Celebrating Our Success

In Year 2, we love it when we can share successes and achievements.  Let's see who can be Year 2's first star of the week and Star Award winner.

Maths - This half term the Year 2 children have been focusing on place value. We have been using concrete resources to help us partition numbers into ten and ones.
English - The children are currently looking at 'Rapunzel' linking to our Cornerstones topic. The children have enjoyed thinking about different, inventive ways she can escape from the tower and writing back to her to give her advice.
Cornerstones - This Half Term our topic is 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets'. The children have been learning about castles and why they were built. They have created some fantastic pieces of home learning and some amazing pencil sketches of a knights helmet in Art.

 Inspire Workshop (12.2.2019 @ 9AM) 2Y

Athlete Visit

On Friday 8th February, we had the British long jump athlete, Faron Sayers, come to visit. The children took part in a fitness circuit and the spoke about the importance of exercise and maintaining a healthy life. We all had a fantastic day winning points for our house.

 

Nurse Visit

On Wednesday 13th February, we had a visit from two nurses. The children got to ask lots of questions about being a nurse and what it involves. They even brought in some old and new equipment for us to look at and compare. The children all loved Miss Jones dressing up as a midwife from the 1940's. The children experienced how to bandage wounds and had a go at using a stethoscope. What a great end to our topic!

 

Inspire

On behalf of all of Year 2, we would like to say a big thank you for attending our inspire workshops. We are looking forward to reading all of your recounts and seeing all the progress you make with the help from your grown ups at home.
