We are really looking forward to teaching the Year 2 children this year and can't wait to celebrate some of their successes and achievements with you. Please keep an eye out on our year group page for key information and to take a sneak peak at some of the fantastic learning that goes on inside and outside our classrooms.
NB: The first set of spellings and homework will not be set until Friday 15th September as we would like to give the children the opportunity to settle in to Year 2.

We had lots of fun showing off our best dance moves during our danceathon to raise money for Children In Need.
In art, we used the techniques we have learnt from our work on Jeannie Baker to create a collage linked to our Fire and Ice topic. First, we worked on creating collages of what was outside our classroom window - the playground! Then, we used our imagination to create collages of a dragon outside our window! Take a look at some of our lovely work:
We had a great time dressing to impress on Friday!
We had lots of fun learning about all the different events in the Great Fire of London! We read extracts from Samuel Pepys' diary, watched videos and then worked together to sequence the events in the correct order! Did you know the fire burned for four days?
In art, we worked hard to collect natural materials from our playground - we found lots of twigs, and who knew there was so many different types of leaves? Then we used them to create a collage in the style of Jeannie Baker. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Take a look at some of the highlights from our trip to Selly Manor. We made exciting discoveries about life in the 1600s and acted as history detectives as we toured a 500 year old house! We all made a fantastic start to our new history topic as we took part in a role play of the Great Fire of London. We can't wait to continue our learning back at school!
This week in our maths lessons, we have been learning about the properties of 2D shapes. Take a look at the regular and irregular 2D shapes we have been making together!
Take a look at our wonderful place value skills. This week in Maths we have been using part whole diagrams to help us to partition two digit numbers into tens and ones.
As part of our work in English, we have started exploring Instruction texts. Today we followed a set of instructions to make a scaly dragon head using printing. We discussed what features made the text easy to follow. Take a look at us in action. We were all very pleased with our final product!
On Thursday 8th September we made an exciting discovery when we found two unusual eggs in the trees next to our playground. Fortunately, the mystery was solved when we received a letter later in the day from the dragon curator explaining that he has left us some dragon eggs to look after. We are all very excited to be finding out all about dragons over the coming few weeks.
