Culture Week - January 2019

During culture week, we learnt about Islam.  We made mosques using lots of different material.  We also had a visitor in school to teach us about Chinese New Year.  We learnt a dragon dance.  We had lots of fun!

Biscuit Bear - January 2019

 Following on from our mystery, we got a letter the next day to say sorry for the mess.  It was from Biscuit Bear.  We are now doing some work on this in English lessons.  We designed and made Biscuit Bear friends.

Mystery in the classroom - January 2019

On the first day back after Christmas, Year 2 found a mess in their classrooms.  There were footprints down the corridor and in the classrooms and lots of baking equipment around the room.  We had to be detectives to think of who or what could have done it!

Diwali - November 2018

To celebrate Diwali, we had a visitor in school to teach us a Bollywood dance. This was lots of fun. We learnt some different moves - the bee, crab, chest and tiger.

Tommy Atkins visit - November 2018

 Year 2 enjoyed learning all about World War 1 when we had a visit from Tommy Atkins.  We enjoyed trying out all of the equipment and learning what it was really like for the soldiers.

Remembrance Day - November 2018

Year 2 went for a walk to Thornley Park to visit the Cenotaph after Remembrance Sunday.  We have enjoyed learning all about it and have remembered lots of the facts about Remembrance and World War 1.

Lyme Park - September 2018

 Year 2 went on a trip to Lyme Park to learn about habitats linked to our science topic.  We had a great day despite the wind and rain!
