All About Me – Autumn 2017

Welcome to the new Year Two class of 2017-2018!

We are looking forward to an exciting term, full of lots of different activities whilst we are getting to know each other! Our theme this term is ‘All About Me’ and we have already been finding out lots about our bodies, including some of the internal organs humans have!

We will be thinking about growing up and how to stay healthy, and are especially looking forward to a visit from the Explorer Dome – a huge dome set up in the hall which the children go into – the theme of our session will be about healthy bodies.

After the half term, the children will get to design and make their own fruit salads, in between practising for the Christmas Play!

We will keep you updated as the term goes on with all the brilliant things we do!

Copsegrove Farm Visit

Class Two had an absolutely fantastic visit to Copsegrove Farm!! We spent the day in the woods, looking at geographical features and plants, as well as engaging in a whole variety of wonderful, inspiring activities! These included setting and then following treasure trails, cooking marshmallows and wraps by the fire, den building and one of the most favourite activities – making ‘tree trolls’ (faces made out of clay that the children pasted onto tree trunks!).

The children were all brilliant and all got fully and enthusiastically involved in every activity! It was fantastic to see how much they were enjoying their learning in a different, outdoor environment. A big thank you to all our adult helpers too, who also got fully involved in the day, especially with the den building, as well as getting messy making tree trolls!

Check out our photos below for lots of images of the children having a great time!IMG_3683 IMG_3694 IMG_3697 IMG_3699 IMG_3708 IMG_3710 IMG_3712 IMG_3713 IMG_3714 IMG_3715 IMG_3717 IMG_3718 IMG_3719 IMG_3722 IMG_3726 IMG_3728 IMG_3730 IMG_3731 IMG_3732 IMG_3733 IMG_3738 IMG_3739 IMG_3740 IMG_3741 IMG_3744 IMG_3745 IMG_3746 IMG_3748 IMG_3749 IMG_3752 IMG_3754 IMG_3760 IMG_3761 IMG_3762 IMG_3763 IMG_3769 IMG_3770 IMG_3771 IMG_3772 IMG_3774 IMG_3775 IMG_3777 IMG_3784 IMG_3785 IMG_3787 IMG_3790 IMG_3792 IMG_3796 IMG_3797 IMG_3799 IMG_3802 IMG_3804 IMG_3805 IMG_3813 IMG_3819 IMG_3827 IMG_3828 IMG_3829 IMG_3831 IMG_3832 IMG_3834 IMG_3835 IMG_3836 IMG_3837 IMG_3838 IMG_3839 IMG_3841 IMG_3843 IMG_3845 IMG_3847 IMG_3848 IMG_3850 IMG_3852 IMG_3854 IMG_3857 IMG_3858 IMG_3859 IMG_3863 IMG_3864 IMG_3865 IMG_3868 IMG_3870 IMG_3871 IMG_3873

Island Life – Summer 2017

We have had a busy time during this half term. Aside from learning about our new theme, the children have been busy working very hard to complete their SATs. They have all tried their best and showed a fantastic attitude and great concentration throughout. We are very proud of them all!

Our theme this term is looking at the United Kingdom, the geography of it, as well as its physical and human features. The children have so far enjoyed several outdoor activities, exploring plants around our school with our ‘scientist’ hats on. They have also enjoyed working with Y1 partners to explore the different human and physical features around our school (attached are photos of this session). The Year 2’s have also been on an exciting walk (in the pouring rain!!) around Bussage village to discover the different features we could see around there. Considering the amount of rain we experienced, the children were brilliant and kept up very high spirits throughout!!

We are looking forward to our visit to Copesgrove Farm just after the half term break and our Class Assembly, which will be later on in June.IMG_3636 IMG_3629 IMG_3625 IMG_3620 IMG_3618 IMG_3617 IMG_3616 IMG_3615 IMG_3614

Trip to Sudeley Castle

Class Two had a brilliant day at Sudeley Castle on Tuesday! We really enjoyed seeing lots of the things we have been learning about, such as arrow slits and battlements, but especially the models of Henry VIII and his six wives. We were lucky to meet Catherine Parr (Henry’s 6th wife) who lived at Sudeley Castle and who is buried there too – her tomb is in the Chapel in the castle grounds. The children also particularly enjoyed exploring the maze and the very large castle adventure playground! Thank you to our adult helpers, too, for giving up their time and who (hopefully!) enjoyed the day as much as we did!

Spring Term 2017 – Once Upon a Time

We are very excited to announce our Spring Term theme is ‘Once Upon a Time’! We will be using lots of different skills, especially how to be a good Historian, when researching all about Castles and life in the Medieval and Tudor times. We will also be learning all about Traditional Tales (which often begin ‘Once upon a time….’) as part of our English over the next few weeks.

We started our theme work with a fantastic workshop, run by the Freshwater Theatre Company’, which involved lots of drama, movement and fun! It was based around Castles and some of the different people that lived in Medieval Times. All the children thoroughly enjoyed it and we’re looking forward to lots more fun as the term continues! Please enjoy looking at some of our photographs from the workshop.

YEAR TWO SPELLING HELP!

I have attached a file which has lots of different spelling activities you could use at home to help your child practise their words and the spelling rules they are bringing home.

Autumn Term 2016 – On the Move!

img_5407We have had an exciting start to our learning in Class Two! Our theme work began with a fun afternoon exploring forces (pushes and pulls) using PE equipment, the adventure and trim trail.

The following week, we had our ‘Wheelie Day’ which (after a slight worry with the lunchtime thunderstorm!!) was very successful! The children loved riding their bikes, scooters and roller skates around the playground and our roundabout, finding out whether they had to push or pull to move their vehicle. We also thought about how they could change direction and move faster or slower.

We are looking forward to lots more exciting learning as the term goes on!

Spring Term 2016 – Fire! Fire!

We had another great term in Class Two whilst doing our theme ‘Fire! Fire!’. It all started with a brilliant workshop about the Great Fire of London. The children had a brilliant time learning lots of facts and joining in with lots of actions, songs and dancing – check out our photos linked to this blog for a couple of action snapshots!!

The children learnt to be super historians through exploring the events of the Great Fire of London. They used different sources of information to find out how the fire started, why it spread so quickly and how London was rebuilt afterwards. As part of our theme work, the children painted and collaged some very effective fire pictures and used tools and various other skills to make models of houses from 1666. Our photos attached have some great examples of these!

We also had our Class Assembly, along with Year 1, where we told the story of the fire and performed a very effective fire dance to the exciting music from Riverdance. As well as this, the children made their own information booklets about the Great Fire and learnt to sing the round ‘London’s Burning’.

Another thing the children enjoyed during the Spring term was World Book Day, where they dressed as their favourite character from Room on the Broom. We had lots of fun acting out the story and making bookmarks linked to this.

Autumn Term 2015

IMG_1928IMG_1927IMG_1910IMG_1909IMG_1865IMG_1864IMG_1862IMG_1861IMG_1860IMG_1859IMG_1857IMG_1853IMG_1852We had a busy and productive Autumn term in Class Two!

Our theme was ‘All About Me’ and the children enjoyed lots of activities and experiences in relation to this.

One exciting activity was our ‘Explorer Dome’ workshop where the children went inside a huge, inflatable dome to learn all about keeping healthy. The children also made fruit cocktails, which were very yummy and enjoyed by both adults and children alike!!

Just before the October half term, we had a special World Awareness Week, where the children explored cultures from different countries. In Class Two, the theme was France and the children made information booklets, did some counting and even made crepes!

We have included some photographs of some of our experiences for you to enjoy.

We are looking forward to sharing our Spring Term experiences with you very soon!

Transport models (Year 2: 2014-2015)

Here are our transport models the children made in the Autumn term!

The children were learning about different types of transport and all their components so they designed their own models of their favourite vehicles!

They then used a variety of tools (including the closely supervised use of a hacksaw!!), paint and glue to bring their designs to life.

All the children thoroughly enjoyed this project!
