Term 3 - Celebrating China
Year 2 really enjoyed celebrating China this term. We learnt a lot about Chinese culture and the children had great fun tasting some delicious Chinese food! They created some wonderful Willow pattern plates as well as some clay models of animals from the Chinese Zodiac. The children also wrote some wonderful Chinese stories in English.
Year 2 really enjoyed learning all about The Gunpowder Plot! In History,the children learnt about different historical events and ordered them on a timeline. Damson Class really enjoyed telling everyone about their learning as part of their Class Assembly. We also made some excellent houses designed to look like those from the 17th Century.
Year 2 put on a wonderful performance of Prickly Hay for our Christmas play this year which was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
Term 1 - Trains, Planes and Automobiles
The children enjoyed exploring different modes of transport from around the world this term, as well as naming and locating continents and oceans. They also used compass directions to plot a journey.

For both PE and swimming please make sure that earrings are taken out due to health and safety.
All personal belongings and clothing should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
In Year Two we encourage the children to read every day or at least three times a week. The home school reading books must come into school daily. The children have the opportunity to change their reading book every day and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school. We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read. In addition, the children have an opportunity to receive certificates for the amount of times they read at home as part of our new Race to Read challenge!
We are also introducing ERIC TIME (Everyone Reads In Class) across the school. ERIC Time will happen every Friday afternoon for ten minutes. To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading at this time.
