Summer Term 1 - Water
Our new topic is called 'Water'.
We will be learning about the water cycle and about ocean life. We will find out about famous seafaring explorers and study the 'Sea and Sky' artwork by Matisse.
This half term your year 2 child will be taking national tests known as SATS. They sit test papers for reading, maths and spelling, grammar and punctuation. If you have any questions about the tests please speak to the year 2 teaching staff.
The Storm Whale - Benji Davies
We have been doing lots of work based on the book 'The Storm Whale'.
Matisse - Sea and Sky
Spring Term 2 - Life
We learned about life cycles and hibernation and about what humans and animasl need to survive. We found out about our own personal histories. We studied healthy diets and good hygiene as well. Book day and Fair Trade day were great fun. We also took part in the U Dance festival at the Sands Centre (see our photos below).
U Dance - Friday 10th March
Spring Term 1 - China
In the first half of the Spring our topic was called 'China'.
We found out about the Great Wall and about Chinese culture including their New Year celebrations and their Zodiac. Some of us were born in the year of the ox and some in the year of the tiger! All three of our year 2 classes worked on a lovely display all about the Chinese willow pattern and the story behind it.
Autumn term - Fire
Last half term our topic was called 'Fire'.
We learned all about festivals of light including Diwali and Hannukah. We learned about Guy Fawkes and went on to find out all about the 'Fire of London'. Do you like our firework pictures and our Great Fire of London display?
Road Safety Week
The children went out onto School Road today to practise using the Green Cross Code. They also designed 'Road Safety' posters back in class and are looking forward to seeing who wins the poster design competition on Friday.
