in small groups the children planned and then created their own collages.

Week beginning 10th July

This week the children have designed their own learning in small groups. On Wednesday, we focused on the North and South Pole learning about Robert Scott and Roald Amundsen's race to be the first to reach the South Pole, as well as the different animals which live in these habitats. The children also investigated which material would make the best insulator learning about fair testing and being able to make a prediction and write a conclusion.

Investigating the best insulators!

June 2017

The children worked in small teams to solve some time-based problems and used their reasoning skills to explain how they knew their answers were correct.

They also worked in small groups to estimate distances they could jump, accurately measure and then compare their different results.

Teamwork in maths - ordering times and estimating, measuring and comparing length

Sports Week 19th June - 23rd June

 

Year 2 are currently enjoying a fun-filled week! So far they have taken part in Games Day, competing against other house teams, designed their own house mascot and have taken part in a full day of activities such as netball, circuit training, dance workshop and parachute games. (Photos are in the main PE section).

On Wednesday we had Paralympic Day, where we learnt about the history of the Paralympics, watched clips of David Weir and other paralympians competing at the 2012 Olympics and played Goalball.

Racing David Weir!

After watching a clip of David Weir's 1500m wheelchair race from the 2012 London Olympics, the children challenged themselves to race against him. This prompted a lively discussion about not only his Growth Mindset attitude, but those of other athletes and how we can learn from this with our own attitudes towards challenge.

Bug Hotels

To finish off our Science topic the children worked in small groups to design and build their bug hotels. They demonstrated excellent teamwork skills and were very excited at the arrival of a visiting worm into one!

Outdoor Learning

As the sun was shining, the children worked on their maths skills outside the classroom by creating symmetrical designs using chalk, inventing and challenging their partner to complete shape sequences and drawing round and measuring different parts of their body. Lots of fun was had by all!
