Year 2 were very excited to be given the opportunity to try out fencing in their PE lesson this week. I think we have some naturals! Take a look at some of our moves! On guard!
A clip from our Great Fire of London day!
Year 2 was very lucky to have Art Forms come in to class for the day to deliver a session about the Great Fire of London. The children made houses to represent the ones that would of been in London during the great fire in 1666. We then took them outside into the nature garden where Annie showed us what would have happened once the bakery on Pudding Lane caught fire back on that day! We watched as the fire spread to all of our houses and burned them down one by one! A super exciting day! "We loved it!"
We had an exciting World of Work week last week. We had visitors from the PCO, parents and we pretended to be builders and worked together to build our own bridges. We found lots out about lots of different jobs and we talked about what we would like to be when we grow up.
Here is the topic homework menu for this half term. They are all about The Great Fire of London!
Thank you for ll your lovely homework last half time! Special congratulations to Max who was our homework champion!
We had an amazing day on our class trip to Tropical World and Roundhay Park. We enjoyed seeing all the different types of plants and animals in Tropical World then looking round the Park afterwards. We were very excited to see a flower display called 'Monet's Garden' in Roundhay Park because we have been recreating the painting in our art lessons back in school!
Look at our amazing costumes on World Book Day! Well done to Emaya and Riley for being chosen as Year 2 Best Costume winners!

In Science, we have been looking at being healthy. We found out about balanced diets and then we looked at different forms of exercise. Here are some pictures of us doing our investigation!
We created puppets based on animals you might find in the jungle and the the film 'The Jungle Book'. Some of us even made the character Mowgli, the man-cub in the film!
We looked at the artist Peter Thorpe in our art lessons. He created wonderful bright space pictures using pastels. We tried to recreate some of his work - We think we did an amazing job!
We had great fun performing our Christmas play 'Christmas with Aliens' to our parents. We worked really hard on the show. There was lots of singing and lines to remember and some of us had to do a dance too! Here are some pictures of us in our costumes.
We had a lovely visit from the RSPB. We went searching outside for different wildlife, including birds and mini-beasts. We found out about different habitats so we knew where to go hunting!
We looked at the artist Edward Tinga and created our own Tinga Tinga inspired paintings. We used the characters from the Tinga Tinga Tales that we read about in our English lessons.
We had great fun doing gymnastics in our PE lessons last half term. We loved going on the apparatus!
