Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 class page. Here you will find photos and information for our class.

Year 2 Camp

 

On Friday the children in year 1 and 2 enjoyed a fun-packed day full of craft activities all around a pirate theme. They made clip on parrots, designed boats, made a telescope, printed bandanas and made a treasure map complete with jewels. 

Water races helped cool the children down before they learned a pirate dance.

The children all ate their chip supper out on the field in the glorious sunshine and enjoyed a pirate treasure hunt in time for year 1 to go home.

Year 2 enjoyed setting up their tents, making sure they had their sleeping bag, teddies and torches ready for bedtime. They enjoyed a brilliant movie before the fun of brushing your teeth with friends and getting ready for bed. 

The children eventually all settled down for a peaceful nights sleep and woke bright and early for breakfast the next morning.

The children were amazing, so kind and helpful to each other. It was such a wonderful experience for them all!

Thank you so much to all the parents who helped, we really couldn't have done it without all of your great tent building skills!

A big thank you too to all the staff who helped cook the food, made the crafts, sang and played with the children and especially those who gave up their Friday night to camp out.

What a brilliant year 2 camp!

Lepe Beach 

 

Wow what an amazing day! The children found crabs, shrimp, sea snails and a whole host of sea creatures in a seashore safari. From a coastal habitat to a grassy woodland habitat where the children  collected mini-beasts before hunting for giant bugs in  a woodland clearing. The sensory garden was a beautiful, calm break before swinging, sliding, climbing and playing at the play park. The children then loved being back by the sea to create some fantastic beach art.

Thank you to the Lepe Beach rangers for their expertise and enthusiasm and a massive thank you to all of the parents who braved a blustery but dry day to support the children in this fantastic educational visit.

Potato Challenge!

 

Back in the Spring, the children learnt about the different ways plants grow and were working scientifically to observe changes over time.

The children planted seed potatoes, during the frosts they protected the developing plants, they topped up the soil to encourage growth and watered them during sunny spells. Today they got to experience the fruits of their labour as each group dug up and weighed their crops.

The winning team, named Rainbow Mash, won with the greatest increase in weight, their 10g seed potato produced an impressive crop weighing in at 690g!

The children thought about reasons for the differences in weight and their observations showed that 'the larger the pot the greater the growth'. The children came up with explanations and thought that the larger pot might mean that there was more nutrition for the plant, more space and even better drainage.

Fantastic Scientific thinking Year 2, I hope you enjoy your potato supper!

The children have had a brilliant first few days back after the Easter holidays. In Maths they enjoyed understanding symmetry in patterns and shapes. They also had their first cricket coaching session.

In Science we are learning all about plants!

 

So far the children have created different habitats in pots to observe the changes that happen over time to the flowers planted. So far the polar one in the freezer has lost its stems and the salt water and sand coastal pot's flower is looking a little shrivelled up!

 

To find out about the life cycle of plants the children have planted different shaped seeds, beans and bulbs.

 

The children have also started their potato challenge. Which group's potato will harvest the biggest crop?

Our illustrations

In Guided Reading the children have been building up a repertoire of poems they can recite.

They really enjoyed performing 'Rhythm of life' by Michael Rosen and identifying the onomatopoeia in 'Voices of water' by Tony Mitton.

Take a look at the beautiful illustrations children created for the Walter De La Mare poem 'Snow'. The children had to learn the meaning of some tricky words and imagery to capture the poet's ideas in their sketches. 

Building Shapes

What a brilliant way to  learn about the properties of 3d shapes!

The children collaborated to construct 3d shapes from straws and blue-tac.

 

Wow, what a brilliant Nativity performance!

 

The children in Years R, 1 & 2 have worked so  hard learning the songs, dances and words to put on two fantastic performances of 'The Not Now Nativity'. We are so proud of them  all for overcoming their nerves to put on such a confident show.
