Mr Wright, Mrs Harris, Mrs Shaverin and Miss McCann
welcome you to Year 2.
Here is Y2H...
and here is Y2W.
Take a peek below at our Curriculum Overview stating the topics we will cover this year.
We visited Blue Planet Aquarium as part of our 'Drop in the Ocean' topic, we had just the greatest time... We learnt about animals in our oceans and this has helped us to write explanation texts.
In Science we are looking at Health & Growth and asked the question...
What would we need to do to become a sports hero?
We already knew that we would need to eat a balanced diet and learnt more about the food groups; we also knew it would be important to keep fit.
We have had some special visitors...
Some 'babies' came to see us and we discussed and observed what they could and could not do at different ages, have a look at some of the photos below. We are going to compare the skills we have learnt since we were born.
In Year 2 our class author is Roald Dahl. We enjoyed celebrating his 100th anniversary at the beginning of the year and we read his stories on a weekly basis. In English, we looked at the variety of poems he wrote and learnt one off by heart...
