Y2 Parent Celebration

Year 2 had a very busy and fun day yesterday. We made sock puppets for our new story, ‘The Detective Dog’ which the children really enjoyed making.

We wanted to say thank you to all of the parents that came to the Y2 Celebration yesterday.

Chinese Visitors

We have been very lucky in Y2HM today as we have had some Chinese teachers come in to teach us how to write some Chinese characters.

The children were fabulous and enjoyed using the magic paper, special brushes and ink!

Green fingers! 

We have been embracing our learning about plants and using our green fingers – with different degrees of success! 

Here is a picture of the sunflowers in Y2HM. I hope you are looking after them at home and they continue to grow! 

Travel guide update!

The children have worked so hard in their writing over the last two weeks to complete their first two pages. 

After research, they have written their inviting information about different attractions and places to eat. Some of the children have take so much care with coping these up. 

Here are just a few examples 

Lowry Art

Over the last two afternoons, we have been looking at LS Lowry’s art work. The children noticed how he used dull colours and didn’t draw faces. 

The children then tried to recreate their own seascape pictures. Here is some of here first drafts. 

Reward time

In Year 2 the children have worked so hard this half term in their writing and SATs test. 

All the grown ups are so proud of how the children have resilient and tried their best so we had a little party! 

Here are some of the picture of them enjoying the weather and working together 

Geography 

This afternoon we learnt about physical and human geography features. Physical features as natural features of the earth and human features are the impact man has on the world. 

When we were confident with the two definitions of these, we linked this to our learning of Kenya. We have created a table to record features that we might find in the landscape of Kenya.

All about Kenya

We are very lucky in Year 2 today as we have had a special visitor, Becky Lyne. 

Becky is very knowledgeable about Kenya as she used to visit there as an athelete. 

She told us about there school day – we were surprised to find out that some children ran for 1 hour to get to school and arrived by 7am. 

We hope to create some fantastic poster to show some of these facts – watch out for them!
