‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term B

Week 5

This week we have been working on our DT topic ‘Perfect Pizzas’. We began by evaluating ready made pizzas. Many of the children were surprised to find they enjoyed mushroom pizza. We the sampled different vegetables to help us decide what we wanted on our pizza. After that we designed our pizza. Then we had great fun making it, spreading the tomato sauce, sprinkling cheese and chopping the toppings. Best of all we enjoyed eating them! After that, we evaluated them. 
In English, we completed our own version of the Highway Rat. We have also had fun making Easter cards and faberge Easter eggs. 
We thoroughly enjoyed watching our class mates perform in the rock concert, they were amazing! Amongst all of this, we had a great time in bushcraft identifying signs of spring. 
Wow what a busy week! We are ready for our Easter holidays.

The staff in Year 2 would like to wish our children and their families a wonderful Easter and a great, relaxing break. 

Rock Steady Concert

Week 4

The children have had a great week in school. They are really enjoying their Streetdance sessions with Chantelle.This week they have been learning about the Easter story, they enjoyed making palm leaves and acting out parts of the story. 

Week 3

What a busy week! The children have enjoyed learning about World War 1 and how animals were used during the war. They were also amazed to learn that mobile phones didn’t exist and only about 2 people out of every 100 owned a candlestick telephone. In maths, they have been using metres and deciding on the most suitable unit of measure metres or centimetres. They really enjoyed Red Nose Day too. 

Week 2

The children made an excellent jury for Goldilocks. They listened to the witnesses and examined the evidence but they decided Goldilocks was guilty.  Following this the children took part in a drama workshop, it was great to see them get into role. In science this week we have been discussing how winter changes to spring and how this affects the daylight hours. In maths, they have been measuring the length and height of objects. 

Goldilocks Court Case

Week 1

It has been lovely to see the children in school after the half term break. They have worked hard. We are reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children have even received a letter inviting them to be jurors in the Goldilocks court case next week, what will their verdict be, guilty or not guilty? In maths, the children have continued with their multiplying and dividing and addition and subtraction. It’s been another busy week in Year 2,
