Wow! Yet another amazing, busy week. We finished our week with our year group collective worship for Service!

As promised, some photographs of Y2 proving how talented  they are in their collective worship! May I also take this opportunity to thank all of our lovely friends and family for supporting their children during their special time today...

This half term we are observing the germination of seeds...

We had a lovely time at Stanley Park reading books and identifying common flowers...

The children have had a lovely time learning about different churches before building their own...

This week we have been reading 'Mr. Wolf's Pancakes'. We have sequenced the story and now we are writing our own version...

We have been sequencing the story and adding adjectives to make our writing more exciting.

We enjoyed looking at different holy books this week...

 We talked about differences and similarities between;

The Bible

Guru Granth Sahib - We wrote our own rules which would help the world to be a better place.

The Qur'an

and The Torah -We made our own Torah scrolls.

Holy Books

We have really enjoyed our Muck, Mess and Mixtures topic and learning to read time and find different amounts of money...

Another busy week hunting for habitats of mini-beasts...

We had an amazing afternoon with the illustrator Nick Sharratt sharing some of his ideas on how to draw characters from some of his books...

Another busy day...

this afternoon we looked  at work by an artist / photographer from Liverpool called Carl Warner. We created our own food landscapes...

As it is Chinese New Year on Saturday, we re-told and learned from stories from other cultures this week. We had a fantastic narrator as the Emperor...

We are looking forward to Nick Sharratt visiting us on the 2nd February to host a draw along!

Lost and Found - Oliver Jeffers

We have enjoyed reading Oliver Jeffers' books in class and have been using Lost and Found to inspire our writing in Mrs McCann's English Group and Mrs Sheeran& Mrs Thurgood's English Group.
Can you spot the differences between the animated version and the book.

Spring letter

Happy New Year!

welcome back, I hope you enjoyed your break! 

This half term our new topic is 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures' which we started this week with a  memorable afternoon...

 

 

Look what we got up to! Remember to look on the other year 2 class pages for more photographs of this afternoon.

This half term our new topic is Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. Our Christian Value is 'Forgivenesss' 

We built bridges, exploring how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable.

We visited Acorn Farm to find out about the needs of different animals to survive...

Friendship week

We worked cooperatively today to choose appropriate materials to build our castles with key features...

We built castles and used different projectiles to knock them down. How could we build strong castles so that they wouldn't be damaged when under attack?

Land Ahoy!

Which boat will float the best?
