Y2 Learning

Welcome to Year 2.
We are always busy. Enjoy following our learning journey.
Spring Term 2018
 Class Trip to The Tower of London
One sunny Wednesday, Year two caught the train to Liverpool Street Station and then walked to visit The Tower of London.
We have added a selection of photos from our visit. We saw many iron sculptures, visited The White Tower, met Keeper the dragon, we viewed the sparkling Crown Jewels and we had a tour of the The Tower with our own guide from 1666.
Happy New Year.
Welcome back. We hope that you had a good break.
This term Year two will study Castles and The Great Fire of London. We will look at plants and how they grow. We also take part in the RSPB Bird Watch. We will be recording the birds that visit the school during the week of January 29th. 
Key Stage 1 will be holding a phonics evening on Tuesday 16th January.  We will explain how phonics are taught and suggest ways in which you can support your child at home.
The Spring Newsletter can be found by clicking on the link to the right. The termly homework is also there. We are doing only one piece for the term. 
Autumn Term
Welcome to the new school year. 
Our topic for this half term is Chocolate.
We learn how to make chocolate, where the cacao bean grows, how it was used as currency and why it was important to the Aztec people.
 Our class story is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
Half Term Homework 
Every half term the children choose one activity from a grid to share with the class. This half term we have had wonderful castles, Motte and Bailey, Norman, Concentric and even one we could eat. We listened to PowerPoint's about castles the children had visited. We had amazing science and art combined to show how plants grow and what all the parts of a plant are called. We listened to stories, poems and letters the children had written. We invited other classes to come and share in the joy of the children's work. Please feel free to come and look too. We have attached some photos below of their inspiring homework. Well done everyone.
In the autumn term we had rugby coaching from Meg at Little Scrummers Rugby. 
The children have been taught to punt, catch, work in pairs and as teams. We have had fun filled inspired rugby lessons. We are very glad to be able to have Little Scrummers Rugby as an after school club next half term.
