Year Two

Hello and welcome to Year 2.

I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer and I look forward to getting to know you all this year.

This term our English focus is on ‘The Seaside’. We will be following Talk for Writing and using two key texts, The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and The Snail and the Whale. We shall explore the stories through various activities including drama, poetry and instruction writing. We will then invent our own stories based on the model texts.

I will update this page, so please pop back to see what Year 2 has been up to.

This term Year 2 visited the Zoo as part of our English and Science topics. We learnt about the animals' habitats and how the zoo looks after them. We all had a fantastic time!

Year 2 have made delicious, healthy salads this term during D and T. We had to wash the vegetables and use the knives carefully. Here are some photos of their finished products. 

This term we have all been working very hard.

We began with our seaside topic and the story ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We came up with ‘disgusting’ sandwich fillings to scare off the seagulls. We chose some super adjectives, such as spicy, bitter and smelly.

Then we jumped into the world of fairy tales. Using Talk4writing we learnt our model text ‘Hansel and Gretel’ and then created our own versions. We shared these and our setting pictures during the Talk4writing sharing assembly.

Finally, we have just finished performing the Infant production ‘Santa’s Hat’. Who would have thought Santa would sit on his hat? What a silly Santa!
