Autumn Term Year 2

We hope your child has settled in well to Year 2 and that the transition has been easy for them. Please do get in touch if there is any way that we can help or if you have any queries. You will find more information in our Parents' Leaflet for Terms 1 and 2 (see below).

Below, you can see some of the activities that last year's Year 2 children were involved in:

What a fantastic day we had building our Tudor Houses. The children spent time looking at photos of Tudor Houses to identify the features before constructing their own models.

We had great fun completing the 'target, throw, run' sporting event this week. The children used their Secrets of Success and pushed themselves in teams to complete target challenges. Well done to all children in Year 2 for their great teamwork and top efforts.

National mile event- The whole school had great fun on Friday completing the challenge of running/ walking a mile. Year 2 had been training hard over the past few weeks and really impressed us with how well they pushed themselves. Well done, Year 2!

Red Nose Day- We enjoyed participating in a superhero parade and feeding the lambs in our costumes.

African Wow Day!

 

We had a fantastic time yesterday making safari vehicles out of recycling materials. We were so impressed by the final products. The children worked so hard to follow their designs.

Nature morning: We had a wonderful morning outside on Thursday exploring a range of natural objects (from sunflowers and chestnuts to antlers and badger skulls). The children enjoyed completing poetry writing and sketches. Keep scrolling down to find photo slideshows for both classes with pictures of the children hard at work.
