Year 2

 Welcome to Year 2


This half term, our topic is 'Lend a helping hand!' and our big question is 'how can helping others help us too?'



We are reading the book The Robot and the Bluebird, which tells the story of a robot with a broken heart who makes a friend who teaches him a very important lesson.


Most of our topics link closely to the book - take a look at the document,
'Lend a helping hand learning journey' below, to find out more. 





PE is now on Monday afternoon [with coach] and Tuesday morning [Athletics] - please ensure your child has their PE in school. Thank you. 



We'll post photos of our wonderful learning journey, below. Be sure to check regularly, to see what we've been up to.

  Our lend a helping hand learning journey 

We worked so hard on our quizzes this week and got a whole class certificate for our amazing work. To celebrate we had a movie afternoon and watched the film of our story time novel, James and the Giant Peach!

It has been brilliant designing, making and evaluating our moving vehicles. Can you spot us in our teams with our fire trucks?

What a brilliant time we had exploring Staircase House! Can you spot us telling the story of Samuel Pepys and the Great Fire of London?

We have had a busy week so far, learning all about how to be world explorers from a real life explorer and working on our African drumming! What will our next adventure be?

Year 2 had a fantastic time on their Communitree trip! We were so proud of our waterproof dens and the new outdoor skills we learned!

We have been designing our own Tudor houses and learning about The Great Fire of London

We decorated our giant pumpkin using mehndi patterns.

After our trip to Kenyon Hall Farm, we used our pumpkins to create a boat, just like in the story - Pattan's Pumkin. Then we tested them to see if they sunk or floated. What fun we had!

The road safety lady came to visit us today. She taught us how to be safe when we cross the road.

Today, we had a special visitor in Year 2. We've been learning about India and Pakistan, and Mrs Rashid came to teach us about life in Pakistan. She brought lots of interesting things for us to look at.
