​May 2017

We have been making moving vehicles as part of our Design and Technology work. We looked at different axles and used them in our own designs.​

April 2017

After Easter we started golf lessons with James from Elite Sports. We are really enjoying it!

 
     
 

 

In early April, both year 2 classes went on a trip into Coventry. We first went to Holy Trinity Church in the city centre to meet Jeff, who showed us around the amazing building. Later on, we walked down to the Transport Museum where we spent the afternoon. We saw the Sir Frank Whittle statue and the Thrust 2 rocket car. What a fantanstic day!


March 2017

In maths, we have been learning about mass. We have been reading scales of different types. Using the balance scale, we have been predicting and weighing objects around the classroom using cubes. 

 
     
 

 

The weather has started to improve so we are having some PE outside. On the 23rd March, we were lucky to have Elite Sports UK in to do some work with us. We learned some tag rugby skills and also some Gaelic football. It was muddy and very, very fun!

February 2017

On 3rd February we had a maths day in aid of the NSPCC. We did maths activities all day! Here we are doing a maths treasure hunt. Then we were cracking a code so we could open a box and get the sweets!


January 2017

This month we are learning to sew. For our Christmas holiday project we were asked to make a presentation about London. To finish off the topic, we made bags which might be bought by a touri​st. First we designed them using fabric pens and then we sewed them together using a running stitch. Thank you to all our volunteers who came to help us with our sewing!


Our amazing London projects!​

 ​

On Thursday 19th January, some PGCE students from Warwick University came to school and did an afternoon of work based on a book called 'Flotsam' by David Weiner. We did lots of art, craft and writing activities. It was awesome!

December 2016

What a busy month! We went on a trip to Birmigham where we visited the museum and went to the theatre to see George's Marvellous Medicine. We also completed some amazing art work on the Great Fire of London inspired by JMW Turner.


November 2016

As part of Diwali week, we have been looking at Rangoli patterns. First we learned to colour them carefully and then we created our own using chunky chalk on the playground. Here are just a few of our wonderful designs!

 

October 2016

​We have been learning about long and short vowel sounds in Phonics and learning to apply the right spelling to word. We have also been sorting words and identifying the vowel sound they have. 

In maths we have been using grouping to divide objects and learning to write the number sentence in our maths jotters. Although we found it hard, we have been using the 'Growth Mindset' to attempt the challenge even though it might go wrong! We worked really well in pairs!

 

September 2016

We have made a fantastic start in year 2 and have been doing some very hard work. The whole school has been making sure they are doing lots of reading this half term so we have been enjoying books and magazines together every day!
