Year 2 Dragon Eyes, by Miss Jones

Date: 28th Mar 2022 @ 4:59pm

Year 2 have worked so hard with researching, designing and making their own dragon eyes using clay. We can't wait for them to dry out so that they can come home. 

Great work Year 2!

Y2 Forest School, by Miss Anders

Date: 18th Mar 2022 @ 3:45pm

Today Year 2 enjoyed a day of Forest school with Mr Hadfield. Luckily, the sun was shining! 

We started by looking at a range of interesting objects that Mr Hadfield had brought to show us including herbivore and carnivore skulls and different birds' nests. We listened to see if we could identify some of the birdsong in our school grounds and watched a magpie flying to and from its nest at the top of one of the trees in our school grounds.

Next we worked together to make a  'boy size' shelter using natural materials and in small groups we made 'homes' for a range of superheroes and toy figures. There were even tennis courts and hot tubs included!

Using a dragons sneeze we burned materials such as teabags and cotton wool but one of our favourite activities was toasting marshmallows by the fire pit - delicious!

Mr Hadfield finished off the day by reading the book 'The King of Tiny Things' and then we went  hunting for minibeasts. We found slugs, ladybirds, woodlice and plenty of worms! 

We all had a fantastic day learning more about our school grounds!

Year 2 World Book Day, by Miss Jones

Date: 3rd Mar 2022 @ 5:16pm

We have had a wonderful day celebrating World Book Day today. It was so lovely to see the children in their outfits and hear them talk about their favourite books. We enjoyed looking at each other's favourites too during Buddy Reading. The children read beautifully to each other and there was a real buzz around our classroom  the enthusiasm the children had for reading was contagious.  

As part of our World Book Day celebrations, the children in Year 2 were given a box of beautiful new books by the PTA. The children have loved exploring them in small groups today. Thank you very much to all involved with the PTA. I am sure we will enjoy these books for many years to come.

The children also enjoyed taking part in a World Book Day themed quiz in small teams. They really enjoyed coming up with their own quiz team name too. We also made bookmarks to use in class. 

Dragons cause mayhem in Year 2, by Miss Jones

Date: 18th Jan 2022 @ 4:42pm

Dragons have cause mayhem in the year 2 classroom today. The children enjoyed looking for clues to help work out what the dragons were doing in our class during lunchtime. 
They were very mischievous, little things!

We used the clues to write sentences using verbs to tell someone else what the dragons had been up to.  We also imagined what they would be doing if they were still here!

Ask your child to tell you some of the things those naughty dragons were doing.

Year 2 Owl Experience, by Miss Jones

Date: 9th Nov 2021 @ 3:55pm

This morning the Year 2 children had some surprise visitors waiting for them in the school hall. We we so thrilled to meet Libby and her four owls! Libby taught us about the different owls she brought with her and the owls enjoyed flying in the hall. The children were even brave enought to lie down and have an owl fly right over their heads. We hope you enjoy the photos and short video.

We cannot wait to learn more about owls this half term.

Year 2: Art, by Miss Jones

Date: 12th Sep 2021 @ 5:59pm

This week, Year 2 have started learning all about Surrealism and the artist, Joan Miro. This week we focused on 'The Hunter'. The children looked carefully at this piece, commenting on the shapes and objects they could see. We then looked closer and spotted what we thought could be a human hunter. We made our own versions using pencils and markers, before creating a ombré background. We can't wait to  continue exploring many more of Miro's most famous pieces this half term.

Year 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from Libby from the Feathery Folk, a bird of prey sanctuary today. She brought four feathery visitors to meet us; a little owl, a white-faced owl, a spotted eagle-owl and a barn owl.

Making our troll habitat, by Mrs Marshall

Date: 21st Oct 2020 @ 5:53pm

Year 2 had lots of fun making their troll habitats. They used lolly sticks to form their trip-trappy bridges and foraged in the woodland area to find suitable materials to create their habitats. Lots of the children said that they would like to add more detail to their habitats over half term (acorns, sticks,stones, or even make a little troll to go inside!) so if you would like to send me any pictures of this then please do 😀
