Year 2 got a very special delivery today. It was a book from Santa. Inside the book were instructions for how to make a Christmas lantern. We had lots of  fun making them!

November 2020 - Skipping

We were very lucky to have a skipping workshop with a professional skipper.  We had lots of fun but needed to use our growth mind set as it was very tricky!

November 2020 - English

Here are our The Bog Baby displays in the corridor.

November 2020 - English

Our English topic was the story called 'The Bog Baby' written by Jeanne Willis.  To start off the topic we had to solve a mystery.  We got given a jigsaw of the front cover.  To find out our new book, we had to complete the jigsaw.  Here are some pictures of us doing this activity.

October 2020 - History

As part of our work on Florence Nightingale, we had a very special visitor.  We enjoyed this workshop a lot and learnt some new facts about Florence Nightingale.

October 2020 - English

For our English work, we have looked at the story 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers.  Here are the displays full of our fantastic work.

September 2020 - Maths

 In maths, we have been subtracting.  We have been using partitioning (splitting into tens and ones) and using cubes to help us with this.

September 2020 - While We Can't Hug

To settle the children back into school and to help us discuss the things that would be different at the moment, we have looked at the book 'While We Can't Hug'.  We have done some art work of the characters and written our own version of the story and turned it into a book.  The children were very proud of the books that they created!  We have a lovely display of this work in class.

September 2020 - Spreading Our Wings

As part of our transition work into Year 2, we have read a story called 'The Cautious Caterpillar'.  This story is about a caterpillar who is scared to become a butterfly.  We linked this to moving from Year 1.  The children did a butterfly piece of work to tell us all about themselves.  Here are the displays that we have created.
