Spring One 2018

The children had a fun visit from a member of the RNLI.  They listened to lots of information about the vital work done by the charity, rescuing people from the dangers of the sea.   They had the opportunity to ask questions to further their understanding, see video clips of rescue missions and try on their uniform.  We also learnt about how we can stary safe when we are in or near water including canals, rivers and the sea.  They found out about how to spot potential dangers, what different signs and flags mean and who to contact in an emergency.  We even had the opportunity to acti it out with each other!



The children in year 2 came to school dressed up as pirates and explorers to launch our new topic. We had lots of fun pretending to be different characters and learnt some pirate language such as 'Ahoy!' and 'Aye Aye Captain' that we could use in our role play. We also made treasure maps using coordinates and worked well as part of a team to go on a times tables treasure hunt.



Autumn Two 2017

Tamworth Castle - Year 2 enjoyed an exciting day out at Tamworth Castle to explore what it would be like to live and work in a castle.  We met the Lady of the Castle and learnt how to curtsy or bow to her when she entered the room.  Then we helped the servent to lay the table ready for the evening banquet.  The children learnt how to be squires, put a suit of armour together and looked at different weapons that would have been used to defend the castle.  Whilst we were there we also tried on different clothes that children may have worn in the past and explored different rooms in the castle, including the dungeon!



Mucky Laboratory - To launch our new topic 'Muck, Mess and mixtures', the children took part in a mucky, messy laboratory.  We took part in a range of fun but very messy activities!  These included painting mucky monsters, exploring what happens when we mix cornflour with water, using modelling clay to make structures and makinf imaginary potions in our class potions lab.


Autumn One 2017

During our first half term, the children in Year 2 have been very busy learning new skills.  We have been developing our knowledge of two digit numbers in maths and have also measured length and height using centimetres and metres.  As part of our English learning, the children have been acting as different characters from a story called 'The Rainbow Bird', thiking about how the characters feel.

Please find a selection of pictures from the acitivities children have enjoyed this half term.




2016 - The RNLI visited class two and the children learned all about safety near water.

Year 2 have had a very busy term taking part in lots of activities relating to our topic Muck, Mess and Mixtures.  Here are a few pictures to see:
