International Mother of Languages Day 2023
To celebrate International Mother of Languages Day, Year 2 learnt to say 'hello' in lots of different languages.
We learnt a song before choosing our favourite language.
Science Show - Bubbles and Balloons
We were lucky enough to take part in a science show all about bubbles and balloons. We loved seeing the different bubbles and balloons and how they work.
We learnt that all bubbles are made from water, soap and air and that they were always be a sphere shape!
We also discovered that if a balloon has water in it, the water will heat up but the balloon will not pop!
Earth Art - Tree Sculptures
As part of our 'Earth Art' project, we used some natural resources to create our own tree sculptures.
We had a look at lots of different sculptures from around the world and what they are made from before we collected our own natural resources to make our tree sculptures.
Dress to Express Day 2023
As part of 'Children's Mental Health Week', we celebrated 'Dress to Express Day'.
We dressed up in our favourite outfit, favourite colour and even dressed as our favourite character!
Reading for Pleasure
To end the week, we have started reading for pleasure. The children get to choose a book of their choice from our book area before settling down to enjoy the story.
We love sharing our favourite books with our friends!
We've had a great time celebrating Christmas in Year 2!
We started by putting on our Christmas show 'The Sleepy Shepherd' for our grown ups before having a Christmas Class Party and a visit from Santa!
Merry Christmas everyone!
Design & Technology - Puppets
Year 2 had lots of fun researching, designing and creating their animal puppets. We started by practising our blanket stitch before we moved on to making our puppets by joining two pieces of felt together using the blanket stitch.
We are very proud of our work! Check them out below!
Year 2 loved Musical Monday this week!
Maths - Adding by crossing 10
The children in Year 2 have worked hard in maths this week. They have been looking at the tricky concept of addition by crossing 10. To help us work out some calculations, we used tens frames.
Art - Van Gogh
For our Autumn 1 art project, we looked at Van Gogh's self portraits before using some of his art as inspiration for our own artwork. We used different media to recreate the background before adding our own self portraits.
Black History Month 2022
To celebrate Black History Month this year, Year 2 have been learning all about Rosa Parks and why she is important. We researched her life before using the facts and information that we learnt to write a Rosa Parks fact file.
