Welcome to Year 2
Please find below a copy of the Year Group Information from the beginning of the year.
In year 2 we have been learning all about World War 1. In design technology we have worked in groups to create poppy wreathes using different tools and materials. We had lots of fun working reciprocally to make them. In English we have been learning how to follow and write instructions. We are looking forward to designing medals for a World War 1 hero, writing instructions for how to make the medal and then use a wide range of equipment to make them.
Our school has also taken part in Black History week. Year 2 produced some excellent work in connection with our book ‘The Other Side’.
Finally we had a lovely day thinking about the theme for Anti Bullying day which was ‘all different, all equal’. We created a year group jigsaw telling people how different we all are and ended the day by creating washing lines of odd socks. Well done year 2!
We have had a fabulous start to year 2 with lots of lovely, interesting lessons! We have been learning Yoga positions in PE, prepared Indian dips and tasted them in our Design Technology lessons and created Mehndi and Rangoli patterns in art.
We had a lovely topic day exploring India.
We used chopping and grating skills to create three Indian dips and had a great time tasting them with poppadoms. We also sketched Indian buildings and researched India using ipads, globes and atlases.
