Year 2's Blog

Gospel assembly

Year 2 led the school in a wonderful Gospel assembly that discussed how love grows and spreads the more it is passed around. How can you be a more loving person and bring more joy to those you love?


KS1 Visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

What an amazing day it was, today!

As part of our learning around the topic of "On Safari" we went on a visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Prior to the visit, we had plotted a route around the park, using a map to highlight three sections that contained the most African animals. We are already familiar with a variety of African animals but we wanted to learn more about their particular needs, focusing on what their habitat is like and what they eat. We practised identifying whether each animal we saw was a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore. We paid particular attention to the lions as our entitlement this half term is to meet a Big Cat. We spent time sketching a male lion, practicing the skills we had learnt during our re-drafting RUBRIC as part of our topic work.

It was an extremely windy day and we are immensely proud of how the children coped with the challenging weather. I was very impressed with how many lines of inquiry we were able to follow due to the amount of interest shown by the children and the quality of questions that they asked.

KS1s Outdoor Friday!

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

For the second week running Outdoor Friday has proved a success for Key Stage 1! We've spent an enjoyable hour exploring all the activities on the field, playground and in Year 1s outdoor area. We made oceans in bottles, decorative foil fish, went on a bug hunt, challenged ourselves in obstacle races and parachute games and enjoyed lots of other activities. What shall we do outside next week?

We have loved using chalk this half term to create soft tones and textures on a background of black paper. 

We think our polar bears show such character and our penguin chicks are just adorable!


Winter Wonderland

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

We hosted our annual Winter Wonderland this evening. Our creative children and the friends of our school produced some amazing merchandise to sell.

Thank you to everyone who could spare some time to support our children's creativity.

 


Ash Wednesday

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

Children in Year 2 learned about the meaning of Ash Wednesday including the symbolism of the ashes and the cross.  Mrs Waller held a small liturgy in the classroom where children were invited to accept the administration of a cross on their forehead using the ashes brought back from church by our KS2 children.  They shared ideas about how to be the best version of themselves and thought about the struggles that Jesus had endured during His 40 days and nights in the desert.
