Year 2

We have had a great start to the New Year in Year Two including showcasing our fantastic work as artists at the Priestsic Art Exhibition. We also had an exciting day when we came to school dressed as our favourite book character for World Book day.

 

Spring One

What would make a good broomstick for Winnie the Witch?

Our friend Winnie needed our help because she had lost her broomstick at the seaside. We investigated different everyday materials to find out which would be the most suitable for a new one. We really enjoyed being scientists and devising our own texts including the comfort and flight tests!

 

Would you rather live next door to a witch or a princess?

We explored a range of traditional stories and compared them to the stories of Winnie the Witch by our star author Valerie Thomas. We have really enjoyed learning in our role-play areas Cinderella's kitchen and Winnie's house to help us explore characters and settings. We wrote a letter to Prince Hugo to persuade him not to marry Cinderella's ugly sister, Dippy. We really hope that he didn't choose her for a wife!

Spring Two

Would you rather have a lion or a hamster as a pet?

We welcomed some special visitors from White Post Farm and we were very excited to meet the pets! We learnt about what they ate, their homes and how to care for them. We decided which we would like to have as a pet. We then explored animals in the wild and how they have adapted to survive in different habitats all over the world. We selected our favourite animals and wrote reports just like the real wildlife experts! We also produced some beautiful artwork this term. Come and have a look at our super animal prints and skins.

We had a great start to our life in Year Two! Through our learning challenge curriculum we have been exploring Earth and places beyond...

Autumn One

Where would you rather live...earth or space?

We had a visit from a very special alien called Griz. We asked him questions and found out that he had crashed his spaceship in the school garden! We helped him to find out about Earth and then we learnt a song to help us remember the seven continents and five oceans. We researched, designed and built rockets for Griz to help him get home to Planet Zoid.

When he was safely home, we explored space and the solar system. We found out more about the moon. In Science we explored why we didn't float like an astronaut. We also found out why we had day and night. We found out about the life of Neil Armstrong and about the events of the first moon landing. We used all our research to help us decide if we would rather live on earth or in Space!

 

Autumn Two

Who or what started the great Fire of London?

We explored a significant event in British history. We decided to be history detectives to find out how the Great Fire of London started and who was responsible! We used our Pudding Lane role-play area to recreate London in 1666 to help us understand what happened and why.

We explored London today in our London Bus role-play area. We visited all the interesting and places there. We even wrote to the Queen! We had lots of fun writing our own stories about the Queen and her stolen possessions!

Spring Two

Would you rather have a lion or a hamster as a pet?

We welcomed some special visitors from Whitepost Farm and we were very excited to meet the pets. We learnt about what they ate, their homes and how to care for them. We had to decide from them all which one was our favourite. we then explored wild animals and how they have adapted to survive in their habitats. We selected our favourite animal and wrote reports, just like wild life experts! We have also produced some beautiful artwork which we have displayed on our classroom walls. Come and have a look at our super animal prints and skins.

Who or what started the Great Fire of London?

We are exploring a significant event in British history...we are being history detectives and are finding out how the great Fire of London started and who was responsible! We are researching through ICT, texts and drama, and are recreating London in 1666 to help us understand what happened and why. We are making bread but, hopefully, it won't catch fire!

We are exploring modern London in our London Bus role play area. We are stopping off and visiting all the exciting and interesting places there. We are even writing to the Queen! We are writing a tourists' guide for London to help visitors find their way around.
