Curriculum Overview Summer Term

13th April - Becoming the Crayons.

We were all saddened to hear about the crayons quitting, so we decided to "step into their crayon wrappers". We explored their feelings, thoughts and emotions as to why they felt the way they did. A fantastic effort by everyone in Year 2, we definitely have some great actors and actresses in Year 2.

11th April - Who has been writing to Year 2? Year 2 received lots of letters today. The children were very excited and curious and couldn't wait to read the letters to each other to find out who the mysterious person behind the letters was. Well we were all in shock when we found out that all the crayons in Year 2 have decided to quit... (to be continued...)

Year 2 - Scientific Enquirers.   Year 2 have been busy investigating again in Science. Today, Tuesday 27th March, we were finding out all about the importance of hygiene and washing our hands. Using hand cream and glitter we tested four different methods of washing our hands. We found out that the best way to clean our hands is by using warm water and soap as it removed all the germs (glitter). Lots of learning fun and lots of glitter everywhere. We definitely had fun with this Science experiment.

Well done Year 2. What super scientists you all are!

On Wednesday 21st March, we were very lucky to work with an award-winning author, Stuart Reid. Year 2 took part in a creative writing workshop where they engaged in lots of discussion and shared their thoughts and ideas about how to be a creative writer. Stuart inspired and motivated the children to believe they can achieve any goal, whilst learning all about his own inspiration. We really enjoyed having him in Year 2 and cannot wait to have another opportunity to work with him again in the future. We have definitely been inspired by the wonderful Stuart Reid.

In Science, we have been learning all about animals, including humans. We decided to investigate if we get faster at activities as we get older. It was the 5 oldest children (including Miss Thomason) versus the 5 youngest children. We chose to find out how many star jumps we could do in one minute and to see which children could do the most. We found out that the older children were the quickest and we think that we do get faster as we get older, however Miss Thomason wasn't very fast.

Year 2 were fantastic scientific enquirers. Well done.
