Yesterday and today, children in Year 2 had a wonderful time preparing for Christmas. They loved dancing and playing games on Party Day, as well as completing Christmas art work. They even had a visit from Father Christmas!

This week, children in Year 2 have been busy preparing for Christmas. They have enjoyed making beautiful calendars which they intend to give out as Christmas presents. They also loved painting handmade houses which will be used as Christmas tree decorations. 

Friday 10th December

This week, children in Year 2, along with children in all other year groups, have enjoyed ‘Everybody Writes’ week. They used ‘’Twas the Night Before Christmas’ as inspiration to write their own descriptive story about a child spotting Father Christmas in their house on Christmas Eve night. Before writing, children acted out their idea in small groups. 

Friday 3rd December 

This week, the children in Year 2 have been busy practising their Christmas Nativity play. Each child decorated a star which will be used as part of our set design. We can’t wait for everyone to see the play!

This week, children in Year 2 began a ‘Great Fire of London’ dance topic with Mrs O’Hare. They created a dance which incorporated moves that symbolised stirring, kneading and baking bread as well as the spark that grew into the fire.

Friday 22nd October

This week, the children learned what electricity is and how they can stay safe around it. In groups, the children prepared a mini assembly and each group performed their assembly to the rest of the class. Everyone learned tips for staying safe e.g. no drinks near electrical items. 

Friday 15th October

This week, the children planned, wrote, edited and redrafted a letter to Mrs Finan. The results were outstanding. Everyone used their best handwriting, remembered capital letters, full stops and question marks, and some children even organised their writing into paragraphs. Well done, everyone!

Friday 8th October

This week, children in Year 2 enjoyed using the iPads to research what happened to St. Paul’s Cathedral during the Great Fire of London. Some children also discovered facts about how the cathedral was rebuilt and what it is like today. Using the findings from this research, the children were able to create eye-catching posters. 

Friday 1st October

Earlier this week, the children enjoyed a drama activity within their English lesson. They imagined they were the main character from ‘John Patrick Norman McHennessy, the boy who was always late’, thinking of new excuses for why he was late to school. The children loved pretending they were the teacher who shouted at John! 

Friday 24th September 

This week, children in Year 2 created Great Fire of London scenes by drawing the London skyline on black paper then cutting out the silhouette. Then they painted a fiery background ready for the silhouettes to be glued on top. The art work will make an eye-catching display for our classroom!

Friday 17th September

This week, the children enjoyed outdoor learning as part of their science lesson. They were tasked to find both natural and man-made objects and sort them into two separate piles. Everyone enjoyed being science explorers!
