Y2 Science- Keeping Healthy, by Mrs Harrison

Date: 10th Apr 2024 @ 3:41pm

During the Spring Term, we learnt all about keeping ourselves healthy. To learn about the importance of hygeine, we used glitter to demonstrate how germs can spread quickly through touch. We then tried to remove the 'germs' (glitter) with a paper towel, some water and finally the soapy water. Lots of messy fun!

Year 2 Forest School, by Miss Jones

Date: 15th Mar 2024 @ 4:03pm

The children have had a busy day in forest school today and it has been amazing to see them working as a team and following the safety rules.

They have been learning all about micro habitats, how to identify a number of plants and trees and create an ideal habitat for a hedgehog 🦔. 

They learnt how to light a fire to toast their marshmallows and were all very sensible in keeping each other safe. 

Well done year 2, you've been brilliant!

Busy, busy!, by Miss Jones

Wow... Year 2 have had a busy few days and it's been lots of fun!

We have been working hard to secure our knowledge of division (we are very impressed with them).  We began our new Geography topic  'Let's go to the Arctic' where the children loved getting wrapped up and going on an arctic explore.

We have finished the week with art, exploring ways of rock painting. The children enjoyed learning all about how native Americans and Aborigines use to make their paint! 

Well done Year 2....we are off to a great start this term!

We have been exploring the artwork of Yayoi Kusama- particularly her pumpkins!
We had a go at drawing our own pumpkins and decorating them in the style of Kusama. Lots of polka dots exploring how to use paint to create effects such as stroking, dapping and twisting. So far they look great! 

Y2 Science, by Mrs Harrison

Date: 17th Oct 2023 @ 10:04pm

A very practical end to our Materials topic today! We investigated an unusual material - magic snow! It demonstrated absorbency in action. We then investigated which other materials are absorbent. 
Our challenge today was to design and make a new nappy. We took apart a nappy to see what was involved before designing our own using materials tested in previous lessons. Great learning on absorbency, waterproofing and strength! Wonderful cooperation in Year 2.

Forest School, by Miss Jones

Date: 6th Oct 2023 @ 4:01pm

What a fabulous day at Forest school. We built troll houses in our troll families for Timothy Limpet and Tabitha Lumpet. We then made our own trolls out of clay. The children worked incredibly in their teams and were so proud of what they achieved… so were we! This afternoon we went on a mini beast hunt and collected them for our micro habitat. Everyone enjoyed toasting marshmallows after some dragon sneeze practice! Well done Year 2… it has been a pleasure to watch your enthusiasm and creativity today, you’ve made me feel very proud!
