Welcome to year 2!
Miss Scotney, Miss Smith, Miss Potter and Mrs Price would like to welcome you to Year 2.
Here you will be able to find out about what your child is learning about and the activities they have enjoyed doing.
While we have lots of work to do, we still manage to have lots of fun!
We start the year with our Towers, Tunnels and Turrets Topic. We learn all about castles, bridges and lots more!
We have started our topic with a fantastic trip to Richmond Castle, where we explored the bailey, the keep, the towers, the great hall and The Richmond 16 exhibition. We were able to look inside the prison using an interactive video, exploring the cells and hallway.
We enjoyed last terms topic Mess, Muck and Mixtures where the children explored different materials and even had the chance to make their own slime!
This term our topic will be Land Ahoy! We learn all about life at sea, including life as a pirate and the life of the great explorer, Captain James Cook. We will look at all of the different materials used to make a pirate ship and decide which ones are the most effective.
Our next topic is Wriggle and Crawl. We will be learning about mini-beasts and creatures, which focuses mainly on Science.
During May we will be sitting out Key Stage 1 SATs. However, we still have lots of other fun!
After the Easter holidays, our topic is Scented Garden. We will be planting our own bulbs and seeds to see how they grow when different factors are removed.
After the May half term holiday our topic is Beachcombers. We will be learning all about the beach and its environment.
